    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.

    • 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.
