i was wondering if anyone could give me some direction regarding an interview i've got coming up, it's working on a trading app and i've no experience with that, and there is training provided but i was wondering what sorts of technical questions could come up? i'v been working mainly thus far in jboss and with ejb's & persistence, so wondering what to brush up on really, like multi-threading? swing? any resources i should look into?
Look at the job spec or ask the employer/recruitment agent as in what technologies/skills are required so that you can prepare. It is hard to say anything without the job spec.
-- Brush up your Java/JEE fundamentals and Web fundamentals. -- Finance organizations generally do have integration technologies so brushing up on JMS, WebServices etc can be handy. -- Brush up on some trading terms like Derivative Produts, ETF (Exchange Traded Funds) etc. -- Do a bit of reaserach about the company and why you would like to work there. -- Non technical (i.e. interpersonal) questions like Where you would like to be in 3 years time etc. -- Situation-Action-Results (SAR) type of answers to demonstarte your soft skills. E.g. Tell me a time where you handled a challenging situation etc.
Good luck. [ April 15, 2008: Message edited by: arulk pillai ]
