Then invited to the final round interview. Interviewed with 6 people, from traders to directors. Mainly talked about everything on my resume and my interest in this industry.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Citi.

    Interview Details

    Almost all fit questions. Asked about my past experiences. Why Citi? Why risk? Why they would choose me rather than other candidates? Talk about strength and weakness.

    Nothing out of expectation.

    They have a nice office site in TriBeCa. Really good view.

    People are more approachable and friendly.
