Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at HSBC Holdings in November 2012.

Interview Details

Applied online, the first round was phone interview with HR from London HQ and was therefore conducted in English.
The questions were pretty standard although the "World in 2050" topic seems to be important to them:

-Why Trading?
-Why HSBC?
-What will the global economy be like in 2050?
-Which economies (countries) will be the strongest economically? Why?
And how does it impact HSBC?
-Talk me through a recent news story which has interested you and tell me how it impacts HSBC
-What are HSBC’s values? How have these values helped HSBC through the crises?
-What is your greatest strength and which area will you need to work on when working in trading?
-Where do you see yourself in 5 years’ time?
-Who is your role model in the financial industry (it can be someone you know personally or a public figure)?
-What skills are important to be successful in Trading/Global Markets?
