    No, after this, they have another interview round.

    It's standard SHL, all the best!

    Yeah, trying to hold a smile while self-consciously watching yourself recite competency questions is a real challenge.

    Did one for Schroders summer recently - 'If you could invite anyone to dinner who would you invite and why?'
    Literally 15 seconds of me just staring at the camera thinking are you f****** serious?

      I have received video interview invite from BlackRock too.

      Is it completely competency based? Any tips and tricks?

      I looked online and it seems to be the first time they are doing it for spring weeks (can't find any info). It says short, so I'm assuming three or four standard questions to filter a few out?

      Also, does anyone know when the BlackRock Spring Week is?

      If baml chooses to convert you to a summer intern, would that mean you would have a place on the baml 2016 summer internship programme? Or would that mean you get fast tracked through the application process?

      Oh, sorry, I misunderstood the original question.
      Yes, you have go through an AC process
      Although the actually conversion happens when one actually achieves the offer
