Recruitment Process - Asia Pacific

Attend a presentation
The recruiting process begins in September each year, when the Morgan Stanley Recruiting Team presents general information about career opportunities at our Firm. Please review our on-campus calendar for a listing of the dates a Morgan Stanley Asia Pacific representative will be at your school. If you're interested in a career with us, join us for this presentation. Take some time to talk with our colleagues who have worked in the Asia Pacific offices; they'll explain the myriad opportunities available at Morgan Stanley Asia Pacific, share their own observations of the Firm and why they selected it for their careers.

Interview with us
We typically have at least two rounds of interviews for our graduate and summer programs.

Interviews will be arranged either on campus or via phone for the first round. Each candidate can expect to have approximately 2-4 30-minute interviews.

The final stage of our process is usually a full-day interview session held at Morgan Stanley's offices in New York, London, Beijing, Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney. If you need to travel more than a day, you will be accommodated in a nearby hotel.

These interviews are with our professionals at all levels of seniority and are designed to help you learn more about us, meet our professionals, find out more about the role and what it is like to work at the Firm. It is also an opportunity for us to meet you and have a clear picture of your suitability for the role you have applied for. Typical areas that are explored in our interviews include: problem-solving, analysis, intelligence, decision-making, leadership, interpersonal skills, motivation, beliefs and values, career aspirations, knowledge and/or technical capability.

If we don't visit your school
Unfortunately, Morgan Stanley representatives can't visit every school. However, please read through this website for more information about Morgan Stanley Asia Pacific, review the job descriptions for the Business Units that are recruiting and complete our online application.
