In tandem with the changing world, BNP Paribas claims to surround itself with the brightest talents and ones that agree with the principles that have placed them at the top for so long.

There are seven stages in their recruitment process. The first process requires research into job vacancies on the BNP Paribas website after which graduate or intern candidates get to apply for roles they fit into. 

After applications are submitted, the HR team filters the qualified candidates and sets up a telephone interview for each candidate. The phone interview helps the HR department get a grip on the applicant's professional experience and relevant skills. 

The next step is an on-site or virtual interview where graduate or intern applicants get asked about their future in each role and get to speak with the manager of the department. 

After the interview session, candidates get to take a test composed of a practical case. For some roles, a test is required while for others, it isn't.
