    Any final tips at all for barclays?
    Strength-based, conducted by HR and mine took just over 30 minutes.

    Nothing technical and almost no commercial awareness; it's all about whether you'd fit in the firm.

    Good luck!

    On a side note... I found this article to be quite interesting regarding the value of internships.

    I know it's a bit off topic but what is your mind on some analysts who haven't had a wealth of experience?

    Division? I thought we applied general FO.

    Mine was 16 minutes, can't really gauge how it went.

    I personally had mine on the 15th Jan, although they might be giving out more final rounds depending on the calibre of students on the first wave of final rounds. You never really know, so I wouldn't lose hope just yet.

    Nice to finally speak to you OP best thread on TSR.

    Do all banks bother sending rejection emails? Or do you just assume rejection after a certain period?
