    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (New York, NY (US)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    On-campus recruiting. After applying, was contacted by an alum to set up first round phone interview. It was around 10 minutes fit questions like walk me through resume, why IB, why Barclays etc. and then around 10 minutes of the usual technicals (3 financial statements, DCF etc.). 2nd round phone screen was the same. Didn't progress from there.
