Financial Analyst Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at The Retirement Group.

Interview

I applied for the Financial Analyst Internship a few years ago. I applied to the position on the internet and after filling out an application and some basic questions I was contacted by the hiring manager. I was told I had to complete two projects to be considered for the position. After completing the projects, I was contacted and set up an interview.

The interview was pretty simple and basic questions were asked. They are looking to see if you are really committed to working hard and if you are enthusiastic about the position. If you are motivated and prove it in the interview, there is really no reason that you wouldn't get hired. Having background experience gives you something to talk about in the interview, but it probably isn't necessary as this is an do-it-all entry level analyst internship position. Overall, it was a pretty smooth hiring experience.

    Interview

    First you need to fill out the application form, and they will send you some research tasks. Then you need to do a presentation to the team once you finish the research task. It was a great experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at The Retirement Group (New York, NY) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Four interviews
    I feel that I would be a significant benefit to the workforce at the retirement group. I am looking to learn, and to learn a lot. I need to get my hands dirty with working in the field.

    Any task I would be given would be followed through, mechanically, analytically and logically. I feel i would make a good team member as an intern at your firm.--- What are your goals for this internship? My goals are knowledge, field experience, stronger resume, expanded financial vocabulary, customer relationships, and building a the strongest financial background possible.--- Tell us about a time you had a problem that you couldn't seem to solve? There was a time I could not find a way to pay for college. Luckily and with much hard work and research. I picked up a sport and worked at it everyday to gain a scholarship so that school became feasible. No problem can not be solved, it just takes the right dedication and structuring to achieve the desired outcome.--- Give one of your weaknesses and what you do to overcome that weakness? One weakness I have sometimes is limiting the number of projects I take on. I learned to overcome this by balancing my scheduling and efficiently appropriating time to finish projects in a timely manner.--- Are you interested in relocating, and if so where would you be interested in relocating? No, I am not interested in relocating seeing as I am full time student at Temple University.--- Are you available to come in to the SD, SF, VA, NY or Dallas office for an interview?New York City can be reached for interview. If not that, I am available most days for Skype interviews, and/or phone interview
