HK IBD Intern Recruiting Schedule?Hey All, So last year, as far as I'm aware, most first-round phone interviews for BB banks in Hong Kong happened early January (with in-person interviews happening in mid or late January).

Multiple SuperdaysThey'll just have you book the flight through some online system or over the phone, through the firm's travel agency. You wouldn't have to explain anything to HR and you don't have to give them any particular reason for why you want to book your flight the day after. 1 year 4 months

Accept Fulbright and decline FT offer at Deloitte?[quote=strategybird]There IS a chance that you do the Fulbright, blow all your interviews, and end up unemployed, but I think it's pretty small, like 10-20%, and the upside you're getting from that risk is disproportionately large.
