    Decided that IB is not for me. Why would you want to work from 9am to 3am everyday?

    Let's all calm down, it's not everyday.
    Also IB=!IBD

    Just because you may work 16hours in IBD doesn't mean you do in every division.

    mate, M&A is a sub-branch within IBD/IB.

    Look at S&T.

    Hmm not too bad - focusing on my Credit Suisse cover letter at the moment. How about you?

    I am going to the morning IB event as well as the afternoon one.

    I'll be starting Credit Suisse once I finish Blackrock. I'm using it to prepare for firms I would actually like to work at.

    Yes I will also be going to the morning event. I wanted to know the format of the evening and why a video interview was required of us.

    Got the invite but it conflicts with my Compulsury maths course for uni
    Ah. It does seem like it will be a very insightful day. It is afternoon so may fit in your schedule?

    Is the morning event anything special? I'm wondering just because of the video interview process.

    Did you attend last year?

    You are not at a target uni -> chances significantly drop (whatever these well informed folks say here in TSR.. don't listen to them), but it largely depends on what else you have on your CV. Also remember that all it takes is one, there are 9 BBs, if you get just a single SW, basically you get the chance to be very well postitioned at that particular bank's next year summer recruitment.

    Don't have any finance experience -> chances drop a bit lower, but again, largely depends on what else do you have. Try anyway.
    BBs? sorry; could you explain what this means please?

    No, this is my first time. I honestly don't know why they interview to be honest, I think the morning session is more structured.

    Is Blackrock open? I'm on the website, but I can't find any insight days/spring weeks in the careers section.
