    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Citi in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Got the interview by applying online. The interview was held on campus and it was a 30 minute interview with 2 investment bankers interviewing me. First 15 minutes of the interview was a fit interview and the second half was more technical. Even though I did not do well in the technical portion the interviewers were pretty understanding about it as they knew I was not a business student. The interviewers also took the time after the interview to respond to my queries for feedback and they gave me very detailed and useful feedback.
