I worked at NewStar Financial full-time
Newstar was a great first job and good exposure as an analyst
Be prepared for the company to not be fully honest to you; low pay (all money goes to senior level buddies of the CEO who add very little value)
I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at NewStar Financial (Boston, MA) in November 2011.
First round was a 1 on 1 on campus, followed by a panel interview on at their office in the city. The 1 on 1 was basically a personality test and went over some basic details about my resume and some basic skills. Second round was four 30 minute interview and a one hour assessment test.
