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?

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.

You're at school in HK? Interesting. Where did you intern last summer?

11/26/10

were you rejected from BAML because of the online test?

11/26/10

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?

11/27/10

@wsib1

yes, i believe that's the case

11/27/10

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?

11/28/10

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

11/28/10

^

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.

11/28/10

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.

11/28/10

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

11/28/10

does anyone know the exact deadline for DB HK?

11/28/10

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

11/29/10

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.

12/6/10

Anyone heard anything else other than CS IBD?

I am undergoing first round CS IBD.

12/6/10

Heard some ppl got UBS already. Anyone else got?

12/7/10

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

12/9/10

is db hk still open?

12/9/10

I think deadline is really soon. 10 DEC?

12/9/10

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

12/9/10

i'm pretty sure db is 12/1

12/9/10

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

12/10/10

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.

12/10/10

CITI is starting to send out invitations for first round.

12/10/10

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

12/10/10

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?

12/10/10

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?

12/10/10

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.

12/10/10

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

12/10/10

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