    No I haven't... they said 2-3 weeks anyway. How did you find it?
    Standard stuff. Think it went quite well, but only time will tell whether it actually did.

    Which session were you in? Morning or afternoon?

    I think they are talking about how you would raise finance for running a garden centre in London.. and maybe you could refer to the current credit crunch and what it means for smaller businesses... but what is this for?

    hey,
    ok what you need to look at is the current market conditions and the fact that there is a lot less liquidity out there.

    depending on their cash flows they may find it hard to raise finance for their daily costs etc. and as a result they cant buy stock, pay employees etc.
    now you want to explain why they cant do this. for this you need to explore things like banks are not taking on as much risk now with lending money. you need to throw in there that the BoE, although lowering interest rates to try to encourage banks to lend to small firms etc, will not be able to control things on through monetary policy as easy. and you could bring up a discussion like although in theory it will work, technically it wont because banks are watching their credit risk.

    credit risk is the risk of the counterparty (i.e. the small business) defaulting (going bankrupt) and the way that banks look at the probability of this is through cash flows, investment/debt ratios, debt quality etc.

    also the people who run SEO are not just regular HR, they are smart people who used to work for BB, so i would expect that they expect yo hear some pertty technical stuff. and with the credit crunch, i think that you can talk for ver about loans and interest rates. but hope that helps.x

    thats alrite man dont worry....keep your hopes high..they still hav another AC..hope you get into that one!

    and abt the interview divya also mailed me a list of possible questions that they might ask....its long list.....but the problem is most of the technical questions are based on Java, i have nevr done java....ive only done C++....so im stuck with a big problem!!!!! :confused:

    well i was concentrating on gettin more right, rather than getting more done...so i think i might have done 1 or 2 wrong...but im sure most of them were right!!!....cuz to be honest...i was skipping all the harder ones and did all the easier oness....


    well anyways gud luck again mate!
