    If you begin a cover letter with Dear X recruitment team, do you sign it with yours sincerely or faithfully. ?
    I signed one with sincerely and online it says unless you have the specific name, do faithfully?
    I always do faithfully although I agree that these cover letters will be screened so quickly probably no one will notice.

    Yeah as Comm says, nobody actually reads your cover letter. It's just to deter lazy people from shooting their CV out to everyone.

    Did you manage to sort this out? I'm having the same problem, I can't use the email I used to apply for spring weeks last year.
    They replied a couple of days ago telling me "make sure you're using our new portal. If any other problem arises, let us know".

    I replied again to them on the same day that I was using the right portal and everything but still I had that issue. No further reply yet.

    Does anybody know good resources to find past deals banks have worked on?

    I've been watching the M&A thing on Reuters and have FT, but struggling to find previous deals

    Same issue here. My mate used to let me use his Merger Market subscription but its expired now. If you can get access to it, by far the best resource going.

    Just finished Lazard situational judgement and haven't received verbal/numerical invites yet. Is it a bad sign or does it usually take a while?

    This probably won't generate a response but has anyone received a rejection after completing MS tests?

    I feel as thought they take everything into consideration and do not have a threshold. And if they do, they don't reject you until they've finished recruiting.

    I have v little experience and no idea what they'd want, but in my app I listed five areas of particular interest then just put the 'I'd be happy anywhere option at the end'. Seemed reasonable at the time.

    I didn't feel like my test went brill but I haven't been rejected yet. I vaguely remember someone posted several dozen pages back saying they were rejected after three days though.
