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. Refer to Notre Dame Undergraduate Career Services for help with interview preparation and with constructing your professional documents.
