    I also think there is some ********ting in here. Like the people who said they got interview with CS. And CS is not reviewing applications before December etc.

    I don't know who said that, but can confirm that CS says screening starts in December. I also know that Barclays tells you quite quickly if you failed or passed the video interview (which, btw, for some people is instead a set of tests, I have no idea on what this distinction is based).

    No, I applied 3 weeks ago and did the test (which in my opinion went well), but status is still "we look forward to reviewing your application". Other people say they got interviews and one guy says he has an offer.

    Did someone manage to solve the problem which prevents you from adding the cover letter to Citi and completing your application? Shall I write to support?

    I am from a target school, so there were a lot of networking events on-campus, where I talked with MDs from Goldman Sachs, Bank of America and Citi for example and I also had informal phone interviews later with them. That is really a great opportunity to learn a lot and to understand the industry better. It´s also nice to mention that in your cover letter later on. I also had an informal interview with an analyst from Morgan Stanley, after asking him over linkedIn. So it´s also possible for non-targets.

    The best thing to do is really reaching out to some alumni. Most of them will be happy to help you.
    So effectivley connect with people on LinkedIn who are traders but also financial graduates (alumni) from your university?

    I'm at an Italian target (Bocconi). They organised several events (like two CS evenings) to meet their bankers. There were 4 days of presentations on campus. Look for people at your uni who had summer/spring internships last year. Find them at events, on linkedin or better through finance clubs. Also relatives, family friends or friends of friends. If you have no ibanker/trader, anyone who works in finance can put you in contact with friends at BBs.

    Nothing at all at your uni?
    If not, I wouldn't worry too much. In my situation I don't think networking was particularly necessary, it may come to use for later (SA, FT) though. Half the bankers I met were not from London but Milan, and I only talked to few seniors (although one was head of Italy for a BB). Some of them remember my face, others surely don't. None is going to push forward my application (leave that for NY and family connections). Talking with them was useful in general to understand more about the bank, to get a feeling of the culture, of different career paths, of the job, etc. Very interesting, perhaps good to write on a CL, but not much more than that. Yet as I said, I named dropped in every application. Maybe it was useless. I can't speak for sure until I have an offer.

    Guys.. Just a quick question regarding Barclays application process.

    In your opinion, what weighs higher in terms of giving sending out an offer from Barclays.. Your video interview performance or your strength of your CV on the application form?

    Many thanks..
