Investment Banking Analyst Interview

Investment Banking Analyst
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Duff & Phelps in November 2011.

Interview Details – I was hired out of college. There was no on campus recruiting in my year. A buddy told me about it, I submitted my resume, had a call with a managing director and it turned out that it went well. They had me up for a super day and ended up offering me a job.

Interview Question – The business case was by far the most challenging. We had to essentially come up with different aspects of a merger with people also interviewing who you just met.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations as I was coming from college.

Investment Banking Analyst Interview

Investment Banking Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Duff & Phelps in October 2011.

Interview Details – I did a first round interview on campus. Then trekked to NYC for second round through Amtrak. Started at 10 in the morning with a group case interview then had about 5 more one on one interviews. The office is pretty nice; its the building across from Blackrock's building and has a bunch of big firms in there such as Morgan Stanley. The people are nice and cool to hangout with.

Very Difficult Interview

Investment Banking Analyst Interview

Investment Banking Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Duff & Phelps in October 2010.

Interview Details – DP came and recruited at my university. After initially getting turned down for an interview, I spoke with the recruiter on campus and asked them to reconsider me for the position. They did, and an interview was set up for later that week.

At an info session before the interviews, DP told us to make sure we knew our technical information, because thats how most applicants get killed during the interview. Along with that, DP was definitely one of the toughest interviews I've had this season, asking very specific questions.
