HK/Singapore 2020 SA Timeline

I searched for the 2020 SA in HK and Singapore but there was no mega thread. Any thoughts on the timeline for that? is it too late to start networking? Any apps released yet?

can anyone speak to my chances as a non Chinese speaking (though Asian) US Citizen? Would be leaning to HK over Singapore, but very interested in either. Better or worse chance than NY?

talked to an MS HK MD, he said theoretically Chinese/Korean is not required, but since HK office is working a lot with clients from these areas, they are only recruiting a very small number of non Chinese/Korean speaking analysts

For JPM it's a must. For MS it's a plus (one vi question in Mandarin / Korean)

Hey Guys,

I am a non-target uni student who would like to secure an IB internship in HK next summer.
I had 2 hirevues with MS and a psychometrics test(I think) with JPM.
Have not heard back from GS.
I plan on applying to CS and UBS.

Where are you guys on the recruiting process? How does an IB intervieew go?

I am self-studyign IB interview course but super frustrated about it. Can some with an experince PM some tips, please?

Also here is my situation, I am a non-chinese student(Korean: native) and am currently serving at Korea for my mandatory service.
I am working with high military officials because I applied for my current positon and had mutiple rounds of interviews to get it.
Would this help me stand out? I interned at UBS's PB last summer and worked at a start-up company in France last May.
Never had an IB experience. Can someone please guide me provide me some advice? I have bad GPA.. 3/5/4.0

No, I dont. a GS recruiter reached out to me and encouraged me to apply to IBD 2020 Analyst. But I havent heard anything back since. So I wonder if anyone is on the same boat.
