    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Piper Jaffray.

    Interview

    First round phone interview with a current Piper associate. Mix of standard behavioral questions and questions about background and resume. Nothing too technical. Asked for a stock pitch, but it was very high-level and was not probed too deeply.
