These are 3 keys to a successful interview:

  1. Know thyself — it is important to prepare lists of your strengths, weaknesses, hobbies, favorite subjects, and desired company culture beforehand!
  2. Become an expert — you should know all of the basics about the firm for which you are interviewing. Check out their website and understand the groups that exist within the company, the mission, company culture, and any major news relevant to the firm.
  3. Find a connection — put yourself ahead of the competition by reaching out to someone who works there beforehand. Ideally, this person would be a champion for you as you go through the interview process.

Q: What is the difference between equity and debt?
