Interview

I gave my interview on Monday and i was shocked with the process of interview as i was not asked any question related to the finance profile. No technical round. Just one presention and that too was related to customer service. It was more like a formality rather than an interview.

Interview Questions
  • Prepare for customer service rather than finance. Very shocking interview and nothing related to technical skills used for financial analyst profile. Complete wastage of time.
