    Interview Details

    I was referred to this job by a friend who was leaving the firm to pursue his MBA. Initially the Head of Investment Banking contacted and had a detailed discussion. This was followed by phone interviews with other members of the team. Later I had a 1:1 interview with the Head of Investment Banking and was informed that I have been selected for the spot. However, they were not able to take the discussion forward since they were facing issues in securing work permits for people from Pakistan.
