    UBS rejection post interview.

    Can anyone offer me any insight into how to improve my interview technique? They said I would hear back in 2 weeks time so judging by the fact I was rejected after 2 days is obviously an indicator of how poor my interview performance was :cry2:

    What makes it worse is that I actually prepped quite a lot and I didn't think it went too badly.
    Don't read anything into how quickly got rejected
    In experience, they just say two weeks so people don't ring them up and bug them
    Ask for feedback (although I often find it's quite disingenuous)

    Thanks for the support

    I applied for CCS and the email says that they won't give specific feedback.

    I prepared strong answers for all the motivation questions and competencies but for some reason in every interview I do, I always come out kicking myself that I didn't mention something. I know theres no excuse for this for a telephone interview when you can have notes in front of you, but for some reason I just keep continuing to do it.
    The notes might be the problem, tbh
    Might sound too forced? You want it to come across very naturally in a competency/motivational/strength interview because from the interviews' pov if someone really wants to do this they shouldn't need to rely on facts/notes just need to be genuine

    anyone knows how many were interviewed for gs first round? they started interviewing like two days ago and should be finished today?
    where did you hear they finish today? they cant interview like 500 people in two days, and thats minimum, assuming they have near 200 sw spots

    in all honesty? you will be doing a summer at gs jpm or ms, whichever you like, next year, id choose two sws, if you find a month stressful. so do gs and ms, then you convert one or both, and that way you still get free time in easter

    It is a good idea, wil think about it, but not sure of actual conversion rates! (the whole actual point of SW) But thanks for the help, I do really need advice right now
