    For two companies now, I've had asynchronous video interviews where the questions they ask you seem vague as hell with regards to whether they expect a specific example from your life. They don't tell you that they expect specific examples or tell you it's a STAR interview like some companies do, they ask you wide open questions like "Do you think that following rules as an electrical engineer is important?"Are you meant to talk so they can judge your communication and BSing skills, or do they genuinely want a specific example?They're asynchronous video interviews, so you don't have anyone to ask straight after you hear the questions. I've had two like these, (one yesterday and the other previously), and also another video interview where they were more transparent in what they expected.

    just relate it back to investment banking and how your skills and your knowledge align. spin spin spin like a yoyo, it's your job to give a good answer
