Finance Interview Preparation

  4. Finance Interview Polish
    Marquee can provide one-on-one sessions to allow students to ask last minute questions and build confidence prior to interviews. After doing extensive preparation, students often have outstanding issues they want to discuss and clarify in advance of their interviews.
