    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ICAP plc (London, England (UK)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Telephone interview - Basic
    Assessment centre - Maths test, maths computer simulation, group project, interview.
    Tests and group projects were very easy. The interviewers are typical old-school brokers, and don't value your qualifications like other places do. In my opinion they wanted someone cocky and confident to walk in. If I had known this I would have changed my approach dramatically and not focused on being so professional.
