    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hang Seng Bank.

    Interview

    I have submitted CV and cover letter to them. Afterwards I received a group interview, the group interview splited into 3 parts. While interview is conducted in Cantonese. They have no interest in your English proficiency. First of all, a brief introduction of yourself, just saying your name, university, reason for taking gap year and do a placement intern and anything that you think it may interest the interviewers. Then you will have a discussion concerning a current news of Hong Kong. Mine is regarding the landfill problem which is quite a hot topic at that time. No information set will be provided. Given 10 minutes of preparation, we discuss for like 15-20 minutes. We then have a short summary for each of us taking about the good and bad things that we did in the discussion, just a brief reflection. I was invited to stay behind after the discussion. The HR staff asked me whether I will be interested in back office role, I get an offer in a back office specialist department.
