Hi, at an interview for an MBB internship one year ago i was asked. "why this firm?".
One of my reasons that i mentioned was that the boss in my previous internship had worked at the firm and i that I had a long discussion with my boss about the firm and that he told me about the great culture etc. As a reaction, the interviewer challenged me by saying. "Hmmm. okay, so you know that one person was happy at our firm. but that's a pretty small sample size, right?". Do you think he honestly thought that it is not enough just having to talked to one person? Or do you think it sounds rather like a stress test? I mentioned this reason it alongside with other reasons about the firm like their experience, sectors, etc.
Thanks in advance!
