Finance students participate in simulated superday experience

Students gained authentic interview experience and insight into what to expect during interviews with financial firms.

Martha and Spencer Love School of Business students experienced a mock superday on Sept. 26 through a career event organized by the William Garrard Reed Finance Center and Student Professional Development Center.

About a dozen finance majors participated in interviews with members of the Elon Parents Council who have experience within finance and the financial services industry and finance professors Kate Upton, Adam Aiken, Margarita Kaprielyan and Chris Harris. In superday fashion, each student had consecutive interviews of various styles – traditional, behavioral and technical.

Elon’s Finance Mock Super Day simulates the back-to-back interviews that students often undergo during the final round of the recruitment process for internship and entry-level opportunities within the finance industry. The professional development event gives students insight into what to expect during a superday as well as feedback on their interview skills.

I really enjoyed the Finance Mock Super Day and found it extremely beneficial. I walked away with more confidence in my interviewing skills as well as great advice about areas where I can improve. I highly recommend this event to any student pursuing a career in finance.
