    Jesus ben, I was only thanking somene for actually giving some helpful information. And yes before you ask I do find that kind of information helpful, because I will now know at least to some extent what to expect when I go in for interview. Everyone can learn valuation multiples and scour the ft for news, but it's very hard to get a sense of the culture at a firm as small as Gleacher's when there is not a lot of information online. So I will re-iterate my thanks to the previous poster as that kind of information is precisely the kind of thing I was looking for. Whilst it obviously doesn't answer all my queries it goes a fair way to answering one of them, and for that I am grateful. There is no need to be so petty about it, what difference does it make to you.

      Just remember, dress very well. I made that number 1 for a very good reason.

      I fear that you being a student in the English department, this will be an insurmountable challenge.

      I'm guessing the students at UCL are more accustomed to bowties and elbow patch blazers, than power suits and ferragamo ties?

        I discussed this with someone else, some people have a fail two and out rule when it comes to interviews. I think these boys might be two, but could be one.

          Most students don't have 3.5k worth of gear for interviews.

          That's not how much style costs.

            This is FI-nance. FI as in “FIx me a drink, Jeeves.” FI as in “FIlling my wallet with Benjamins.” FI as in “FIckle with my private jets.”

              I think 1.5k is enough when you drop the watch requirement.

              I've got an interview with Gleacher Shacklock in a couple of weeks and was wondering if anyone knew much about them? It's for their summer internship. Any advice on what I should be preparing for in the interview itself would be ace as well. I study english at UCL for reference. Thanks.

              well done mate,

              did u have a phone interview 1st?

              what questions did they ask (style or specific questions)?

              I've got an interview coming up, haven't had it yet. And no, I don't have phone interview, just in person.

                Be specific. Royal Oxford. Pinpoint Oxford or Herringbone 'ok'.
