Associate Intern (IV Month Co-op) Interview

Associate Intern (IV Month Co-op)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Scotiabank in August 2013.

Interview Details – Interview was not technical at all. My sense was that the individual who hired me really just wanted to get to know me, and I guess my resume spoke for itself. Questions were about what I wanted to get out of the job, my expectations, future goals, etc.

Interview Question – Can't say anything in my interview would be considered difficult. Just be prepared to speak about your future and what you really want to make your career about. Have specific goals and a well planned-out time line.   Answer Question
