    I still honestly can't believe their whole process is application -> video interview -> offer.

    How exactly did you network with traders?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    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.

    When doing cover letters, who do you address it to? Do you have to find a HR person in the bank from Linkedin and address it to them?

    Has anyone seen this Amplify trading? Just curious if its one of those pay loads and get nothing. Or is it actually recognised and gives you potential?
    Nothing you pay for will equate to anything near experience you successfully applied for.

    I agree. I can't stress enough the importance of networking.

    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).
