    Why does the deutsche bank spring week have corporate finance and IT program in one application? I only want to apply for corporate finance?

    Is anyone having problems with the UBS website? I'm getting a cookies error on two different laptops, yet clearly some of you have been able to apply, and get rejected already.

    If motivation is purely wanting the best chance of IB, it pretty much is.
    Yeah it pretty much isn't though, so that's a shame. They're much more concerned by experience and potential, not a meaningless "oh, but he went to UCL!"

    Need help guys.

    Critique my CV: This is essentially what I've been sending to banks, this sort of layout and content:

    I haven't space to include anymore experience, albeit I've done a Entrerenuer challenge which I think would add great value. What can be removed?



    I still have DB, GS, BP to send, is there any improvements that could be made? Did I do anything majorly wrong. The relevant sections have been cut to conceal identity.

    Why not to write "i am santa Claus", too?

    That's a factor.

    Albeit, cetaris paribus UCL > Manchester. You disagreeing doesn't change reality. No doubt Manchester's great, nonetheless. I have a friend there doing Chem Eng.

    For IB however, relative to Manchester, UCL students are heavily targeted.

    Clearly a gag. He's already got a summer internship at Deloitte.

    However, my earlier question does still stand; why can't I get onto the UBS application page?

    I would advise to remove the Islamic part of the societies, some people do discriminate and it could worsen your chances.

    Or maybe no one knows the answer to your question? I think you might make your own thread as it's most likely to be viewed by people who know the answer.

    Just fixed that for you. Investment banks are usually quite meticulous - I wouldn't want you to have written that in a cover letter.

    Of course I am not debating that either of them are good or not so good universities, but the fact that banks change their graduate employment strategies on a yearly basis, coupled with UCL really being no much better than Manchester, means that choosing one university on the basis of "it's a target" is not only flawed but also very illogical.

    If Manchester is better for Chem Eng than UCL, then you go to Manchester. No if's, no but's, no coconuts.

    Unsure why the term would ever be needed in a cover letter but whatever helps you sleep at night.

    I think your CV is good, you defo demonstrated a lot of skills. But I don't really see much experience of you working in a team.... Maybe you should try and include that, becos that's something I think banks will look for. Also, I don't think you need to put the reference part at the end, waste of space imo....if they need it they will ask anyway!
    SocGen work experience, second bullet point & last bullet point?

    For the rest.. led teams = essentially working with right?
