    standard, if they like you - you have the job regardless of your experience. They do not get anyone who cannot really sell themselves. You still need to be able to present and have them like you at the same time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Citco (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Phone call, Face to Face with a small test. Do not focus much on the test(journal entries and cash reconciliation) if you did not do well ensure you do well 1:1 with the manager. At the end of the day they just want to see if you are easy to work with, skills could be learned.
