    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley.

    Interview

    After a call from the HR, I went for my first interview in their office with a VP. Most questions were asked based on my relevant experience. The second round was with an associate and the questions are both technical and general such as talking about your experience working as a leader or as a team member. Two more interviews and I talked about my experience and my understanding of the role. Eventually I didn't get the job due to lack of experience for that position.
