    General Tips
    It was always finance for me as I had always felt that I had the entrepreneur genes in me and to be good at that one is required to have a good knowledge of finance. To prepare for it I used to read the basic books like liars poker, rich dad poor dad, The Quants and Life of a quant by Hermann hesse. Before 3 months from placement I also read John C Hull which deals with financial instruments. But what I encountered finally was totally different from what I expected. Getting a good finance job was mostly CPI and test driven (and all sorts of other things)and not on your interest in finance or your knowledge of finance. So in the end I prepared for tests and cracked the test for HSBC in which I would be joining soon.

      Round 1

      Technical Interview

      Interview Questions
      • Question 1: -Run me through your resume in 5 minutes? -Why Banking? 9 Why HSBC? -What area would you like to work in? –Tell me about your Family?
      • Question 2: Tell me how can you increase the quality of a BPO center by 20% everything else remaining same?
      • Question 3: If you were in an I-Bank and were approached by a corporate with a mandate for deciding their dividend policy what would be your approach?
      • Question 4: What kind of cross selling can you to do for such a corporation?
      Interview Experience
      I think the company was looking for:
      • Leadership skills
      • Domain experience
      • Profile
      • Attitude
      • Aptitude/problem solving skills
      • Enthusiasm/passion
      • Any other factors that may be important
      Profile, Clarity in thought, Enthusiasm, Problem solving skills,
      Pleasant Personality, etc.
      - The way you present the details in your resume can play a crucial
      role in getting you a call from HSBC.
      - Luckily and thank heavens that CGPA does NOT play a part in
      shortlisting for HSBC – Thank God for small mercies!
      - The selection procedure for all divisions of HSBC including I-Bank
      is similar.
      - All shortlisted candidates would have to undergo a psychometric
      test, which is a variation of Conjoint Analysis for getting to know
      your work preferences!
      Interview Tips
      - Prepare for a usual general interview questions like Why HSBC, Why
      Banking, Run me through the resume, etc.?
      - Be prepared with one area of interest in Banking – Most people here
      had said corporate banking and something specific in that – I had
      said Dividend Policy.
      - Be extremely thorough with all sorts of possible questions on your
      Resume – I was asked questions on BPO!
