Taking interview preparation for FS professionals to a whole new level…

95% of financial services professionals we spoke with did better (and felt better!) at interview because they prepared the Barden Way. The other 5% were just naturals!

Prepare properly for an interview and you will perform better at interview. Fact.

Perform better at interview and you will have a better chance of getting offered the job you want. Fact.

Interviews for financial services roles are just different. Yes you need to know how to answer competency-based questions; yes you need to know what the company does and; yes you need to have some questions prepared. That’s the vanilla stuff. But as a financial services professional you also need to know:

  • What examples are best for financial services STAR/competency based answers?
  • What should I research and how much should I research before the interview?
  • What should I look out for on the website / financial services news from sources like Bloomberg or Reuters?
  • How do I speak about my experience to make sure the Director/Manager sees the relevance?
  • How do I make sure that I don’t bore the HR person with too much detail?
  • What specific technical or analytical elements are relevant to this company/industry? How do I figure that out?
  • What jurisdictions does this role work with and what are some of the key nuances to look out for?

….and these are only some of the things you need to know and at Barden we will help you prepare for.
