    First stage is done via Online application and Online tests. If you passed it, you will be invited to a 30 mints telephone interview. It took me about a month till I was invited for an interview since I completed the online tests. The last stage is the Accessmen Center including numerical test and 1:1 interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    It was a very long a tiresome process. Over 15 interviews in one day and they did not seem to cater for people who had not studied finance to a university level. It was intimidating and halfway through the day I was told by a HR member that there was only one place left on the internship anyway.
