Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Kobre & Kim (New York, NY).

Interview

I was quickly contacted for an interview on campus after I applied. Following this, I was asked to select the regional office I was more interested in (DC or NY) and then invited for a series of interviews and lunch. Everyone was friendly and open about their experiences with the firm.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kobre & Kim (New York, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through my school's campus recruiting. They scheduled an interview very quickly, and then brought me to the New York office for a second interview a few weeks later. Both interviews were conducted entirely by other analysts, which I found a little surprising, but not unpleasantly so! Everyone I met was very sharp and welcoming.

    Interview

    I applied through my school's career services and was accepted for a first-round interview on campus. The interview was very straightforward, with two analysts asking me questions for thirty minutes. We walked through my resume and they asked about relevant work experience. There was one question about my writing sample. At the end, they asked a couple behavioral questions about how I worked on a team, how I handled failure, and how I would feel about defending disreputable corporate clients. Overall, a very friendly interview that would be manageable with some light preparation.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you tell me about an experience when you didn't get along with a coworker? How did you handle the situation?   Answer Question

    Interview

    I was contacted at a school event. It was alright. They asked standard questions. I felt a bit uncomfortable by some of the jokes made in the interview. I realized the financial sector of law isn't my cup of tea.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kobre & Kim (New York, NY) in January 2011.

    Interview

    two phone interviews (30 minutes each with 2 different analysts each time), and one super day interview which consisted of two 1-hour interviews with 2 analysts each and an attorney interview. It was definitely very misleading because the company was very nice and made it seem like they really wanted me but a week later, i received an email stating that they were unable to offer me a position. Overall, the people were nice, smart, and professional.
