    Are all these due dates in November?

    Also, since they don't have OCR for Asia pacific offices, is the only way to interview by filling out apps online?

  • moosturdsoed's picture

    Also, just to note for other applications, there is only ONE test for HSBC hk. I haven't submitted all of my applications yet, so I'm going to wait and see before posting further. Also, would it be worth it to add CICC to the list? Their application is online as well.

  • moosturdsoed's picture

    were you rejected from BAML because of the online test?

  • wsib1's picture

    Hey Guys,

    For JPM, in the job listing there are jobs which say HongKong/US/UK/Singapore Bachelors.. DOes it mean students from the US can apply apply to those which says US bachelors?

  • moosturdsoed's picture

    @wsib1

    yes, i believe that's the case

  • wsib1's picture

    is it essential to apply as early as possible for banks which says rolling basis?

    I really don have time to apply now for those with due dates on 12/31 until winter break.. if i apply right before deadline am i totally screwed?

  • yxyxyx's picture

    how good are you guys all in Chinese (writing & speaking)? is it strictly required? I know it says its recommended..

  • ibhopeful532's picture

    ^

    Nowadays, oral fluency is essentially a must, and reading is prolly more important than writing. You won't be drafting memos in Chinese - however, you will need to proofread what the translation team gives you, and you will need to be able to read reports, 10ks. in Chinese.

  • Opi's picture

    if BBs don't do OCR at your school (in the U.S.) for HK positions, do you just have to apply online?

    do they read online apps, or is it a blackhole just like applying online in the U.S.? Any insight would be appreciated; i'm fluent in Chinese and definitely interested in HK, but am not really sure how to apply.

  • wsib1's picture

    how do they usually contact you for interviews? phone or email?

  • wsib1's picture

    does anyone know the exact deadline for DB HK?

  • ubiomni's picture

    haha. got my CS rejection letter about a week ago. so if u havent heard anything yet, keep ur finger crossed.

  • ibhopeful532's picture

    Apply online, it helps if you're from a target, but with that said, with the right background you'll still get an interview.

    You get emailed if you're selected for interview.

    @hkstudent

    sorry about the rejection. anyone else hearing any news? it looks like most of the deadlines are passing in just a few days. i've got almost everything in, but haven't heard about interviews yet.

  • 1superday2011's picture

    Heard some ppl got UBS already. Anyone else got?

  • lydia90517's picture

    heard some got phone interview for ms sa. but so far i've nothing: no rejections no invites
    applied to ms, gs, cs, db, ubs, baml

  • wsib1's picture
  • 1superday2011's picture

    I think deadline is really soon. 10 DEC?

  • wsib1's picture

    ^how do you know? the site doesnt say the exact date.

  • moosturdsoed's picture

    I got an official email from DB one week ago saying the deadline was 12/5

  • 1superday2011's picture

    I think DB deadline is over, expect emails next week.

    JPM has already given email. I have not received mine yet.. Still hoping to get.

  • 1superday2011's picture

    CITI is starting to send out invitations for first round.

  • moosturdsoed's picture

    yeah mine (the one that said 12/5 for the deadline) was for US-based applicants. in either case, i'd get the application in ASAP if you haven't submitted

  • wsib1's picture

    im us based, so i guess i missed it, im just too last minute

    for rbs, it says 12/31 is that for everyone or is there an earlier deadline for us based?

  • wsib1's picture

    Analyst Training Program applications close for students studying at schools in Hong Kong, Mainland China, US, Canada and the UK -december

    i saw this on db site.. if deadline for hk is 12/31, does it mean that for us students is also 12/31?

  • moosturdsoed's picture

    not to be a dick, but i think you're wasting your time trying to figure out when the deadline is--it really can't hurt to just submit the application now. plus, as i understand it, the earlier you submit the better anyways. an application submitted 5 minutes before the deadline is going to look worse than one submitted 5 days before the deadline. just something to think about.

  • wsib1's picture

    i know, but this week is my finals week, and it doesn't take 5 minutes to submit a good appl

  • 1superday2011's picture

    one my friend already has his JPM SA interview for Singapore.

  • 1superday2011's picture

    anyone else knows JPM SA for HK?

    still waiting on all the other banks. hopefully can get a few interviews.

    gl with everyone else who is waiting and those who got first founds!

  • 1superday2011's picture

    anyone heard from Citi yet?

  • steeeve's picture

    Got MS HK 1st round a few days ago, and just got GS Seoul 1st round today.

    Rejected by Macquarie and HSBC a few weeks ago. No news from other banks so far...

    Is UBS still sending out 1st round invitations, or is it over? ;(

    I mean I know all these including but not limited to my friends and my own personal experience.

    Rosemary23:
    no.
    I don't mean I get all the invitations I mentioned above. I am not looking into IBD. more like S&T.
