Professional Services Interview

Professional Services
New York, NY

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GoldenSource Corporation in September 2009.

Interview Details – The process was pretty straightforward. I got an initial call from HR, who asked me to describe my experience in more detail. I then met with the head of the services group, who described the position to me, explained some of the details (travel expectations, current projects, etc). Based on my experience, I got an offer.

Interview Question – What do you know about derivatives data?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I'd heard that the company had been laying people off, so i was concerned about long-term job security.
