2018 IB Summer Analyst Recruiting Timeline - Hong Kong/Singapore

I know there's an informative megathread discussing US-focused IB SA recruiting for 2018, and I'd like to start a new one for those specifically interested in HK/SG to share knowledge, questions, information, and concerns regarding IB SA recruiting for summer 2018, as interviews have been sent out for some of them. Good luck to everyone.

anyone from Europe got the 1st round interview by Citi?

Oct 5, 2017

Does anyone know what's going on with Citi HK, SA 1st rounds in NYC? It seems like they have written tests that can go for up to 2 hours. No one I know knows what's going on with it.

Oct 3, 2017

Want to know what it's gonna be like as well

Oct 9, 2017

Has anyone heard from GS IB HK? Heard a rumor that it's not going to hire SA this year. Is that true?

Oct 11, 2017

Just got first rounds for Citi HK. I go to a UK target.

It's 2 hours in the London office. It must include tests or something like that.

Oct 22, 2017

HK

Oct 25, 2017

when did you finish the online video interview?

Nov 3, 2017

Any feedback? I finished the second round this week, but no feedback after then. Do you know when can hear back for AC?

Oct 22, 2017

Not a single one I know have heard back. My guess is that we should hear back for superday early next week. Last week, an analyst told me they would wrap up the whole process in 2-3 weeks

Oct 23, 2017

Anyone heard from UBS/StandChart/CS/HSBC in sg?

Oct 24, 2017

CS SG is sending out first round phone interview invitations to those who are attending overseas unis

Does Macquarie hire SA at all?

Oct 23, 2017

which country are you asking for?

Oct 23, 2017

HK, do they hire SA or full-time? Did not see any position on the website.

Oct 11, 2017

Anyone attending Citi HK IBD superday in London tomorrow?

Oct 24, 2017

Has anyone heard back from Temasek? FT or SA?

Oct 30, 2017

no OT invitation right now. Is it a signal of rejection?

Nov 6, 2017
blaircheng2013:

no OT invitation right now. Is it a signal of rejection?

sorry, but what is an OT invitation?

Oct 11, 2017

Finished my superday for Citi HK in the London office. I heard HR goes back to HK and then decides on who to give offers to.

Has anyone who interviewed in NYC received offers?

Oct 24, 2017

I know last year Citi gave out offers on the interview day itself and gave out some more later on. How's Citi compared to other BBs in HK?

Oct 11, 2017

Really?

I just confirmed with a few people, no people from NYC superday received offers yet for HK. So I guess what HR said is true, they will be giving offers after returning to HK.

Oct 24, 2017

For CS, selected applicants take three phone interviews. Does anybody know whether an applicant needs 'yes' from all interviews to be proceeded to the next round? I didn't do well on my second one lol

Oct 11, 2017

I have 2 phone interviews then offer decision for CS HK.

Oct 24, 2017

I believe CS SG invites selected applicants to the next round interview after the three phone interviews. Quite surprised that CS HK only runs phone interview

Oct 24, 2017

Did you mean you did two phone interviews and got offer already? For CS HK IBD 2018?

Oct 25, 2017

you got an offer? how long does it take for HR to get back to you?

Oct 25, 2017

Anyone got an offer for JPM S&T Singapore?

Oct 26, 2017

Yeah i got it last Friday. Did my superday on Wednesday and was offered on Thursday. Contract signed on friday. You?

Oct 25, 2017

Got dinged as I did superday last Thurs and no reply then T_T. Thanks for sharing.

Oct 11, 2017

Anyone know if Citi HK IB has started handing out offers yet?

Oct 26, 2017

anyway all the best for your other interviews! i'm sure you will land something good :)

Oct 26, 2017

Anyone else heard back from JPM ibd already?

Oct 31, 2017

Have you received an offer?

Nov 15, 2017

P'med

Oct 23, 2017

I am based in HK. Wonder if you guys know any other banks doing first round in HK for HK IBD Summer?

Sep 30, 2017

Wonder if anyone could share some insight on Citi HK 1st Round interview - I suppose the interviewers are the same as those that went to NYC and the questions were predetermined rather than randomly brought up. What questions did you guys get for discussion?

Oct 31, 2017

Has anyone heard back from Citi Markets?

Oct 25, 2017

did u pass the 1st round?

Oct 31, 2017

Yes, final rounds should have been completed this week.

Nov 3, 2017

I finished the second round this week and no reply yet.

Oct 24, 2017

May I know where you are based? I assume all first rounds were done two weeks ago. So if this week I didn't hear back for 2nd round, it's a ding? :(

Oct 5, 2017

Go to a target, just got invited for NYC superday

Nov 1, 2017

Bump for CS. Anyone heard back after the first round? Thx

Oct 25, 2017

DeninWSO:

bump..also thinking baml may start its first rounds recently. anyone received interview invites?

I applied for the markets position HK and received two 'stay connected' emails saying they are still taking time to look at my resume, and have not heard anything yet. Does everyone get this email every Tuesday, or is this supposed to be a good sign?

Nov 3, 2017

Just out of curiousity, for SG (assuming this means Singapore) recruiting, what type of citizenship and language fluencies are required?

Oct 25, 2017

South East Asian languages a huge plus but not necessary. We see analyst classes being filled with people fluent in those languages (Chinese/Bahasa/Vietnamese/Thai/Korean) who study in local Singapore universities or targets.

As for citizenships I see a mix of people from everywhere, dont think there are any formal requirements

Oct 24, 2017

By the way, does anyone know if UBS has already filled their class? Wondering if the video interview is still worth doing at this time.

Oct 31, 2017

I am having AC next week so have faith!

Oct 31, 2017

Is this for IB?

Nov 6, 2017
hkwildcat:

Which division did you apply for? When did they get back to you? I applied for HK and they never seem to get back other then 'stay connected' mails...

Oct 24, 2017

Did anybody hear back from CS SG IBD after the first round interview? I believe I got dinged as those who applied to HK IBD are hearing back.....

Oct 31, 2017

people who got JPM offers, when did you hear back after the final round? thanks

Nov 6, 2017

Has anymore heard back from Citi markets final round? The HR said it would take two weeks and it's already been two weeks. Does anyone know whether we would get rejection letter or we would just never hear back if we get rejected?

Nov 8, 2017

Not sure about Markets but CMO already gave out rejection emails (Like 1.5 weeks back). I'd imagine that the process is pretty similar across the board!

Nov 9, 2017

I'm still waiting for the answer too. I think they're waiting to finish HK last rounds interviews to give an answer.

Oct 31, 2017

Have you heard back yet?

Nov 9, 2017

Nope.

Oct 31, 2017

Has anyone heard back from Hong Kong JP Morgan IBD ??

Oct 24, 2017

Really excited to be joining CS HK's IBD team next summer.

For those that have accepted offers for Hong Kong, I thought it would be cool to create maybe a WhatsApp group to chat and get to know each other. Please let me know if you're interested.
