Interview Questions - Asia Pacific

A successful interview requires solid preparation. Your answers should be clear, concise and show your genuine interest in the Firm. Interview questions are not always difficult; in fact, some can be quite simple.

Below are some examples of general interview questions you may be asked. You should also be prepared to answer specific queries about your background, your qualifications, previous internships or positions you've held, your school experiences and the accomplishments included on your resume.

We are interested in testing your interpersonal skills, motivation, career aspirations, company fit and leadership.

You should come with questions for us as well! The interview is an opportunity for you to ask about your role and responsibilities, the division you are applying to or Morgan Stanley in general.

Your school's career services office, library or resource center can help you find other sources and questions as you prepare for interviews.
