    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview. The interviewer asked a lot of technical questions, details about my resume, and the interviewer asked them at a quick pace. They were interested in knowing what books that I have read, and made sure that I followed the market. It was a fast paced interview, nothing too difficult besides being a quick thinker.

    Interview Details

    Their decision is based off 1 interview. I was told a decision was to be made 3 weeks after my interview (I was one of the earliest interviews behind another week of others). The interview was very relaxed and casual. Often during the interview the conversation would drift in another topic. If you list interests and hobbies, be prepared to elaborate on them. The interview lasted no more than 30 minutes.

    Interview Questions
    • 1. Tell me about yourself
      2. Could you explain your experiences with __________?

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Fidelity Investments.

    Interview Details

    They are really looking for consistency. I had four parts to complete in the AC which were a group exercise, a presentation (you get the topic 1 week prior to the AC), an interview, and a case study. One cannot really prepare for 1,2, and 4 but you really have to nail the presentation and know everything about what you are talking. I put in less effort and didnt get the job only because of that even though they told me that I outperformed the rest in 2 and 4 by far.
