I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days – interviewed at Soros Fund Management.
Applied through campus recruiting portal, accepted for first round interview. Interviewed on campus with 2 employees. Interviewers were not very friendly and expected intimate knowledge of the private equity process from their own point of view. Interview lasted about 20 minutes only. Did not make it through the first round interviews into the final round.

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Soros Fund Management (New York, NY) in April 2012.
HR contacted my university saying they would screen resumes for interviews. I heard back a couple of weeks later and conducted two interviews: one with an analyst and the second with a portfolio manager.
- DO you have any experience with financial modeling Answer Question
- No OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
The process took 1 day – interviewed at Soros Fund Management in June 2009.
Although I was applying for a position far senior to my level (the description required 10+ years experience at a top tier hedge fund, and I had less than 3), the interview was less intimidating than expected. The manager at Soros Fund was kind and soft-spoken. He quizzed me on C# .NET and SQL, nothing too advanced. Even though I did not get the job, I left with a good impression of the company, and will probably re-apply when I have more years of experience.

I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days – interviewed at Soros Fund Management in February 2010.
Company was very punctual in responding. Initially had one 10 minute interview, then offered full interview a week later which lasted over two hours. They really like candidates with a working knowledge of finance, and ask you questions that force you to think on the spot. They test you on industry knowledge.
