Interview: Tips & Advice

2018

"I was able to find common interests with one of my interviewers, which helped me to relax and be myself. My advice to future interns is: don't worry, just be yourself!"
Intern, London
"I had to submit a virtual cover letter that had very straightforward questions about the company and the division. Afterwards, I had two rounds with different people consisting mainly of behavioural questions as it's a client-facing business."
Intern, Zurich
"Be ready whenever they invite you for an interview to take the chance to present yourself in person."
Intern, Frankfurt
"It's a four-step process. There's an online application, a video application through HireVue, two telephone interviews of thirty minutes each and finally an assessment centre in London where you have two thirty-minute interviews and work on a group project."
Intern, London (City of London)
"The initial online cover letter was very straightforward. This was followed by online interviews as well as an assessment centre. During the assessment centre, I completed a group exercise as well as a case study, which did not require any important prior knowledge or preparation."
Intern, London
"The process was longer than I expected. Two pieces of advice I would give to new applicants are: be aware of what is happening in the world and be yourself as the firm is looking for people who are able to challenge their status quo every day."
Intern, Milan
"Try to use keywords such as fiduciary, diversity and client-focused in context when possible."
Intern, London
"I would advise people to get information about the firm, about the team they are applying to, and about the activities, stakes and challenges of the team. Finally, be clear on why they would fit with both the firm and the specific team they are applying to."
