Hi

does anyone else have an AC for global markets origination next week? If yes, how do you guys prepare?

What does "a business-related case study discussion" refer to? I dont think I have had something like this before?

any advice would be appreciated...I'll reciprocate after my AC experience :))

thanks and good luck to all!

Hey guys, I am a Singaporean and I applied for the 2012 Summer internship in Global Banking-Advisory-Hong Kong. I attended 2 30-min phone interview with 2 associates from the Global Banking side on 10 Jan 2012. But till now, there is no reply from them except for routine fortnightly mails from the UK side that my application is still under review. May I know if anyone also applied for this position and if you have received any updates on the selection process? I am beginning to feel that my chances are slim.... Thanks.

Hey tsezar,

Apologies for the delayed response. Please do personal message me next time as I should be able to get back to you quicker. I feel that srifoukette has really covered everything that they could possibly ask you. I didn't get asked q3 on srifoukette's list, so I imagine they may allow you to flesh out certain answers and if you cover another point they are looking for within that answer they will probably not ask what they initially intended.

Hope all went well!!

Your AC might be similar to the Client Management one I had..

Case Study - This was on emerging markets, BRIC economies, trade between these economies.. make sure to include figures and a relevant argument to back up your reasons behind investing or not. It's basically advising a client what to invest in.

Business Interview - About what you would do in the client management role

Business interview 2 and motivational interview - basically the same, competency.

Just know the role, hsbc itself, its competitors, how it can survive in the market, read up on current market news and make an opinion.

That's mainly it, good luck!

Dear Jenny Smith,

I have my telephone interview tomorrow for Global Markets with HSBC could you please tell me what were the questions they asked you on your interview?

Dear Peterpan and Hazelground

I hope you are well. I have been invited to an AC for Global Markets with HSBC and would very much appreciate your insight into how the day went. I'm keen to know more about the business related case study and how technical the interviews were. In terms of the case study, what subject was it on, what kind of questions were asked, etc. I have found very little information on the internet regarding their AC, so any help would be most greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Jenny
