I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Lazard (Chicago, IL) in February 2011.
Went in without much of a corporate finance background, and got peppered with quantitative financial questions despite saying up front that my classes were mainly just economics. So kind of a struggle to keep going through all these concepts I hadn't heard of before.

Online application along with 4 questions requiring 250 word answers. Then online Numerical Test. Then online Verbal Reasoning Test. Then Invited to AC... Resit Numerical Test. Case study test - Compile an overview on a company given a lot of information. And a 2-1 HR interview, why lazard, etc. Then Invited to another AC this time with 5 other candidates....Lunch, followed by a group assessment, followed by a presentation. Group assessment - everyone was given an aquisition target and the group had to decide which was the best. Presentation - give presentation where you are IB, pitching to a client. Then invited back for last round, two 1-1 interviews, more fit interviews rather than technical.

The process took 1 day – interviewed at Lazard (London, England (UK)) in November 2009.
Recruitment was organized by the Cornell Partnership. They conduct the first round interviews. If successful, you are invited to an assessment centre at the Lazard Offices. Structure of Assessment Centre: 1. Numerical Test 2. Group Exercises 3. Cut 4. 1:1 interview with two senior employees The offices are very nice and located in Mayfair. The people who interviewed me were really looking for a personal fit rather than your technical skills. As Lazard places very high importance on the strategic aspect of M&A transactions, commercial awareness is one of their number one criteria in selecting candidates. The analysts and associates I met during the networking lunch all seemed to be very happy about working at Lazard even though one of the employees told me that "the work is brutal". Nevertheless, he noted that it is extremely rewarding, especially in terms of the board level exposure you get.
