    HR from Nomura got in touch with me to say they're aware of a major problem with their tests at the moment and they're trying to fix it with Kenexa. They said they'd contact me when the problem was fixed and to reset my test.

    How long should I give them before following up? Worried that I'm going to be disadvantaged as I can't get my application reviewed until the tests are done.

    Few days shouldn't make a difference, give them a bit of time (not much else you could do)

    Quick question -

    If in past years I have been to networking events at banks, should I attend them again this year? Thinking about Citi and Rothschild particularly. Wondering if there is really any value-add in me attending them again.

    They're mostly pointless given how the recruitment system works, you have to seriously impress someone for them to then go to HR and get HR to advance your application.

    From my experience they're useful once you've got the offer and want to get into a certain team.

    Nah, they tax you based on your pro-rata salary (£50,000) so you are above the threshold and then you have to reclaim it. At least this is what happened for me, maybe it is different elsewhere.

    Sorry but how do you reclaim it? Have to do it for my internship that just ended too

    HR should send you a P45. If not, ask them. Then once you have that, go online and search for 'P50'. It will come up with the link to the HMRC website. Fill in the online form and submit. You should get all your tax back.

    Once reviewed, they will send you a letter confirming this. They never email you about this so if you get an email, it's not legit.

    If you don't reclaim it now, then they should automatically give it back to you in April 2017, but knowing HMRC, they probably won't.

    Supposing I attend an assessment centre in a couple of weeks and I got the internship offer from that bank, if later on (after two weeks or even some months) I get an offer from another bank that I consider more interesting, is it always possible to reject the previous offer without time constraints?
    (Sorry if it's a naive question, but it's the first year I'm getting interested in these opportunities)

    As soon as you get an offer from Bank A you should contact Bank B and let them know you've received an offer that expires in X amount of days. Hopefully then they can get back to you with a decision before that offer expires. It's inadvisable to accept an offer from Bank A and then renege on it for Bank B.

    After your app has gone through a preliminary review. Give it a few weeks

    Got rejected last night for Off-Cycle, they didn't give a reason but my suspicion is TalentQ. Got through to AC last year. Took about two weeks overall.

    Ah, sorry about that, I did the AC last year as well but still haven't heard back about 4 days after doing the test, seemed tougher this year.

    Just did Barclays Insight 2. Like a post earlier, i I would say it was interesting.... But not great in terms of helping you explain why you would be good for the job. Once I find out if I made it through or not, I will probably give more information on what exactly was included, but a previous post on this thread pretty much says it all. I still am not a fan of video interviews in general, as I don't believe it comes naturally to most people to just talk to themselves. The human interaction of a normal interview, I believe, allows you to bring out your personality much more compared to video interview as you can adjust based on what the other person is doing/saying. Ah well, that's my slight rant about video interviews over. Good luck with the rest of your applications guys and girls!
