    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Highland Capital (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed by phone with the Director of Quant Department. Went through the resume and then asked around 5-6 technical questions, including basic concepts of risk, probability theory, time series, including some calculations.
