Let us discuss some of the common but very effective banking interview questions. The interviewer may typically begin with tell me about yourself. It is a common opener which is meant to set the ball rolling for the next few minutes ahead. Even though this is the common question which will be asked in most of the interviews you can score brownie points by answering the question a bit differently, but at the same time not deviating much from the context. Other commonly asked banking interview questions include: General Questions Why did you choose banking as your profession? Do you have any previous experience? Why you left your previous job? Why do you want to work for us? How long will you stay with us? Where you see yourself in another five years? Finance related banking interview questions If you could buy one stock today, what would it be and why? Can you explain the effect of rising interest rates on the United States economy? What are the main issues ABC Company has to face before entering a given industry (Porter framework)? Explain the techniques you use to value firms?

What do you mean by cost of capital? When do you use a WACC versus a cost of equity? Behavioral Questions Do you think you have leadership quality? Can you explain when did you show leadership? Have you think you can perform well in a group? What is your most noted accomplishment? What are your positive traits or strengths? What are your negative traits or weaknesses? What you can do for the company others people cant? Explain an example when you had a personal conflict and how you resolved it? Tell a time when you had an ethical dilemma and how you resolved it. What type of person do you find difficult to get along with? The above mentioned are some of the common questions that are used by most of the banking interviewers. Remember that for a banking job interviewer, there cannot be a dearth for questions. So be well prepared before attending the interview and answer all questions in a positive way. Remember if you have the material they are looking for, youll get it.

What is the best way to introduce myself?

Whatever you are you only know so describe yourself in better way as you can...little bit fake about past schooling competition but be aware about investigation ok!No one is here to investigate your past..but u must better to know that person sitting in front of you is not a better be realistic to a great level! Speak so much about yourself as interviewer must think that at the age of 25 yrs (eg.) he has seen number of thing about his life...This question is maximum ask to check how much u know yourself till today..on behalf of that only they will decide how can you represent yourself on behalf of your company!!
