    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at KBW in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online through my school's career services website. Took about 2 weeks to hear back and scheduled an on-campus interview for about 10 days later. Interview was a pretty standard 2 on 1 30-minute first round with a mix of behavioral and technical. Behavioral questions were pretty straight forward - why KBW? why IB? biggest weakness? What should I know about you that's not on your resume? That last one threw me a little. Technicals started pretty easy, however, make sure if you mention a multiple used for valuation, you completely understand it and what can drive different multiples in two similar companies.
