    Interview

    Non-core process: 2 rounds of phone interviews, followed by a non-core superday about a couple weeks later. First round was mostly behavioral, very basic technicals. Second round was more technical and very resume-based. Superday was 3 20 minute interviews. Each interview had a specific purpose. First interview was resume based to see if you're smart. Second round is all technical. Third round is mostly behavioral, to get to know you better.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Jefferies & Company (New York, NY).

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • How is BS different from two other accounting statements?   1 Answer

    Interview

    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.
