    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at D. E. Shaw & Co. - Investment Firm (New York, NY (US)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Pleasant. Recruiter was very friendly. I sort of bombed it, didn’t do enough research and got stuck on a resume specific question. Don’t think I would’ve been a good fit anyway.
