Interviewing

Interviewing is a crucial part of our hiring process. As we get to know you better, you will get the chance to know the firm better, too. For those candidates who don’t have a lot of experience with interviewing, below are some ways to help you prepare.

The typical stages of a successful hiring process include: application review, domain-specific tests (coding, aptitude, etc.), case studies, phone and in-person interviews, references, and, finally, an offer. It’s possible your process may differ slightly.

Successful candidates tend to:

Where have you been?

  • We’re curious about what you’re working on and what motivates you
  • Be prepared to talk about your experiences, whether in research, work or internships, past projects, or something else all together
  • Come ready to talk about your personal contributions

How did you get there?

  • We like to see your thoughtful approaches to problem-solving
  • Feel free to take time to think before answering a question
  • Listen for hints if you get stuck
  • Getting to the right answer is great, but we also want to understand your thought process

Where do you want to go?

  • We’re interested in your desire to learn and tackle challenging projects
  • For our internships and entry-level roles, we don’t necessarily expect you to have any particular business or finance experience, though some roles will require an understanding of financial concepts
  • Demonstrations of curiosity and motivation matter to us
  • We encourage you to ask questions along the way
