    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lazard (Chicago, IL) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Went in without much of a corporate finance background, and got peppered with quantitative financial questions despite saying up front that my classes were mainly just economics. So kind of a struggle to keep going through all these concepts I hadn't heard of before.

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Lazard (New York, NY) in October 2010.

    Interview

    A lot of fit and mental math. Definitely need to know the basics of accounting and finance. They really want to know why IB because they expect you to stay on for 2 years. Very nice guys in general. Really have to show a passion for what you are applying to.
