From Our Community Experts

Financial services recruits earlier than any other industry. Most bulge bracket banks and large financial institutions hire interns a year in advance and will extend full-time offers to those summer analysts and associates who perform well. Because of this, it is important to start building your company target list and researching recruitment timelines now.  Vault’s Guide to Banking and Financial Services Jobs and Guide to the Top 50 Banking Employers are excellent resources to help in this process.

Below is a sample of companies who have recently hired International Business School students for finance roles. Many of these companies also have dedicated online resources for students that include application tips and timelines.

BlackRock BNP Paribas CITIC Securities Company
EY ForwardLane Goldman Sachs
HSBC JPMorgan Chase Moody’s Investors Services
State Street Corporation WeBank

Finance is a competitive field and the interview process will reflect that. Most firms use virtual interview platforms and online exams to screen candidates. If you are invited to formally interview, expect some mix of behavioral, technical and case interview questions. Firms will employ both traditional and unexpected questions to assess your quantitative and qualitative reasoning, as well as your ability to perform well under pressure. To prepare for all facets of the interview process, regularly meet with your Career Coach, join our Weekly Case Practice with Geri Brehm, and utilize the following CSE Resources: Vault Guide to Finance Interviews, CQ Interactive and BigInterview.
