    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Société Générale in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    L'offre de stage avait été publiée sur l'intranet de mon école. Après avoir envoyé mon CV à l'adresse mail qui était mentionnée, j'ai reçu un appel des ressources humaines le jour suivant et nous avons fixé mon premier entretien avec les RH.

    J'ai dû attendre 2 jours supplémentaires après cela, et j'ai eu de nouveaux entretiens de programmés avec les associés et les vice-présidents de l'équipe (au total 3 entretiens).

    Après ces 3 entretiens, j'ai attendu 2 semaines supplémentaires et j'ai eu 3 autres entretiens avec les directeurs généraux et le chef d'équipe. Pour les 3 derniers entretiens, on m'a dit qu'ils devaient choisir entre 2 candidats. Donc au total 7 entretiens en l'espace d'1 mois et on m'a donné le poste.

    Les ressources humaines m'ont posé quelques questions basiques sur mes compétences. Les associés et les vice-présidents ont vérifié mes connaissances techniques, en se focalisant sur les mathématiques financières. Les directeurs généraux et le chef d'équipe se sont chargés de savoir si je correspondais bien au poste et m'ont parlé des affaires courantes.

    The ad for this internship came on the school intranet. After sending my resume at the given email id, I got call from HR next day and scheduled the first interview with HR.

    I had to wait for 2 more days after this, and got further interviews scheduled with the associates and VPs from the team (in total 3 interviews).

    After these 3 interviews, I waited for 2 more weeks and had 3 more interviews with MDs and team leader. For the final 3 interviews, I was told that they have to decide between 2 candidates. So in total 7 interviews over the span of 1 month and was awarded the offer.

    HR asked some basic competency questions. Associates & VPs were checking technical knowledge, mainly focusing on the bond maths. MDs and team head asked fit questions and current affairs.

    Interview Questions
    • Les entretiens se sont déroulés en été 2010 lorsque la Grèce avait annoncé avoir fait faillite et qu'on craignait que les prochains pays soient l'Espagne, l'Irlande, l'Italie ou le Portugal.

    Not much anybody with exposure to banking can be hired. Know basics of banking and the project one has worked on. Show bit on project management and communication and you are sure shot for HR round. It is a slow paced company so do not expect much on day to day work.
