Thank God for the interviews I have got during the past 4 months, which provide me previous perspective from the employer of different industries.

  • Haitong Security
    • Be able to ready the answer on behalf of the management
  • DBS Bank (Institutional banking operations)
    • The complexity and scale of institutional banking product
  • Facebook
    • In past experience demonstrate the skills in prioritisation and logic thinking
    • In a real case, show high level planning to decompose a task with defining data (visual, text or graph), statistic test and even machine learning.
  • RHB
    • The difference of HKMA and MAS is that HKMA has fine category of can/cant while MAS expect you to ask for their individual confirmation.
  • Morgan Stanley
    • Their current challenge of ops risk team – currently various requests on reporting / MIS for multiple regions and fluidic nature of trading with limited man power.
    • Interested with the skills I employed to automate reporting procedures in Excel. Did I define user-defined functions, create basic subroutines to interface with the user, basic programming structures in VBA and automate Excel’s Goal Seek and Solver tools and use numerical techniques to create “live solutions” to solve targeting and optimisation problems.
    • Curious about my own career development goal for next five years.
