I'm preparing for a quant interview and want some more practice problems. Is there a way to find a lot of them easily on this website?

  • $\begingroup$ Maybe there is something on Cross Validated the site about statistics. $\endgroup$

You might be better off trying Quantitative Finance Stack Exchange. Quantitative finance questions are often not well received on this site.

  • $\begingroup$ I'm interviewing for entry level positions. The questions are not specific to finance at all, and mainly are just brain-teasers, probability/counting, and strategy style questions $\endgroup$ Apr 29 '20 at 19:00

    $\begingroup$ @Goldname I actually have a quant finance job. The interview questions were mostly probability theory and stochastic calculus, but finance knowledge was expected. Coming from a pure math PhD, nobody wanted me due to the lack of that knowledge. I ended up getting a programming job at a financial company, excelled, then applied for a quant finance job at the same company. Observing my colleagues interview others, I wouldn't have gotten the job applying directly. $\endgroup$ Apr 29 '20 at 19:07
  • $\begingroup$ Which company are you at? Jane Street and HRT explicitly said no financial knowledge was required $\endgroup$ Apr 29 '20 at 20:37

    $\begingroup$ @Goldname Jane Street usually sends some materials beforehand if you get an interview. The questions tend to be probability/combo and phrased as games. Try looking at glassdoor and maybe searching some of the questions to see if they've been asked here. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @AlexanderGruber The material they send is not related to quant finance except for one terminology section. I've looked through glassdoor, but it's a bit lacking and they didn't post the solutions $\endgroup$ Apr 29 '20 at 23:23
  • $\begingroup$ @Gold Alexander is saying find the problems there, find the solutions here. $\endgroup$ Apr 29 '20 at 23:24
