Hong Kong/Singapore – Citi Asia Pacific launched the virtual programs to support campus recruitment. They are open for enrollment to all students around the world. They cover careers in Asia Pacific, including Investment Banking and Citi's client sales and trading business called Markets and Securities Services.
In the space of two weeks, the bank has enrolled over 4,000 students virtually from over 500 universities, which would normally take several months from physical campus recruitment.
This online program is designed to provide students with an insight into life as an analyst, while helping them build the skills and confidence to pursue a career with Citi. This is a free online program for students to build practical skills and career confidence. Students will get to sample 'lifelike' on-the-job tasks to better understand what a career in banking can offer while developing valuable skills for employability.
The virtual experience includes the following:
"This virtual experience is a another smart way to embrace technology to ensure we continue to attract leading talent, and it also helps us broaden our appeal to more people around the world. We are delighted with the response so far, and I look forward to welcoming many of these students to Citi," said Jan Metzger, Head of Asia Pacific Banking, Capital Markets and Advisory Asia Pacific.
"We are increasingly using technology across our business, and this is another example of how we can apply it in innovative ways to support our growth. The program will give students great insight into Citi's Asia Pacific business and also gives us an opportunity to target a much more diverse group of candidates given it is open to everyone," said Stuart Staley, Head of Markets and Securities Services Asia Pacific.
