    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Chicago Board Options Exchange in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received a job description via email from their HR department. I replied back that I didn't meet all their requirements. Two weeks later, they contacted me again, saying they will still interview me for the position. The next day I scheduled a phone call with their HR department to get an overview of the job. I scheduled an in person interview with the manager and the director of the department.

    Contacted by a recruiter for the position. It was a great interview process and very efficient, however I felt like they could have been faster making a desicion.

    You pretty much need to know someone to get into the Intern Program. An executive then tells HR to put you in program and they do. They call and see what you want to do and where you think you will learn the most.
