I applied through college or university and interviewed at Jefferies & Company.

Interview Details – On-campus two back-to-back interviews. The first was behavioral and the second was technical. The behavioral was quite relaxed, questions ranging from talking through resume, how you allocated time during a week (remember to mention you spent a lot of time social) and macro economic questions. The technical one touched basic accounting, metrics, and DCF. Just make sure that you know all the basic things and can handle challenges under pressure.

Interview Question – How is BS different from two other accounting statements?   View Answer

Difficult Interview

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Jefferies & Company.

Interview Details – Applied through an employee referral. Interview process consisted of two phone screens and a Super Day. 1st round interview was very straightforward and interviewers were nice. Asked standard questions about the main valuation methodologies and walking through DCF. not too hard.

2nd round interviewers asked similar questions but with more of a markets focus. No accounting questions were asked. interviewers lacked energy.

Interview Question – you don't have the same pedigree as the other candidates. why should we hire you?   Answer Question
