Phone Interview Situation
I was lucky to get a heavy hitter (not in IBD, a different division) at an all purpose bank like citi, hsbc, db in asia (but not singapore/hk/china/india) to refer me to the head of investment banking in that same nation where there is no recruiting process because the satellite office is very small with only 3-5 people.
The head of ibanking in that country wants to set up a phone interview with someone in singapore/hk where there is formal recruiting (which for all intents and purposes, is almost over).
What can I expect from this phone interview? Typical phone interview? Fully technical? If I do well offered an SA position? I'm a sophomore, but I don't think the head of ibanking in the satellite office who wants to set up the phone interview knows that…
