    Exactly same with barclays didn't really learn anything.

    He should just be able to teach himself technical skills, though, tbh
    What would you say were the highlights of the Barclays programme, if any?

    Learning theory from a book/website, is different from watching and experiencing it being used by professionals in the real world though.

    Hi guys, have any of you heard back from RBS? My application status (post interview) says "On hold pending technical query." Is that what it says on any of your applications?

    Lol, good question.

    It's classroom based so you really spend a lot of time with the other candidates and you can make some good friends

    Also can't imagine it's hard to convert because the post spring week interviews were very similar to the pre spring week ones

    Yeah but at spring week level nobody is really going to sit down and do it with you
    Some spring weeks have training days (a shortened version of what you might have at summer) and people go through it with you but it's is still theoretical. It's someone guiding you through a (Adkins machete troy, usually) manual.
    It's not that you sit next to someone and watch them build a DCF and learn loads. That doesn't happen
    I still had to prepare for technical interviews and I just don't are any excuse to be under-prepared

    Quite low
    They convert very few directly from spring, but I've heard that those spring weekers who are not converted but reapply for summer are more successful than the average applicant (which strikes me as odd...)

    Can someone explain to me how the fast-tracking process at the end of the spring week work. Will you be informed at the end of the spring internship that you will be fast-tracked or not? Are you being fast-tracked immediately to the assessment centre for the summer internship in the following year? If anyone has any useful information please do reply.

    Thanks for your reply - yes, still waiting. I know it will be a rejection for me at this point, but I want to receive any feedback regarding my interview...so I am patiently waiting for a reply.

    I understand the feeling. Someone got rejected last week, though?

    Why do think it's a rejection? It seems a long time to wait to reject you mate...

    Yeah someone I met at the interviews and kept in touch with got an email from them saying they would hear last week (w/c 9 Feb) about their result and they got rejected and given feedback. Did you receive that email? I didn't get that email that's why I don't understand what's happening...

    I did receive that email regarding 9 Feb.
    It could be that they give a period of time between your interview and your results. So, it could be that your interview is more recent?
    Or maybe your application status changed on the careers portal?

    No change in my application status and I checked my correspondence on the portal and nothing from Roths after my interview... had my int 26 February and they said they would get back to me in 2 weeks. 3 weeks now and I still don't know what's happening... Lol

    Another guy I kept in touch with from the interviews didn't receive that email either...

    I honestly wouldn't be too concern. The email is very brief and just explained that interviews are being conducted. We are all playing the waiting game...perhaps you could try to contact them directly.
