The written tests consists of four parts: brain teaser, calculus and probabilities, finance theories(focus on BS model and fixed income concepts), coding skills. Each part consists of 10 problems and you have 2 hours to complete all four parts. After completing the first part, all the participants got a face to face interview from a senior staff. This part will basically focus on your past experience on your resume and some related behavior questions. After the second round, HR contacted me the next day and also assigned our role according to our background and intern performance.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CITIC Securities (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Phone interview screening with HR is literally to see if you want to be submitted to the team. Once the team approves, they setup the in office interview. You have to meet with pretty much half the team at the very least as well as a few people from related teams. I interviewed with 12-13 people total for 20 mins each over a span of 1 days. They seem to ask the same questions and then at the end of the process they decide if you are going to be easy to work with yet know your stuff and get stuff done.
