Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Dimensional Fund Advisors (Chicago, IL) in January 2017.

Interview

Classic finance face-to-face interview at the AEA meetings. Leadership partially disrepsectful in interview, but juniors seemed nice. I would question the atmosphere in the team, but cannot judge 100%. Give it a try, the strategy they are running may be fine.

Interview Questions

  • Why DFA? Equity factor models (Fama French). More on their type of marketing.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dimensional Fund Advisors in January 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed at the AEA meetings. 2 researchers + 1 HR, 30 minutes. Was asked to describe my research; they asked tough questions about it (how does a certain structure of my data that I hadn't discussed affect my results? how would I test for it?). I brought up that I had taken John Cochrane's Asset Pricing class on Coursera, was asked what was my most important take-away. We ended up discussing the EMH, asset price predictability.
