Hi, I did the phone interview about 3 weeks ago and it went well, I passed the phone interview stage and they're still waiting to get back to me about whether I've got in or not, my advice for the interview would be to go over some competencies so, for example, they might ask 'tell me about a time when you had to work collaboratively', so go over that, also, look at the HSBC values on their website - trust me that one's important!
Good luck

Yep, I'm at the same stage as you then. I have already had my interview and I got that question too. I was also asked about a time I showed resilience. Any idea when we will receive further information?

Nice, never been to Greece, but I'd love to go one day, I'm doing NCS too, for the first 4 weeks of summer, then I'm doing my Gold DofE and then I have some other work experiences lined up too, and by that time it will be results day - scary!

Exciting, sounds like you are very busy this summer. I looked into the DofE but it seems a very long process. Very scary! Results day is probably the most influential day I will have at that point in my life.

DofE is long, I definitely agree, but I did Bronze with my school and it was loads of fun, so doing Gold with my friends should be fun too, I definitely recommend it!

Yepp! We've come this far. If you are on a time constraint it might not be a bad idea to email them

Hey, yeah they said I was successful with the interview, and then last week or the week before they told me they were still processing the applications and talking with their managers or something, so basically they're taking ages to think about it, hopefully we find out soon

I've emailed them asking about when we can expect to hear more news, and beyond the vague response: latest we will have everything at the end of March.
