Interview Process
Technical Interview
Round 1

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Solve Monty Hall problem using Bayesian probability.
Interview Experience
A CGPA above 8 would be useful to get shortlisted for an interview, but may notbe necessary. A well-written and edited customized resume helps a lot. It must necessarily reflect an interest and basic knowledge of finance.Interview: HR, finance, tech and math questions are all usually rolled into one round of interview.
Interview Tips
A good understanding of probability and/or statistics and knowledge about currents affairs and trends in the financial world would be to your benefit.A tight grasp of math (quant, especially probability) is required for finance profile. Math Puzzles with variations on the standard ones can be asked.
Resources

  • Accounting,
  • Mathematics,
  • Economics Management,

General Tips
Preparing for CAT would suffice for general practice of quant questions. Do not focus too much on one thing. Selection is usually random. Put fight for math/puzzles and you can score in banks/finance jobs. Finance questions are to test the thought process and not knowledge in finance as such. Probability parts would be covered in finance questions itself. Solve as many brain teasers and probability puzzles you can, you can find enough on the FTP server. Try to balance what you know and be alert.
