I recently entered the work force and since being a couple times on the other side of the phone I've come to appreciate the serious difficulties of trying to get a meaningful signal from a 1 hour interview. To be more specific I'm talking about quant research/trading roles.

It is clearly a team effort and should be a function of the candidate experience and skills. Within my group some people ask about phd/postdoc research in detail, some ask math/algo puzzles, some ask about past projects and of course some combinations of these topics. All these areas should be explored but when it's up to me to structure the interview (i've shadowed and lead also) I'm at a loss of what to focus on and I feel my learning process on how to improve is quite slow. Culture is very important in our firm (probably everyone says that :P) and this seems to be even harder to asses than technical skill.

Does anyone have some insights to share with a newbie?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Surely "Culture" is mostly gut feel?
