Easy Interview

Internship Interview

Internship
Chicago, IL

The process took a day - interviewed at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in August 2010.

Interview Details – I applied through my school's career website. They called me a few days later, scheduled an interview. The interviewer asked about my past leadership and intensively explained the niche of their firm and nature of the internship. He was prepping me for a lot of cold calling and told me that its a "necessary evil" of the industry, and that it would be worth it to have their name on my resume for future employers.

Interview Question – What would be your biggest challenge with cold calling?   Answer Question

Internship Interview

Internship
London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in August 2011.

Interview Details – Interview consists of many technical questions and questions of the outlook of the economy. Interview consists of 4 1:1 interviews. Interviewers asked about the pricing of bonds, stock market outlook and previous stock price of Morgan Stanley.
Interview was very laid back and interviewers were really nice and professional people. I did not get the internship as they decided to hire internally.
