    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (Paris (France)) in September-2017.

    Interview

    Entretien directement avec le maître de stage dans son bureau, très détendu tout en restant professionnel. Pas de questions techniques , juste des questions classiques d'entretien. Pas de question piégée non plus, juste une évaluation des motivations et de la connaissance de l'entreprise.
