      Now I am not sure anymore. There was no time given to ask questions, no clarifications. She said we are in the final stages of selecting candidates.

      i did assume, true. can i ask you a q, you might know more than anyone else on here, out of cs ubs and barclays, which two? based on culture which is v important to me id choose ubs, and since they only do their sw in that one week it would be between cs and barclays for the first week. any thoughts would be much appreciated bro!
      Definitely not Barclays.
      Personally I'd go for CS, it's much better than the other two. I agree, I really liked the people I've met at UBS but in terms of long term stability, it's rocky; there have been claims that they'll keep on cutting head count in their investment bank. Heard back in the day ubs had an awful druggy-macho-wall street culture which may still exist with the most senior people. Have not heard good things about CS, either, though, tbf

      Also, credit Suisse conversion happens just after the spring week whereas UBS is September-ish (I think). If you have a cedit suisse offer in hand you can leverage it (and it's more impressive). On the other hand, it's unlikely you'll be able to hold off the decision for that many months and you'd have to renege.

      Why not Barclays? By conversion do you mean that is possible at Credit Suisse to go on Summer Internship still in this year after finishing Spring?

      Hi,
      I am a non-EU professional in his mid-career. Although I got a Bs in International Economics, I worked in sales for the most part of my life. Now I am considering a career turn and looking towards some sort of formal education (in part, due to the fact that my first university's name does not say anything). In addition, I am interested in investment decision taking.
      Pls if you know a university course that leads towards such degree - Investment Analyst or related (fairly priced), preferably in London, could you pls recommend.
      Sorry if off-topic. Thanks!

      Had mine yesterday. What do you want to know? P.s. probably better to use 'their HSBC interview'.
      anything you would like to share would be awesome thanks

      Okay better post it here...

      It was a simple interview. Main questions were Why HSBC? Why investment banking? Question about company values. A commercial awareness question. And some competencies. Also HR conducted the interview. It was a pretty pleasant interview to be honest and I'm sure you guys will all find it fine! Good luck!

      No, sorry, the conversion process

      so what is the conversion process, since the answer from google is The conversion process begins when a person considers the possibility of becoming Jewish.

        See the message above, someone said it all. It was ok - 7 questions, 15-20 min interview.

        When you have your interviews/AC. CS start it straight after their spring week whereas some others start it in September. This is conversion to Summer 2016
