    Hey guys,

    so I had the phone interview yesterday, lasted 20-30 minutes or so.
    I think I did good, they asked the typical questions (strengths/weaknesses, why ubs, why this position, where do I see myself in 5 years (this one I was more hesitant though), describe a situation....., etc....)

    Now I have a 1 hour interview tomorrow in Zürich. I'm almost less stressed because on the phone, you can't tell what the person is thinking, when you're face to face it seems better IMO.

    What should I prepare for? what kind of questions will I get?

    this is the position btw:

    https://jobs.ubs.com/1033/asp/tg/cim_jobdetail.asp?SID=^5i_slp_rh c_VxCGmc3PuGp53d/6QQ1S/3N_slp_rhc_dF4LwZhHvDn8QHAxSvPw5 XYMRkM_slp_rhc_WNrahCzJ3&jobId=8 5930&type=search&JobReqLang=1&re cordstart=1&JobSiteId=5028&JobSi teInfo=85930_5028&GQId=886

    I wrote a 35 page report on the thing the team I'd be with would be working on. That could be why I get this internship if I do.

    Will they ask technical questions? On Finance, accounting, banking regulation?

    Are they like gonna give me a pencil and ask me to be a salesman and try to sell them the pencil?

    Do people take paper sheets with info on them?


    Any advice would be awesome!
