Fidelity International

Interview Questions


"I was asked about my biggest achievement, my biggest strengths and weakness, why I wanted to work in investment management, why Fidelity, why a sales and marketing graduate scheme and what I thought about the future of the industry and market trends."
Graduate, London
"Why Fidelity? Why did you choose your graduate scheme? I was also asked standard competency questions."
HR, Graduate, London
"What's the biggest risk you've ever taken? Why are you interested in technology? Why Fidelity? Who is your role model?"
Graduate, Tonbridge
"The questions were motivational, situational and business-related."
Graduate, Vienna
"Questions are quite flexible, but mostly not too technical. Make sure you know why Fidelity, why investment management, why the role and why you. The most important thing is that the answers are genuine – you will be asked about your answers and the best way to ensure that this goes well is to give a genuine response."
Technology, Graduate, London


"General competency based questions. "Why Fidelity?", "Why Operations?". Nothing too much of a surprise."
Graduate, London
"I was asked why I wanted to work at Fidelity, times that I had shown leadership, instances where I had noticeably improved a process or business function."
Graduate, London
"I was asked about my background, what I had done previously, what I knew about Fidelity, why asset management, what were the main industry challenges, what are some of the key competencies within Fidelity and values and where I would see myself in five years' time."
Graduate, London
"The phone interview is more focused on 'Why do you want to work in asset management/at Fidelity?' than the assessment centre which is focused on the technical aspects of analysis. You will be asked to analyse a stock at the assessment centre."
Graduate, London
"I don´t remember any surprising questions. The assessors asked me about my previous job, about my personality and my way of working."
HR, Graduate, Kronberg, Germany
