HSBC Bank Plc

Analyst, M&A at HSBC Bank Plc

Application Advice: Look beyond merely your financial experience and academics, these are undoubtedly important aspects of a CV but if it's all you mention then it becomes a generic, boring CV very quickly.

Interview Advice: Be well prepared on the technical aspects of the role - you are expected to have a basic grounding in areas of finance and banking, not an advanced knowledge, but a basic grounding. However also be prepared to talk about other aspects of your life besides your ambition to work in finance, otherwise it is tricky to build up a rapport with your interviewers.

Make it more of a two-way conversation to reduce the workload on yourself and make it seem more friendly. Every interview I've had here has not been about technical skills, but rather the ability to work in a team, to lead the team where necessary, to think outside the box and to solve problems.

HSBC Bank Plc

Graduate Analyst, Debt Capital Markets at HSBC Bank Plc

Application Advice: These days, it's imperative that you have an excellent CV that shows a variety of business/commercially related experience as well as any other extra-curricular activities to demonstrate that you are a well-rounded individual. By ensuring that you have a clear and concise CV that is tailored to the role that you are applying for, you are far more likely to capture the attention of the recruiters. When undertaking online tests, the key is preparation and practice. Do not expect to be able to pass them with flying colours on a first attempt as they are probably a little different to anything you have done previously.

Interview Advice: Once you are at interview stage, whilst your previous experience and CV carrys weight in as much as the examples you will use to support your statements, in all honesty more consideration is given to you as a person, how you conduct yourself and how you express your ideas. Very often I meet candidates at assessment centres who are more qualified, more varied and genuinely more impressive than I am on paper, but actually they have very poor inter-personal skills and do not exude the confidence, professionalism and clarity that would be required in a front office role. Remember to be polite, courteous and inquisitive with anyone that you meet on the assessment day as you never know who will be feeding back information on you to the relevant people.
