    International Graduate Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Standard Chartered Bank in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process is listed in details in their website. The first step is an online aptitude test. Don't lie in personality test, because they will know for sure in the next steps

    The second round is an interview with HR. Very detailed. Know your resume well. No surprising questions, but they asked very tiny details of the experience, so be prepared! After 15 mins of introduction, there are only 3 main questions, but again, they ask every details, even some that I thought weren't relevant. I think they wanted to make sure I didn't make up the story. Some notes for this step: don't be nervous. I screwed one question because I already used my good example in the previous question, but I still got through the next round. I think the importance is to show them you have the ability to fit in, even when you have limited experience.

    Had to wait for almost 3 weeks to get an invitation for the next round. The first step is an online case study. Nothing technical so don't spend hours to learn some stuff like I did :(. Second step is a Business Discussion about their annual reports, and last step is a presentation.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Standard Chartered Bank in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    The date of interview was provided from the personal consultant of standard chartered which was one to one discussion wherein they would like to know your skills, interest in details and whether you are fit for the job title or not, after analyzing the eligibility I was sent in a group discussion round to check the team spirit quality followed by another discussion round and one to one by the senior most HR.
    I like the various ways of the staff to analyze during interview and to be more precise what they were looking for in a candidate during screening
    Their were few candidates who had master degrees too but lack of confidence and skills who were eventually rejected, as the company was looking for practically upcoming business developer.
