    Do you get the verbal right away if you've passed or do you have to wait some time?
    If you passed the SJT they will usually come back to you within 2-3 days and will send you a Verbal test. Hope that helps

    Thanks for advice. Can you think of any BBs that definitely hire FT from the street?
    If they are advertising for the position then they will be hiring. e.g. UBS is not advertising for AM FT but they are advertising IBD FT so it means they have filled their AM with interns but have spaces in IBD to recruit.. There are usually more IBD spaces available to non-interns so you are in luck there

    Thanks, just completed mine yesterday. I have no idea what they look for exactly in the SJT (obviously fit), but to be honest.. answering the "Least Likely" is much more straightforward than the "Most Likely", so I guess any rejection at this level shouldn't be something to fret over too much - it just wasn't meant to be..

    There's a wait, however if you pass that the Numerical is instant.

    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.
    That's what I was thinking, but where can I find if bank actually hires and not just put in the brochure / website just to have it?

    Advertising you mean opening position on website?

    I don't think it's the actual article that matters rather more how you articulate your answer to show commercial awareness and industry understanding.

    dilemma, I did markets at a non-bb bank this summer so now, do I apply for markets at BB or something middle office at BB to have a better chance of getting in? Like I feel like my application would be stronger for markets but at the same time its more competitive.. any thoughts?

    For markets it is (i think), IBD it's not.

    Not rotational, you get hired by a specific desk
