Vault Guide to Private Equity and Hedge Fund Interviews

Vault Guide to Private Equity and Hedge Fund Interviews was originally published on Vault.

The ‘Vault Guide to Private Equity and Hedge Fund Interviews’ is a new title covering all levels in the private equity and hedge fund recruiting interview space, including the junior, pre-MBA interviews which share the same checklists for the interviewing process.

Getting a position in hedge funds and private equity boils down to one question: Will you make money for the firm? The entire interview is devoted to determining that answer.

Not only that, candidates needs to make it past the headhunters who pre-judge them, answer technical finance and accounting questions about a field that they may have zero experience with, and even be tested on the spot by being asked to create an Excel model from scratch or presenting a case study.
