    First interview round - brief telephone interview where they asked general questions about you and about your motivation. No extensive preparation for this round needed.

    Second interview round - invited up to Stockholm for the SEB assessment day where you first were introduced to SEB, had to do assessment tests (only logical), a group-case (regarding customer service), and where you met with your potential future boss, a SEB HR person, and an external recruiter. During the last interview (that lasted for about 30 min), you had to prepare a presentation which they had informed you about before, and you were asked questions about why credit analysis in addition to a few technical questions. I got a question regarding the impact on the BS, PL and CFS when writing off goodwill.

    Third interview round - first two hours of tests (personal + logical tests) and one hour in-depth interview with the external recruiters. Then a credit analysis related individual case very much related to credit analysis (2 hrs prep + 1 hr presentation) and then a meeting with your future potential boss.
