It went well! I showed them the excel sample and case study and they seemed imprressed. I sent them thank you e-mails afterwards. They'll get back to me to see of I got the final interview this upcoming week. If I move on, it'll be 2-3 people vying for 1-2 spots.

That said, I've had interviews seem to go really well and still not get anything, so, I suppose we'll see. At least I did my best. : )

This just in: I was offered a second final interview w/ a boutique HNW financial advisory. So that's two 4-hour "Super Day's" to prepare for over the coming two weeks.

Congrats! What will happen on these "Super-days"? Do they test you on some things?

The Kobyashi Maru problem? Hazing rituals? Scientology "auditing" maybe? :lol:

Congratulations! Have you found out what the typical day / week is like in the NY job? Double in person interviews sounds like a test of your endurance.

Any update on the University opportunity?

Two final interviews done. I think they went really well. Now I wait to hear back for the next two weeks while catching up on school work!

Finished an interview with a third company today, first round. This one is with a really large bank headquartered in the state of NY. Very different from the size and culture of the other two. I think it went really well. Now wondering whether it's best to work in the city, suburbs, or somewhere in between, and what size company is best.

I think it's time to start asking your interviewers what their company and location offer that others don't.

Take this with a barrel of salt, because I have never been in your position. Still; it appears that you have a lot to offer, and you're unsure what's the best move. Time for potential employers to sell themselves to you?

Don't forget about the job responsibilities, growth opportunities, and overall work culture. ;) Which opportunity are you most excited about?
