Fragen aus Vorstellungsgesprächen für quantitative research associate, von Bewerbern geteilt
Warum wollen Sie diese Stelle antreten, wenn Ihnen auch andere Optionen offen stehen?
Avoid giving a wishy-washy, false response here. Especially if you're talking to a current employee. Be frank about your motivations, even if this isn't advised by many. Saying something like: "I've always dreamed about working in investment banking, since I was a child" is a patent lie. Why should somebody want to work with you, if you'd so obviously insult their intelligence like this? Also, don't say: "I want to earn lots of money", but saying something like "earning money is something that drives me, and is something I constantly think about" isn't necessarily bad, and certainly isn't too far from the type of person they're looking for.
