I applied in-person. The process took 5 months. I interviewed at Penn State

Interview

Not great. To be honest, I had no idea how the real recruiting process worked - and followed whatever was told to me at face value. You have to be part of a feeder organization before interviewing for the actual fund, and interact with Fund Managers in the form of mock interviews.

Interview Questions
  • Why is your GPA so low ? Why should we hire you if your GPA is so low? *proceeds to list strengths* Asked me to give an example of that strength.
