    How long does it take for UBS to reply after their phone interview? Had one for CSS two weeks ago loll should i just assume im rejected? Also did anyone hear anything from RBS?
    (Original post by stabilo1)
    I interviewed just over two weeks ago (weds) for risk and haven't heard anything either, kind of assuming a rejection tbh
    Had an interview with RBS on the 26th of Jan. They got back within 3 days, as promised. They said I met their benchmark requirements for the interview and will confirm whether or not I have been offered a place on the Spring programme in February (the interviewer told me that this is the case since they have many suitable candidates who have got past the telephone interview and will therefore have to shortlist further.

    How long before hearing from MS after final round interview?
    It's been over a month since mine so I'm probably expecting a rejection

    For those of you who want to be traders within Investment Banks, I think this is a good talk to watch:



    Don't take what he says as complete gospel but he does raise some very meaningful points which I can verify through personal experiences.

    Some of those points are the main reasons why I chose against aiming for a career focusing around the secondary markets.

    Just a heads up for the HSBC 1st year internship, HR likes the values side and WHY HSBC a lot. So if you mention things like their flagship water programme and other charity stuff they like that a lot, (if the 1st Year Internship is like the School leaver insight programme you will even spend a day raising money for charity). But most of the interview will be comp/motivational, so make sure you can nail these, then know what HSBC does, who they are and their strengths (Asian origin and global presence means for strong for international clients/customers = service in most countries that mean anything, etc etc)

    They will be expecting to say that you want to do follow-on internships and grad scheme...so saying you are only doing fill the summer/money will be shooting yourself in the foot!

    You need to be a 1st year of a 3yr course or a 2nd year of a 4yr course.

    Dates are 29 June - 21 August

    Good luck!!

    (Just so you don't think I'm talking out my a.... , I did their School Leaver Insight Programme over the summer and have got an offer for their 1st Year Internship)
    What do you mean by comp/motivational?

    Competency questions:

    Tell me about a time where you worked in a team?
    Tell me about a time where you changed someone's opinion?
    Tell me about a time when you used your initiative?

    Motivational questions:

    What interests you about a career in banking?
    For what reason do you keep up to date with the news?
    What drives you to succeed?
