HSBC Assessment Centre 2013 Graduate Program

#1

Hi everyone,

I have recently received an invitation to the Assessment Center for the analyst program - Global Asset Management. It would be much appreciated if any of you who have experienced or have knowledge of the AC could shed some light on it. Particularly, I am interested in knowing more about the business questions I would be asked and the case study.

Thanks!

Best

#9

hey mt313 - im sorry i don’t have an answer for that either, but i have a qn for u…how long did it take for them to tell you about the AC from the phone interview?

#10

2-weeks. Did you apply to the same program? All the best to you, let me know if you’re invited to the assessment centre. Till now I’m still waiting on a date for it

#11

congrats!!! all the best for it!! i applied to regional specialist development program and had a phone interview with them around 6 weeks ago; and haven’t heard back … i guess the chances of getting AC with them for me is really low then :frowning: - r u from hk? or do u need to fly over?

#12

Hi jessecue im from HK haha but right now I’m in the uk for uni so I’ll have to fly back for ac. I suggest you contact them directly because I didn’t get a reply for 2 weeks either so I emailed them and turns out they said they were unable to contact me

#13

who did u email?? the email for grads? i emailed them a month after my interview, but haven’t received a reply yet (cuz they told me will hear back from them in 2 weeks time whether im successful or not)…i heard assessment centre rounds should be around feb though…so like now?? (and pretty sure hsbc pays for ur flights and accommodation as well~) - anw all the best for ur AC!!!

#14

Hi all, I have an assessment centre for HSBC in London coming up on Feb 22nd (Global Banking and Markets - Technology Analyst - Global Analyst Induction Program). Can anyone offer some insight into the following:

  • What is the essential technical knowledge you need? (EPS, EBIT, EBIDA, discounted cash flow…etc)
  • For the case study, how did you structure your presentation? What is unsuccessful versus successful structure?

Thanks -

Rob

jessecue, how was the phone interview like for HSBC regional specialist dev prog? what type of questions would they ask? :slight_smile: Hope it went well for you and not all hope is lost!!

#16

hey hummingbird, did u get an interview for hsbc for the program too?
i’ll post the ans here so everyone else who stumbles across this thread can get an idea too :slight_smile:

the phone interview was really short, mainly behavioural qn like e.g. give me an example of a time when you worked in a team, why hsbc, why the program, what do you bring to the company etc…lasted only 20 min so pretty short~…hope this helps, good luck!!

#17

Thanks jessecue! yeah i did, for the risk division. Thanks for the info!

#18

Hi jessecue, I applied for HSBC Regional specialist dev prog as well- Finance Div. What about you? I had my tele interview on 8th feb and am still waiting for an update now. I guess ACs will be in march. My app status online just said ’ Telephone Interview Completed’. I hope they will give an update soon though, the whole process has been so so long!

#19

Hi guys!! I am wishing you all the best for your careers :slight_smile: !!
