    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fidelity Investments.

    Interview Details

    After applying online I was contacted by local HR to do a screening interview. It consisted of standard questions like "what do you know about financial services?" and "are you currently following the stock market?". Overall, relatively basic info to pass to the next phone interview. This one was more detailed, and they go over your resume fairly thoroughly.
