Corporate Finance Summer Internship Interview

Corporate Finance Summer Internship
London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at EY in November 2013.

Interview Details – Went through the standard application process, but got declined at the one-on-one interview stage. Thought it went quite well afterwards but received an email the next day saying that I wouldn't be progressing any further. The annoying thing was that my interviewer hadn't even seen my CV, and said he wouldn't be making any decisions on the application he'd just fill in a feedback form, so wondering if my application was weak and my interview didn't pick it up that much.

Interview Question – The questions were mainly competency questions with a few why corporate finance questions dotted around. Hardest question was what should EY do differently to further their success.   Answer Question

Executive Interview

Executive
London, England (UK)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at EY in October 2013.

Interview Details – It was sent by our alumni who works in EY. Then I sent my CV for him and he helped to pass it to the HR. At beginning they said I was overqualified and suddenly they said they were not hiring. But after a month, the alumni contacted me and asked if I was still interested. I said yes and they processed it. I was invited to the London's office for the interview with the department Director and Assistant Director. Both were very friendly and the interview was very casual even though I didn't manage to tackle the financial case study. However it was a great experience!

Interview Question – Financial case study which I didn't prepare at all since I was told it's a interview session   Answer Question
