4 – Future-related Questions
“Have you thought of your long-term plans? How are you sure that you’re going to be in IB for the long haul?”
– As an Analyst, you can admit that you are uncertain and unsure, but IB is what excites you and gets you going the most out of everything else. It also gives you the skills that you are looking for.
Tips: As a newbie, it’s okay to be unsure! Just assure the interviewer that this is where you want to be.
“What are your goals?”
– You probably want to achieve a high level of success in IB and (only if you really do) want to be part of this bank/team.
– Be honest.
Tips: Again, it’s expected of a starting analyst to be uncertain.
Overall, honesty trumps all! Remember to assur the interviewer of your want to continue in this bank.
