Interview processThe interview was meant to last between 30-50 minutes and it was bang on time. The lady called me at 12:20 exactly (I was expecting there to be a +-5minute delay, but their time keeping is spectacular. She went through the structure of the interview with me and asked me if I had any questions then, but I said I'd prefer to ask anything at the end of the interview.
With every question based on HSBC's 3 values (Openness, Integrity and Empathy), she did give me a few prompters and she was overall a good interviewer as she gave me feedback at the end. I didn't get the job though and she emphasized that it was because I didn't elaborate as much as they would have liked. I saw this as me not bragging, but advise: brag about all your achievements and how you've done it because that really is what employers want to know- they want to know you are up to whatever task they put you up to.
Most difficult question"Describe a time you have shown integrity and the processes /steps that helped you achieve this"
Interview tipsMake sure you outline any processes you took to achieve whatever it is they ask you about. They want to know you can plan out properly and follow a schedule.
