    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Jefferies & Company in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was mainly done through the career center. I networked a lot using my alumni to get myself out there and make sure people knew me. The interview process was a technical heavy one, they really see if you understand what you are getting yourself into. Once the process finished, super day was that weekend and offers following immediately.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Jefferies & Company in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    The first round was a phone interview with a VP who's an alum from my school. It was standard, with questions like walk me through your resume, why banking, why Jefferies. The technical questions were pretty easy. I left a highly positive impression and got through to the second round, which was another phone interview with an associate. This one was short, I did pretty well on the regular fit questions but choked a bit on the technical question. Heard back 10 days later that I did not get past it because my technical background "was not as solid as some of my peers."

    Interview Details

    First round: numeracy and verbal reasoning tests, the usual SHL stuff. Then two interviews, very conversational, relaxed, touched on a tiny bit of technical stuff with regards to valuation but that was all.

    Second round: Three interviews then group exercise and presentation. Two of the three interviews again very conversational, they just want to know why Jefferies, why IBD, why not a bigger firm, which department are you interested in- the usual questions. Then there was the technical interview and you have to make sure you direct it to your strengths-what you know about otherwise they will probe and probe at a particular aspect of valuation. The interviewer got very detailed in his questions.

    Contacted me for a phone interview and spoke within two days. Spoke with a young analyst who had been with firm for just over a year. Standard questions, just going over different aspects of resume. Specifically asked about most important/hardest courses taken thus far and which parts of my leadership and community experience were most important

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Jefferies & Company in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Two 40mins interviews. The first one was technical such as valuation model, what companies do with extra cash, something about special dividends. The second was motivational, just normal behavioral questions, nothing special. Then we were directed to a room to complete numerical and verbal reasoning tests which were exactly the same kind of questions as other online tests.
