    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Zürich (Switzerland)).

    Interview

    First phone call with the director who explains the team and tasks. It is just a speech really informal where he asks you about your plans and ambition and also he goes through your CV. Then, face-to-face interview only based on your motivation. It lasts one hour, but even in this case I suggest to be really calm, I think this is the key
