Hey guys im a 3rd year finance student in Melbourne and I have been trying to drum up some summer work.
My main interest is in securities analysis and I have focused on applying to mid size companies that generally don't have a work experience programs (ie. NOT investment banks) that have equity research departments.
Anyway so after a few weeks of emailing analysts and calling them up in the wee hours I have two interviews this week, one tomorrow with a smaller business and one on Friday with Wilson HTM.
I am absolutely stoked to get an opportunity to learn at a firm like Wilson HTM, and as i am the only student (from the sounds of it) to apply for work experience over the summer I hold a good chance of them giving me the ok on friday.
What im asking for help with here, is what sort of questions do you think they will ask me in the interview? I am being interviewed not by HR but by two head analysts. They have a project for me to work on which will be of value to their firm, so they will probably want to establish that I have some basics down in the world of finance and they wont have to baby me. No idea yet what this project is however.
I will prepare for the interview by reading some Wilson HTM equity reports, looking at what fundamentals they seem to focus on and having a good grasp of their general analysis.
Any other pointers would be appreciated!
