annaxoxo, what's your opinion? Comment below:

I have three questions: 1. what did you get asked for in interviews? 2. Is it possible to recruit for FT positions not via a summer internship? and 3. Is it impossible for a candidate from Japan to apply and realistically have a shot at obtaining a job (esp in Singapore)? I'm a native English speaker but no Chinese, past experience in buyside and a BB

Hi there. I'm a junior year student who will be starting a BB S&T SA in HK next summer - Would appreciate if you could shed some light on the following questions:

  1. Differences in culture between different BBs in Asia? Specifically for S&T

  2. Return offer rates for SA in HK?

  3. Tips for securing your preferred 2nd rotation during the internship?

  4. What was most helpful for you in obtaining a FT return offer?

Thanks for your help!

How important was GPA when applying for roles in a BB? I am currently at a Second Upper (junior year) and was wondering if I still have a shot at a BB.

Sorry I meant Second Upper!! Thank you so much for your response. I am in a local 3 singapore uni currently studying accounting but only have one audit internship done in sophomore year. I never really paid attention to internships up till now. What would you recommend I do moving forward if I want to break into the industry (more so Equity Research or S&T) ? Would doing an off cycle internship help?

Hi there, I am looking to apply for a off cycle internship with a BB. In particular, Equity Research. I have been prepping behaviourals for the longest time ever and I am quite certain that I'd be able to answer that part of the interview well. I am very unsure what I should do to prep for the technical part of the interview. I have been reading the news consistently but what kind of questions would they ask in specific?
