𝐒𝐚𝐥𝐞𝐬 & 𝐓𝐫𝐚𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐈𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐯𝐢𝐞𝐰 𝐐𝐮𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐟𝐨𝐫 2023/2024 𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐌𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐊𝐧𝐨𝐰

For university students targeting hashtag#internships and hashtag#gradjobs in S&T, the job market has been worse than expected, and even hashtag#globalmarkets teams that had several offers last year, didnt generate great hope.

But that means your efforts need to be that much unique to outcompete students with stronger profiles and every interview offer you get, counts. 

Passing less than one interview may lead to no offer this year! 

All students who have signed up for the Markets Team, or are interested in investment banking S&T in the future, must save this latest Interview List! 

hashtag#Ibankcoaching compiled a list of Markets Team interview questions that hiring managers asked this year:

✅ Technical Qs

1️⃣ Do you know the responsibility of a Trader?

2️⃣ How can a Trader effectively manage risk?

3️⃣ Trade idea (Barclays S&T)

4️⃣ What is the ETF trading process? (Jane Street S&T)

5️⃣ What is ETF creation & redemption? (Jane Street S&T)

✅ Market Qs:

In terms of Markets views, Interest rate hike, ESG and Outbreak of war are all hot topics this year! Other issues include:

6️⃣ The impact of the Israel Palestine war on global markets (CACIB Global Markets Group Discussion Topic):

7️⃣ Current FX rate for SGDKRW or other currency (Citi Markets)

8️⃣ What’s the level of S&P 500 right now? (Goldman Sachs S&T)

9️⃣ How is your outlook for oil price? (Goldman Sachs FICC & Equities)

🔟 Market news sharing (JPM Markets)


✅ Motivational and Fit Qs

1️⃣1️⃣ Do you want to be a Trader or a Sales?

1️⃣2️⃣ Why FICC? (CICC FICC Structured Product Sales)

1️⃣3️⃣ Why markets? (HSBC Markets)

1️⃣4️⃣ What is your career aspiration? (HSBC Markets)

1️⃣5️⃣ How did you equip yourself for Global Markets?(BNP Paribas)

1️⃣6️⃣ The client requested urgent trade, but the trader is currently busy with other stuff. How would you manage the situation? (Jane Street S&T)

As long as you prepare these 16 questions, for either an S&T interview or an international #investmentbank you can't go wrong with this.

In fact, #Ibankcoaching understands very well that this year’s Job Markets are dismal. Often, it’s not necessarily that we don’t work hard enough or that we’re not good enough. Many things are simply out of our control. 

Just like every time the market changes, we say: "Only the students who can adapt first and turn crisis into opportunity can become the winners of the next round"! As for this job search journey, we will definitely continue to back you up!! 

Let's hustle together!
