    Does anyone know what BlackRock's 'virtual cover letter invitation' is about? It doesn't seem to be a link to upload a cover letter because when I sign in, it has a button with 'Start Interview' on it? What is this? Is this a video interview? If so, why is even called a 'virtual cover letter'?
    It is essentially a video interview, they use this instead of numerical tests.

    How you find the test? I answered all the questions but guess on two :/. Hoping for 15/16.
    I cant recall how i did, i try to not be optimistic about these things, helps soften the blow when i get rejected haha, but from what I can remember, I managed to finish it, with only guessing 1 or 2 answers too. If we haven't got an automatic rejection already (i did mine around 2 weeks ago), surely we must have passed?

    Does UBS definitely not have a logical test anymore? If so, I'll probably apply. Is it cover letter or motivational questions for the application?

    Thanks

    No CV or CL, just questions. You have to enter your work experience manually (I think only your top three) and then answer four questions.

    Is MS just numerical or do they send you more if you pass the numerical?

    Still a decent bank, still doing the same stuff, still getting paid well.. and you can always move up the food chain if you're good, or stick around if you make money.

    i mean for those looking for a long term career in banking,

    start at rbc, lateral over to a better bank, repeat, repeat, and eventually you'll find that you are in a pretty dam good position.

    Why is that?

    why?
    Don't get me wrong, it's still ib - but I go to a target and if I only got RBC it'd be seen as little better than selling butties at greggs. Plus I already tasted BB on my spring week, it's moreish.
    Plus in reference to an earlier comment, not sure I want a long term career in banking chasing the name for my cv that gets me in a better job
