After you complete your online application, you will receive immediate email confirmation of the receipt of your application. Those candidates whose applications best meet our requirements will receive an email from the recruiting team to schedule a phone interview in November for full-time positions, and December for summer internship positions. Will my interviews be with the divisions I preference on my online application? Not necessarily. You may be considered for the divisions you selected, but you may also be invited for an interview with a division you did not apply for. We have found that our firmwide recruitment process benefits many candidates since they are considered for all divisions they are suited for, rather than just those that are best known. What is your policy on recruiting graduates who require a work a work permit? All our hiring decisions are driven by business needs. As we move into new and emerging markets or expand our presence in markets where we have a franchise, we clearly need the skills of those who have experience with the culture and/or language of our clients. Should you require an employment visa to work in Asia, we will work with you to process your employment visa and any visa requirements for your family, during your assignment in the region.

We strongly encourage you to visit the Divisions section of our website to learn more about our business divisions.

What kind of people are you seeking to recruit? We recruit from all academic backgrounds at the Bachelors, Masters, MBA and PhD levels. Many of our people have traditional finance backgrounds or business degrees but we also have people with degrees in science, engineering, technology, the humanities or the arts. Is an Asian language required to work in Asia? Fluency in Chinese and English may enhance your application. More importantly, we are looking for candidates with a commitment to the region and an understanding of the cultural differences. Do I need to attach a copy of my Chinese resume when I submit an online application? This is not mandatory, but if you have a copy of your resume written in Chinese it would be useful to us as a reference. What is the interview process? In the Asia region, we begin our interview process with a 15minute preliminary phone interview (please note you may be selected for interviews with more than one division). The interview will focus primarily on your overall interest in the financial services industry. Following the phone interview, selected candidates will be invited to participate in further interviews. Throughout the process we will consider your skills, experiences and divisional preferences to determine if you may be a suitable match for one of our hiring divisions.
