    What happens?? Normally they have a code already inserted in the top right corner. Then you just click on start interview
    I just get this message every time.

    The interview is currently unavailable.


    This interview error has been reported to Barclays and we are working to resolve the issue. Please try again at a later time.

    For additional questions, please contact HireVue Customer Support at 1-800-655-4106 ext 1.

    On the baml spring week application it says (maximum of two) for listing work experience and extracurriculars, surely we can list more than that?

    Most applicants have just started university. I doubt many people have much relevant work experience and EC's. If people characterize putting your piggy bank money into some stocks as work experience I can only imagine what kind of ******** these recruitment teams have to read through.

    I'm going to be applying for around 12 banks/wealth managements firms this month. Would you guys send like one off every few days, or pile them all up and send them all off in 2 weeks? Not sure what the logic is here.

    Well the top candidates have done plenty before university and some are in their second year (including me), plus they ask for no CV so what else are they meant to base the quality of the candidate with?

    It doesn't even stop you putting more than two either.

    I don't think experience from before uni barely adds much value unless it's a part of your gap year. Moreover, experience that relates to the world of finance is even more rare amongst first-year candidates.

    They base their decision on your SJT test result and the two questions you're supposed to answer later on.

    I don't think so. I just think that banks want to "cut to the chase" and save time from reading about the 17 student organisations that you're president of etc. We all know it's ******** most of it.

    Situational Judgement Test. Baml gives you something like 22 "scenarios" where you have to respond how you would react. Untimed and ****ing boring.

    No idea why I didn't get SJT considering I've done them ahah, It's annoying when they ask questions and your actual response isn't on there sonyou have to say something that's just similar.

    Basically for anyone who's got this Barclays interviews you have to record yourself, 3 mins at a time, saying answers to 12 questions. A few are multiple choice and don't require recording and one is written.

    why not just take the test yourself and stop trying to gain an unfair advantage? if you don't feel confident enough to get on the programme without help from others, I really don't think it's the industry for you

    It is just silly from people who do the interview without trying to get the questions first. That's how this industry works pal. Investment banking is not about being fair or unfair, if you think that this is the case you will be disappointed after a few weeks. IB is unfair and is about success, no sleep, 18 working hours a day, caginess, money and greed. Welcome to the real world.
