Answer 1: I am the guy with less luck and more enthusiasm towards anything and everything that comes to me.

Question 3: Describe your all technical interviews specifying number of rounds and details of each round (if any).

Answer: Since there was no technical round, so I’d like to discuss about the workshop. The MOST IMPORTANT arena to impress the interviewers. Stay active and interactive during the workshop. Show them your keen interest in finance. A little knowledge about basics of financial accounting is an advantage. Keep interacting with the interviewers even in the breaks. Quiz round – 15 MCQs based upon what they have taught during the workshop ( 30 minutes ) Case study Round : case study based on financial statements ( 40 minutes )

Question 4: Describe your all HR interviews specifying number of rounds and details of each round.

Answer: I was lucky enough to go through only one round of interview. Interview duration : 30 minutes/ Both the interviewers were calm and cool. They discussed everything whatever it was written on my resume. ( Make sure you have the justification for all what is mentioned in your resume ) They asked about what I have done in college, my family background, why not correct companies? , Why finance ?, Any course/ activity That I have done in the field of finance. They even asked GUESSTIMATES, PUZZLES and about the SHARE MARKET. Ask a relevant and an interesting question when they ask ‘ if you have any questions for them’ I asked about how are they going to change my engineering mind to a finance mind.



Question 5: What do you think were key factors for your selection?

Answer: Confidence, calmness, positive attitude and basic knowledge of finance.
