Interviews and Communications

As in any industry, the key to successful interviews in finance is preparation. There are multiple stages to the process: first round interviews will likely occur via webcam and will be followed by on-campus interviews and finally in-office interviews. At each stage, employers may ask students a variety of questions, both behavioral and technical. Questions in each category must be appropriately anticipated by students. If you have a Notre Dame NetID, you may access a comprehensive set of Interview Guides to prepare for such questions in this Google Folder.
