    Interview Details

    Really competitive application process which is even hard when graduating from a top university and Masters degree. Positions are filled up rather quickly so apply as soon as possible when you start your last year. Summer Internship helps a lot between you second last year and last year.

    Interview Questions
    • If you think about the obvious questions like why citi etc. they will actually ask those kind of questions as well just to check if you are prepared.   Answer Question

    Sales and Trading Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Citi in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online with a cover letter, CV and psychometric tests in October.

    Invited to a first round interview in December and then final round assessment centre in January. In both cases heard outcome within an hour after interview via email.

    First round interviews were with VPs and almost entirely scripted, heavily competency based with very few technical questions.

    Final round interviews were with senior directors, they were supposed to be scripted but mainly just around your CV, again very few technical questions. In the assessment centre there was also a numeracy test check, case study and follow-up presentation exercise picking a global expansion opportunity for a business, and group exercise about methods to improve employee retention.

    IB Analyst Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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.
