    What's the deal with the cover letter? I know it should be around a page long, but what exactly should we include?

    It should basically contain a short summary of yourself, what motivates you , why you think you're a perfect fit to for the position, why you want to go into division X, why bank Y, Relevant experience, etc.

    CS's application software is bloody awful - the page refreshes every time you add a new 'qualification' so filling in like 13 GCSEs and 4 A-levels is really annoying

    Hey guys

    I'm an intentional boy(Korean) so I've got a non English name, not a ridiculous foreign name with like 85 letters but not a typical English name. I go by the name James but it's not official or anything.

    Do you guys reckon that when I fill out my apps form, I should include my preferred name James?

    So, something like: First name : Sehwan (James) Last Name: Park

    It's just so that when I do some name drop offs, its easier for them to remember?

    Any non-white/english named internationals?

    Blackrock seems to be open, for anyone who's interested.

    For anyone in the know; as someone aiming for S&T, would I be better applying for the Analytics & Risk division at Blackrock? I think Investments would be more suited for someone aiming for IBD, right?
    Hey,

    I can't seem to find the spring week applications on the website. Is that what you meant? Could you share the link please?

    -Thanks

    Hey, about to start A&F at Warwick with 3 A stars and an A at A-level, and work experience at a private prop trader and wealth management firm- do the S&T spring weeks prefer degrees such as Maths,etc? Also, how many spring weeks do most people apply for at once?
