HSBC visited our college for campus hiring.


  1. CGPA: 6.82+
  2. Branches allowed: all UG
  3. Profile: Trainee Software Engineer

Round 1 (Online Aptitude and Coding Assessment): The test had the aptitude and coding sections. Aptitude was categorized into 3 sections namely verbal ability, logical reasoning, and technical MCQs. Technical MCQs covered questions on topics like data structures, OS, DBMS, code snippets, and a few on CI/CD and cloud.

The coding section consisted of 2 questions : 

  1. One easy level question related to cards.
  2. Reorder an array according to given indexes  

Around 154 students were shortlisted for the next round.

Round 2 (Online HSBC Values Assessment): This was a behavioral round consisting of MCQs to judge our abilities and how well we map with the values of the company. Most of the questions were situation based. Even though this was an elimination round, all students were shortlisted for virtual interviews. 

Round 3 (Technical Interview Round): The virtual technical interview of HSBC was a bit different from the normal interviews we have seen till now. After the basic introduction, the interviewer asked the interviewee to tell which topics he/she should ask questions from. The ball was completely in our court. Whatever we respond to, the next question will be related to it. (You can completely take account of your responses and turn the interview in your favor.)  

Since the call was on Zoom, students were asked to share their screens and display their projects from GitHub. Then a brief discussion on the technology used in the project. Also, if someone mentions their interest in competitive coding, they had to open their profiles from either hackerrank , geeksforgeeks, or any other platform where they code. They checked how regular we are in coding etc.

Some students who mentioned JavaScript in their resume were thoroughly asked questions on it plus made them code with screen share. 

Tips: Make sure you know everything you have mentioned in your resume with a backup of it on Github. Anything you mention on the resume will be asked. 

Round 4 (HR Round):

  1. Tell me something about yourself.
  2. Where do you see yourself in the next 3 years?
  3.  Little discussions on family background.
  4. How will you be an asset to HSBC?

33 students were selected at the end.

Tips: Be confident and reading about the company beforehand will turn out to be beneficial. The resume can make or break your chances, so prepare your resume wisely.
