Summer internship - recruitment process

Anonymous asked on Jul 31, 2017 - 2 answers

Hi! I will apply for summer internship positions in MBB. I would like to clarify two doubts:

1) In which language are the interviews? For instance, in Portugal, are the interviews in english or in portuguese?

2) What is the difference between the recruitment process for a summer internship vs full position? Is the former easier?

Thanks in advance!

1) I would expect the interviews to be in both languages and the interviewers will split

2) For internship most probably you will have 4 interviews instead of 6. Depending on the office I would expect the directors not to participate in the internship interviews. Interviews itself though are the same.

On the other hand, it's harder to differentiate among the other candidates since most candidates will have similar backgrounds.

Do these factors make internship interviews easier? I would say they do, but not significantly.
