    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jefferies (Baltimore, MD) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The phone interview was heavy on technicals. They don't seem to care about fit at all. All they want are really intelligent people. The person who interviewed me was a younger person in the firm. I'm not sure exactly why they were the one to run the interview. The phone interview was extremely annoying since they were 30 minutes late.

    Interview

    I had a couple rounds of informal phone interviews. There was a first round interview that was on campus. This was a two on one interview. This was followed by a super day in New York with multiple rounds, I did not attend. Networking with the team prior to the interview was very helpful. The interviewers were friendly but maintained professionalism at all times. The interview experience at Jefferies was similar to those I have experienced at other investment banks.

    Interview Questions

    • In depth technical questions about basic valuation and accounting techniques. The interview was fair but somewhat challenging. There was a mix of the standard behavioral questions.   Answer Question
