    Like most elections, the 2018 U.S. midterms served as a modern Rorschach test-people saw whatever story served their purposes and credibly made cases of where they won, where they did not, and what it meant looking ahead for 2020. What is not up for debate, however, is that women made their indelible imprint on this election.

    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at S&P Dow Jones Indices (New York, NY) in March 2015.


    First they interviewed me on campus, and after a week or so I got invited to interview at their office. Two one-on-one interviews on campus and two interviews at their office. Asked me questions about my resume, what I learnt at statistics and investment analysis classes. Which class I liked best. Also asked me about the markets. I got a feeling that they didn't hire me because I did not have enough of a technical background for them.
