Summer Associate Interview

Summer Associate
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Credit Suisse in January 2013.

Interview Details – Applied through school and got an interview. I had not networked with them during the semester though. If you are selected after the first round there is a 'super day' interview in New York the following Friday.
All questions were pretty straight forward. They asked why banking, behavioral questions focused on leadership, and about current financial news.
Make sure you read the Wall Street Journal that morning. It is also helpful to follow deals and have details on those deals to talk about.
