At the end of almost every interview, you will be asked if you have any questions. This is your opportunity to learn more about the job and the firm. By asking good questions, it is also a chance for you to open up the interview into more of a conversation.
However, even if you have little interest in the job, or if you’ve already had all of your questions answered by the other 8 people with whom you interviewed that day, you should always be prepared with 3-4 questions that you can ask an interviewer. Here’s a few examples:
– How long have you been with the bank and how has your experience been?
– What do you like best about working here. Worst?
– How do you compare working here with other banks at which you have worked?
– How is the dealflow?
– On what types of deals are you currently working?
– What kind of responsibility does the typical Analyst/Associate receive?
– Can you tell me about your training program?
– How do Analysts/Associates get staffed?
