    M&G are wastemen. Those nob jockeys put me in a place for a 'back-up' assessment centre incase they didn't get the applicants by March of all times. Bastards.

    Don't have access to a computer? You should apply to Barclays as they love their emerging market sh*t during their application process. You will do well seeing as you evidently already live in one.
    Just wanted to drop by and say that this guy is the real MVP of this thread, thanks for making it so entertaining.

    Also, it is hilarious to see how everyone assumes people on this thread are guys and that HR employees are "girls". This thread does not disappoint year after year Keep it up!

    Has anybody completed the BlackRock virtual cover letter exercise and if so, how was it?! I understand that it's a spoken cover letter but how does HR use it to progress your application?

    Oh wow, so you cannot change the covering letter for different applications on their system? For **** sake...

    What did you do about this?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    sent their HR an email saying that I can't modify my cover letter for new application, then they asked for my cover letter by an email and will modify it manually

    Felt it went pretty good for me. Just basic stuff, just like what you would write down in a cover letter. HR uses it in order to assess you, and progress your application

    how did you access the tests once you logged in?

    When I go onto the talent Q website, it asks for a username and password, it doesnt redirect me straight to the tests after copying and pasting the link on our application page

    EDIT: nvm, finally got through after 30 mins.

    Hey guys,

    How do the bulge-bracket banks like Citi, Deutsche Bank, Barclays and UBS stack up against the boutiques like Greenhill, Centerview, Evercore and Moelis in the UK? In terms of deal flows, reputation, pay and exit opps? Apparently in the US, the smartest kids go to these boutiques instead of the BBs (except for GS, MS) and they would make that decision without thinking twice! Would love everyone's and especially Princepieman's opinion on this.

    Thanks a lot!
