Summer Analyst Interview

Summer Analyst

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Kotak Mahindra.

Interview Details – For the basic summer internship in Mumbai sponsored by my US Campus, first I just gave in resume and cover letter. After quite some time, I got a response which said I'd been selected to interview along with many others. While scheduling a Skype interview they asked me about my previous work experiences and basic skills. Knowing about the financial services sector, Kotak, and yourself is the most important thing here. My position needed going into Rural India, so they asked me about experiences I had which would qualify me for that.

Interview Question – What do you think about the idea that India's future could lie in it's rural economy?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, just a basic stipend (in rupees and not much). Make sure you ask them just what your project is, that's the important thing.
