I've got an interview next week at one of the big banks for a financial analyst position, which I am very excited about! However, I graduated almost a year ago, and I'm afraid I might be a little rusty on the financial theory and modeling techniques. I've got some pretty good analytical work experience, but not really focused on financial modeling. One of my internships focused directly on commercial lending, so I have been exposed to things directly related to this position.

I started reading the Vault Guide to Finance Interviews, but it seems to focus more on Investment Banking. Does anyone know what type of questions they may ask for a commercial banking financial analyst position? During the phone interview they asked about financial statements, EBITDA and the Free Cash Flow Method, but other than those, I'm not really sure how much more complicated the questions can be.

Anyone have any tips or any recommendations on what I should review?

Thanks.

I'm 99% sure that they're considering you for is their INTERNAL training program...
that in time will have you prepared to be what they choose to interpret "financial analyst" to be.

For *this*... they want industry virgins, who present well and who have a good handle on the vocabulary.
Not much else would or should be expected of a new hire.

Your job at this interview is to show yourself to be someone worth investing in... to give that training to.

You work hard. You're a team player and work well with others. You learn quickly. You learn from your mistakes and don't repeat them. You are dependable and will meet your commitments. That's what recruiters want to hear from their potential trainees.
