    Applied online, received notification to schedule a telephone interview three days later. Standard basic behavioral fit interview with some company related questions thrown in.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at ICAP plc.

    Interview

    The phone interview asked several behavioral questions, technical questions (it's okay if you don't some financial terms), fraction-decimal conversion questions such as "what is 1/16 as decimal?" The final interview consisted of three parts: a quantitative and verbal reasoning test, a group exercise, and a panel interview. The test questions were similar to SAT/GRE questions, but the time limit was very constrained. The group exercise focused on presenting the products of ICAP, so I suggest familiarize yourself with the structure of the company, their services and products as preparation. The panel interview was almost stress-free, and the people seem really nice.
