How many angels fit on the head of a pin

3 Answers


hey! I don't even understand this question!! Native English speakers, "angels" in the heaven? "pin" to use on the paper? Makes no sense to me.

It's a question without an answer that you would reasonably know. Like, "How many ping pong balls can fit in a bus?" The point is to see how logically you work through the answer.

Case interview: what are the strengths and threats of this new business opportunity?

Q: why are you interested in capital one and this position in particular?

Tell me about a time where you persuaded someone to see things your way.

How would you analyze this (very specific) question? Why this way and not any of these other ways?

Financial System Experience and how it related to job function

Different methods for valuing companies, basic income statement analysis, break-even analysis, etc.

No difficult questions. Very professional. Be prepared for behavioral as well as professional questions.
