FMP Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Toronto, ON

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at GE in February 2014.

Interview Details I applied through campus and was contacted about 3 weeks after the deadline. The interview was to be behavioral and last about 45 minutes. The interviewer took time to get t know me before diving into the interview questions. Indeed it was strictly behavioral, so I recommend coming in with a list of relevant experiences and only choosing at the time what to say. Also, come in with questions ready for the, and go beyond silly questions that their website can answer.
