Would be grateful if someone could PM me a proper contact number - I tried calling through reception today but no one picked up when redirected.

did anyone hear back yesterday evening after the ac yet? my feeling was that they had made their decisions already on thursday and just wanted to check if their feeling was right. especially the late interviews felt as if the interviewer did not try to seriously assess the candidate.

i havent heard anything back yet. it was a strange setup. im not too confident because everyone was very qualified and the interviews where all very relaxed.

same.

every interview I had, the interviewer spent half the time talking about how BarCap was a great place to work. Nice to know, but i wasn't really given any opportunity to show them what i know, tell them about my experiences, skills etc. bizarre.

though, i got an email this morning from a guy who i sat with at dinner, saying his desk wasn't taking anyone from the AC....

....i didn't even get an interview with that desk!!! why bother telling me? if he liked me enough to send me the email, he could've at least got me an interview!

grr.

yeah it was frustrating. have you heard of anyone being offered a place? do you think we would have heard by now if we got an offer?

nothing heard too. maybe, because all candidates were truly high calibre with quant education and trading internship experience, they just go for "personal fit".

Hate to dampen expectations but they generally call people same day if they have decided.... one guy I know had to wait two weeks though (this was last year), but think this was the exception...

You're right about them deciding pretty quickly, interviews are more a formality to ensure ur competent, some desks definetely have a strong idea of who they want to hire before interviews
thats what I heard, but with this one being on a friday finishing at 6ish and 30 of us there I have a feeling offers will be distributed on monday. I havent heard of anyone getting an offer yet also. but we'll see.

I think that if you don't receive a call on the same day then it probably won't be good. but this may not be the case.. best of luck though.

For an internship, not a huge amount. Know largely what's happening in the markets, have an opinion, learn a bit about products you're interested in, where BarCap fit in the industry and make sure you're prepped on how to answer any particular competency question.

Does anyone have any idea how much we're meant to know if we're applying for the Sales grad scheme at Barcap? Has anyone been through the process/ is it quite technical?

I got a call Friday saying I had 2 offers.

I also know somebody who got 4 offers!

Just to ensure nobody thinks this is a red herring, got call at 7.30 and willing to answer questions by PM.

Offers are prop commodities trading and credit trading
easy choice..
