This post isn't going to help you much. I don't understand lots of what you are asking. What is "UBS-W"? What does "having an assesment center" mean? And what does "I am also having dinner" mean?
Please ignore post, I have no idea what I am talking about.

hi sorry to be so vague before.... I am having a graduate interview with UBS Warburg and have been told that i have to attend an Assessment Center which comprises of a Case Study exercise and a Fact-Finding excercise. As i have never done these before i was hoping someone could give me some examples of the types of questions that come up. Also the night before I have been invited to attend a dinner with past graduates and members of UBS Warburg IT team....i was just wondering what to except. Thanx.
Vish: I would recommend UML Distilled or perhaps Schaum's UML text. A quick read of these should give you the basic idea of what is going to be asked. I personally have never been asked to do a UML diagram/use case/fact finding mission during an interview. From your comments - I guess you are to talk to a panel of people or read some text - and extract information regarding a problem domain. From your notes - you are to write a use-case. Kind of surprised you would be getting hit with UML interview for a job just out of college. Good luck and hang in there. Let us know how it goes. John Coxey (email@example.com)
1. Research ubs-w at the vault.com I like their message boards : http://www.vault.com/community/mb/mb_main.jsp?forum_id=6001 If you are a grad recruit make sure there are no defferals . 2. Dont get drunk during dinner ( its an excuse to see how you behave when you get drunk , but dont refuse a drink either ) 3. I am not sure what position you are applying for , but the case studies and group excercises - i am told are quite enjoyable and good . 4.Fact finding is more like a post-it excercise type of thing where you kind of do a pseudo use case and id the classes etc . 5. Brush up your tech presentation skills - coz they would give you a problem - say for instance an ATC or a bank teller excercise and ask you to find a pseudo solution along with your req gathering and present it to a group of IT - techie and semi techie hiring audience . 6. Group excercise might be a post-it uml type thing where they assess you on group behaviour , leader , follower etc . good luck - and again your selection process starts during dinner ( careful about those beers and wine , they keep coming ) ------------------ My ramblings @ http://javarecon.tripod.com
