        They were looking for people who would be interested in working in Analytics. In addition they give importance to college CGs. Quantitative skills are especially important as the role demands it,.

        The comfort level was high in the interview. Also being able to solve the problem helped.
        Interview Tips
        Preparation on the standard interview questions as the HR plays a major role in selection

        • Quantitative Aptitude
        • Analytical Skills
        • Probability
        General Tips
        If interested in Amex, do not explicitly mention marketing or finance as your interest as analytics is considered an independent field. The role does not require any specific finance or marketing related knowledge. Express interest in quant, stat, puzzles etc. Marketing jargons or NPV, Derivatives etc should ideally be kept out of the conversation.

        Though I was not asked any problems on probability etc. But know that they generally ask such problems. So, it is better to do some practice so that you are not rusty during the interview attempting those.
