    Don't really see how an SJT is a good judge of fit...

    Hi everyone, I'm finishing my masters in 2017 and just finished a placement year in a big french bank in Paris (in IB though in in M&A but in Financing). I believe I have enough experience to go for graduate/FT programs (IBD in London), but I spoke with some analysts/associates in BBs and they all told me that 99.9% of FT hires are coming from summer programs. I can extend my masters till 2018, so it's not a problem to put in CV that i'm a penultimate year student, but I don't want to graduate that late (my MSc will take me 4 years then!).

    Do you think it's a good idea to go straight for FT despite having 0.01% chance (or maybe you know some BB that are actually hiring from the street), or still better go for summer and then count on early placement?

    Thanks!

    Does anybody know will final year under grad students applying for SI with Credit Suisse be considered? Just wondering where CS stand on this as some banks are ok with it even though they state penultimate students only.

    CS are strict, if you are final year you have to go for FT (it does not even let you register for a summer position if you are in final year)

    My verdict, 5 years down the line you are gonna be in a different bank and different team/divisions so I personally do not see the point of doing that many years of extra education and summer internships just to land that role that you want in BB... So I am going mainly straight for FT and a few summer applications to play it safe (up to you)

    I talked to an HR analyst of theirs and she told me that you can apply for a SI only if you are defo going to do master the year after. If you are not going to do a master then you can apply for an autumn internship starting in September for 10 weeks.

    Bad luck man. Do you think there was a screening beforehand or did it come through straight away?
    The screening is beforehand. If you pass the SJT , the Verbal is sent.

    No - some banks computer systems can detect the same candidate reapplying under a different user/address.

    really wouldn't recommend that if I'm being honest, it can land you in serious hot water if caught.*
    I know a friend that did it for Credit Suisse and got banned completely from any further applications ever so yeah just try another company and practice the tests as much as poss ! *

    Thanks for advice. Can you think of any BBs that definitely hire FT from the street?

    Do you get the verbal right away if you've passed or do you have to wait some time?

    Yes
    You can easily diversify then. Apply for FT in banks which usually hire graduates with previous experience, and apply for SA in banks with less probability of hiring graduates. If you land in only SA in the process, you can see later to defer or not.
