    I applied through college or university – interviewed at S&P Capital IQ.

    Interview Details

    Talked to Capital IQ recruiter coming to career fair on my college and I dropped off my resume. Later I was invited to the in person interview held in my college. I was pretty surprised when I walked in and get a 5-6 pages of coding/database questions, which I have to write down the answer just like a CS class midterm. I didn't finish it and in the end the recruiter went over all the questions with me.
    After that first interview, I was invited to the final interview in new york office. Talked to a few developers and over all the process went well and smoothly.
