Sample Questions:

  • Have you seen any new employment trends in the industry recently?
  • Will there be opportunities in any new / non-traditional areas of finance?
  • Which specializations are hot now and will be hot over the next few years?
  • What can candidates with less experience (0-5 years) do to get their resume in front of the hiring manager?
  • What do companies look for in younger / less experienced candidates?
  • Are there any hints you could give younger applicants?
  • Are there any hints you could give people trying to transition into finance after working in another industry?
