    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at NewStar Financial (Boston, MA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    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.
