    I interviewed through college or university - 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.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. 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.
