    IB Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  London, England
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Citi in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, followed up with cold calling and a phone pitch. Did three phone interviews that were mostly technical and IB related. The big surprise was in the AC- No technical questions but you get stretched with the business case and the other activities. Time management is key and you get evaluated against people with you in the AC.
