    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at TD Securities.

    Interview Details

    Simple process, applied online through my college's recruitment network, had a first round on campus interview, then for the final interview day had four interviews back to back with a managing director, two VP's, and an associate from different divisions within the corporate credit management. All five of the interviews were focused on getting to know what my personality was like, how I handled different situations in the past, what kind of experiences I have had, how they would be relevant to this position, why I was interested in corporate credit, etc. It was easy, and the conversations were all enjoyable, if not a bit repetitive. During the final day of interviews they also provided a great deal of information to me about the position and the role I would be filling, and what they were really looking for in an analyst.
