    Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Singapore
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Singapore) in December 2008.

    Interview

    Interview was secured through a recruiting agency.
    Had an interview with 2 senior analysts of the team.
    Interview lasted only 30mins and was contacted to secure the role in the same day.
    Most of the interview session was going through the responsibility of the role in particular.
    As it was only a contract role, the interview process was much lenient than that of a regular interview for a permanent role.

    Interview Questions

    • There are no difficult questions.
      - Long term career goals
      - Why choose banking?
      - Tell me more about yourself   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Did not negotiate at all as I was a fresh graduate without any experience.
