    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at State Bank of India (Jamshedpur) in February 2011.

    Interview

    It was a video interview since this was part of a campus hiring process. There were 4 to 5 people on the panel - all very senior members of the team. The process lasted for about 20-25 minutes. Was asked about which team (Debt / Equity) I would prefer to join, and my preference was offered to me. Was told that I was selected almost right after the interview.

    • Was asked about my college projects, some basic questions about valuations etc - was asked how would I do the valuation of my university. Thought I answered that well. The panel made me comfortable by keeping it a bit casual rather than intense.   1 Answer

    Only one interview was conducted. Panel consisted of two senior employees, one technical and other HR. The interview was of 20 minutes. I would suggest aspirants to prepare the basics of the electives they have taken in MBA. The interview was more or less centered around basic concepts of subjects like valuation, project finance, M&A and treasury. Interview went well and the panelists were good and polite.

    Interview

    More weightage is given to the background and less on the interview performance. Interviews are normally short. Confidence is the key

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Unfortunately i dint get to negotiate as it was a campus offer. But if the candidate has previous sectoral experience, he should negotiate for a higher designation.
