    Sales Executive Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Preqin.

    Interview Details

    I went through a phone interview with HR. She will ask you why you want to work there, what you know about the role, pretty standard prep questions. You will then schedule an in person second round interview with two managers who again will ask you about what you currently do, why you want to work there, etc. You should really do your homework on the company and understand their clients. Know the major asset classes covered: PE, Hedge Funds, Real Estate, and Infrastructure. Finally one last interview with the Head of US Operations, which is basically the same interview as number two. I heard back with an offer within a week.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Preqin in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Stage One is a phone interview where they are looking for confident, coherant people that can speak well. One of the test question is to be able to express myself clearly in Chinese.

    Stage Two is also the final stage where they will present a script with some points and as long as you can combine them smoothly into a sales pitch, it will be fine.
