Telephone or video interview
The telephone or video interview will be your first opportunity to convey your enthusiasm, skills and motivations outside of a written statement or online test. The interview will be competency-based and focus on your CV and cover letter.
Ensure you can solidly evidence all your answers. The STAR method (Situation, Task, Action and Result) is a great framework to use in your preparation, so you can confidently convey that you meet the key criteria.
Importantly, remember to display the real you – Morgan Stanley values expressive and honest individuals. Avoid sounding too rehearsed and allow your genuine enthusiasm to come through.
The Morgan Stanley assessment centre is a half-day process. It will require you to complete a group exercise, which will assess your ability to show initiative under pressure and work well with colleagues.
Morgan Stanley has a collaborative culture, so ensure you use this task to display your leadership potential alongside effective team-working.
You will also be asked to deliver an individual presentation. You will be given a short brief, required to conduct research and then present your findings clearly and concisely. It is likely you will not be given the topic until the day, but you can prepare by honing your presentation skills on quick-fire topics with friends and family.
The assessment centre will also feature two further interviews. One will be skills-based to explore your experience and talents, and the other competency-based to assess how well you fit with Morgan Stanley’s values and key competencies. Ensure that you know these well, so you can illustrate how your behaviours align.
