    I just applied with an alternative e-mail address btw x)
    Be careful tho, I heard that if you apply with two different email addresses to the same firm they could see your application as "duplicate" and reject it

    When you send an application off, do the recruitment team receive that application there and then?

    I've accidentally re-submitted one of my applications after logging into the company's website to check it's status - the 'date of application' has changed to todays date and now I'm worried that a wrong version of the application has been submitted.

    That's true, though it is usually montioned.
    Citi doesn't state anyhing in their TOS, so this should not be the case!
    I think there's just an error with their system (my old account had an username, not an email to login, it's totally different!)

    What did people in final year decide to do about Barclays? Summer or off-cycle?

    Even if you haven't applied since last year? Which banks state that? I have only seen it for Credit Suisse

    hopefully to have them highlight my resume to HR so i can get an ITW.

    Barclays was approx 40% for IBD. Morgan Stanley was approx 65% for S&T from speaking to friends.

    I got quite a few first rounds last year with pretty much no networking. I think it's more a US thing but absolutely definitely helps if you have a good relationship, especially if you can highlight it on your application.

    Definitely get them sent off in September. It's not worth delaying them just in the hope some person will fast track your application to first round interview. If you're a good candidate (plenty of experience/things to talk about and good course/university etc) you'll make it through to the first round interview usually. You can always network throughout October and then name drop in interviews/assessment centres.

    Up to you mate really. If networking beforehand is important to you, then go for it, just be mindful of when deadlines are and if others are already quite advanced in the process.

    Certainly doesn't hurt to network.

    EDIT: echo everyone else, the online application system here makes it easier to get through without networking as much.

    have you looked at the positions available online? I can only see 2 roles available - 'banking off cycle internship' and 'quant analytics off cycle'.

    Do you know whether they are doing separate IBD vs S&T positions or is everything bundled into the 'banking off cycle internship' and we just apply for that lol
