    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Gelber Group.

    After reviewing my resume, I was contacted by a trader on the phone for a behavioral interview. I heard back a few days later and was assigned a quantitative assessment, with two weeks to complete it. I was contacted more than a month after having sent my deliverables, for a follow up technical interview with a quantitative trader. Everything went well and I received an offer to join their summer internship program early January.

This was followed by a final phone interview where I was offered a position as an intern.

    Interview

    I applied online through the Gelber Group website. I was contacted by email around two months after I applied. They arranged a phone interview. The phone interview was pretty short, around 25 minutes. I did not hear back from them for a few weeks, so I am assuming I did not make it to the next round.
