Application journey

August - October 2020

This is your opportunity to tell us first-hand why you’d like to be a game changer. The application form will ask about your personal details, academic and professional background, as well as open-ended questions related to your career motivations and goals.

Apply here before 11 October 2020 if you are based in the US and 31 October 2020 if you are based in Canada. Our online application portal will be closed after the deadline.

August - October 2020

As part of the application, you are required to complete a two-step online assessment within 48 hours upon receiving the invitation. The assessment includes a game-based assessment and video interview, both of which, are short, fun and easy to follow. They can be accessed on your mobile device anywhere with a stable internet connection.

Here are some tips for preparing for the video interview:

  1. Read the invitation carefully and ensure there are no distractions or interruptions during the assessment.
  2. Ensure you have strong and stable internet connection to avoid any technical difficulties during the assessment. 
  3. Complete the video interview in a quiet and remote setting that is free of any background noise.
  4. Speak slowly and clearly into your microphone when replying to the interview questions. We recommend the use of a headphone to ensure your voice is picked up by the microphone. 
  5. Please answer the interview questions in the same language that they are being asked to you.
  6. If you are using a laptop to access the assessment, please use Chrome, Firefox, Edge or Safari to login.
  7. Relax and be yourself!

October - December 2020

There will be two rounds of virtual interviews. Selected candidates will get the opportunity to meet our experienced staff and partners who are based in Mainland China or Hong Kong. You will gain a better understanding of what it’s like working in our offices in mainland China and Hong Kong.
