    I was recruited through the campus career center. A few days after submitting my resume and cover letter, I was contacted via email to set up a phone interview about why I am interested in the position. After the phone interview I was asked to come to to NY office for a full interview in the next few days.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Citi in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    phone interview + superday. Some interviewers were obviously unprofessional (e.g. called me at the airport and had to hang out at security) but others were friendly and down-to-earth. Key is to find the right team and people for you. This might not be obvious in the beginning but 2-3 months into the job you will see what I mean
