    Nice, was it just an email confirmation yes? I don't think there is a way of seeing a 'view communications' or anything like that for their portal.

    Have never posted here, but I'm also in the process of applying for spring weeks.

    I think I have completely screwed up my Barclays online interview. Speaking to a laptop without anybody listening (e.g. Skype) just felt too weird and I couldn't express myself properly. I kept getting stuck at every question .-.

    Thanks



    Also have any of the applications got time limits as in once you click start and begin entering in your details you need to finish and upload your cover letter by a certain point

    I can confirm this is 100% BS.

    I went to a Blackrock event two weeks ago and their Head of EMEA recruiting confirmed themself their Spring programme is not open yet.

    And they are not reviewing applications till February.

    My bad, you're obviously not talking BS. But that makes no sense for me, two weeks ago they said they're opening in the next couple of weeks (i.e I guess around now).

    Find it hard to believe their 2017 Spring is already shut.

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

    The provider recommends you dress as if you were going to a face to face interview.

    It was quite hard to find. I had luck, but that doesn´t matter anyway, because I pretty screwed up the video interview, because it wasn´t clear to me that it was one, like you can see in the picture it said "virtual cover letter", so I thought I only have to fill in some things and when I realized that it is an video interview it was too late to go back and I was totally unprepared and didn´t heard back since.

    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 have written to support and got no helpful response, but probably good if you also try anyway..

    I can confirm BlackRock had their spring insight programme applications opened for a very short period of time few weeks ago. I think it was only opened for a day (i think it was a technical error) as they asked you before you opened application the following: Are you set to graduate in 2017? So i thought it is a typo since they just opened so i did not apply and wanted to apply the next day and it was closed already.

    This isn't true, they opened it initially for a bit but they will re-open it.
