I have a risk/valuation analyst interview next week. I do not have much interview experience in this field. I am just wondering besides the basic education/work experience questions, what other questions should I pay attention before the first round interview. Will I be likely asked any detailed and technical questions?
I think that really depends on the level of analyst position you are after… is it a junior role and is it with Risk Management? If so, than probably not much on the technical and more on the work ethic and attention to detail. If a more senior role or in the FO, than you can be sure they’ll want to know the extent of your abilities.
My role is to provide middle and back office accounting and valuation services for hedge funds and investment management industry. I had no experience in this role. Can anyone give me some detail on the daily duties for this position? That would help me out greatly.
Didn’t they provide you a job description when you applied online ? What is the title and who is it with ?
