    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at CME Group (London, England, England) in Jul 2021


    Asked very tough questions about many different areas in finance. Coming from a non financial background and applying for a technological internship, I felt that the interview was very heavy on my background knowledge. Every answer made the interviewer ask more questions. Left the interview defeated

    What financial stats do you keep up with?
