    Eurazeo Interview Process & Questions

    Firms often make changes in their interview process with each candidate. But you can expect a few mechanics to stay the same such as:

    • Interview process typically consists of 4 to 6 rounds
    • Initial rounds are under the supervision of junior investment professionals or the HR team, while the later rounds are conducted by more senior staff
    • It could take several weeks before the firm select the right candidate (unless it’s “on-cycle” or “on-campus” recruiting)

    The interviews at Eurazeo will be a combination of fit questions, behavioral questions, and technical / investing questions.

    Why Eurazeo

    Interviewers almost always ask “why this firm” to candidates. This question reveals the candidates’ motivation for applying at the firm as well as their familiarity with the firm’s investment focus, strategy, and track record.

    If you’ve met employees at the firm, this is a great time to mention them, how they’ve made a really positive impression on you, and what insights you got from them about the firm.

    To help you come up with a more relevant and impressive answer, try learning more about the firm. One way you can do that is to listen to interviews with its founders, investors, and employees.

    Eurazeo Case Study

    Interviewees almost always have to perform a case study during interviews. Firms use case studies to evaluate each candidate’s technical knowledge and communication skills which are vital skills in the finance world.

    Most case studies at firms like Eurazeo involve investment recommendation and financial modeling. However, for junior roles, cold calling case studies are often required as well.
