    Campus standard interview either by a partner or HR recruiter; second round is on site interview, consisting of three rounds, half day. One manager, one partner and senior associate. Interview with partner is the key. Once nail that down, pretty much you're set.

    Interview Details

    I join the campus recruiting and have two rounds of interview. During the recruiting process, they will have various events to let us get to know their people. I join most of them and have good relationship with the main recruiter. The office visit is a pleasant experience. I get to know lots of associates near my age. They are often most helpful to understand the real work environment.
