MFin Career Question of the Week: How do I prepare for a quant interview?

How do I prepare for a quant interview?

You can find many MFin interview resources on Your CDO that are categorized by role and question-type. To help you get started, keep the following in mind:

  • Quantitative finance is an umbrella term for a number of subfields, as explained in this article. Make sure you research and practice interview questions related to the specific role, employer, and industry.
  • Interviewers are also interested in your thought process, not just the answer to their question. Practice delivering your solution approaches verbally.
  • Don’t underestimate the importance of general and behavioral questions. The quality of your answers impacts hiring decisions.
