    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Applied through a grad careers page, was invited to an online test and then got a call from HR where she asked me a bunch of basic questions about why banking, why Credit Suisse, etc., and then a couple of questions about the market (all very easy to answer as long as you read the papers daily - which I highly suggest you do). At the end of the call I was invited for an assessment center which consisted of a small case study exercise, followed by 4 interviews for 4 different teams. I received offers from all four.

    Interview Questions
