Institutional Analyst at Morgan Stanley

Before going into the interview, email your school's alumni recruiters--they will help you. In any case, have an investment idea, know where are the prices of gold, oil, the 10-year bond and the equity market indices. Read the news.

Former Intern at Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management

The interview process for Morgan Stanley was very informal and laid back. They want to just know more about you, what motivates you and why you are interested in interning there. Once you get going its just like having a normal conversation, they don’t expect you to know much, that is why you are an intern. My best advice is don’t act like you know something you don’t, if you say you know a certain topic be able to back it up with facts. I would also do some research on the company to show you have a real interest in the position. Read up on current events in the company, look into their mission and values, and be able to explain why you would be a good fit. Also, follow up after your interview so they know you are genuinely interested. Lastly, be sure to have questions prepared for the interviewer.

They will ask you about current events in the markets and about your application essay (if applicable). They may also ask you to pitch a stock. Just have well-supported opinions and don't be afraid to admit if you don't know something.

Former Human Resources Summer Analyst at Morgan Stanley

To prepare for the summer, I would recommend having a good grasp of how an Investment Bank works, and the current state of the firm you’re interested in (financials, stock price, recent news, etc.) HR provides the greatest value when it is in sync with and understands business objectives.

Show that you are passionate about financial markets and helping people. Be prepared for a basic skills exam that will test your technical, business, and writing skills. Know your resume top to bottom, but don’t rattle off your bullet points. You want to walk in and tell the story of who you are and why your story makes you uniquely positioned for success in the role over others. Do your research on the team you’re interviewing with. Go in armed with questions and of course, practice practice practice!
