    Adviser Middle East Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Stephens in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with the Head of International Business Development. He had me participate in a conference call with his former Head of the Middle East, who had lived in Dubai. This individual living in Dubai, where 96% of the population is expatriates, indicated that he did not speak Arabic. But as most expatriates living in Dubai (an environment similar to Singapore, Shanghai, NY, or Chicago, truly believe that they are now "Middle East Experts". Since I have actually "been walking the walk" since 1980, while a Banker at both Merrill Lynch and Lehman Brothers, I sensed that there was a feeling of being quite defensive. Since I am a woman who speaks many languages, Arabic being just one, he must have felt a bit intimidated, or so it seemed.
