    Barclays have taken a one way ticket on the banter bus this year. They don't ask for a CV, cover letter or even what the size of your left testicles is. They wanted to remove bias from the early rounds so instead they replaced it with two banter filled 'business insights' rounds. Enjoy

    I had 5 days to do the Barclays' business insight stage 1 and after 4 it said my time has expired?!

    Does someone have the HR email address? Have been searching on their website but could not find it.
    Same thing happened to me. Sent an email so will wait and see if I get a response.

    Mannheim is not super-target. It has a very good reputation in Germany with all kinds of company presentations including Goldman. I have done an M&A Internship at a 1st Tier Bank and am currently doing my semester abroad at very reputable university.
    How come this statement is so vague haha.. Where are you doing your semester abroad? Where did you do your internship? This is some interesting stuff

    so, if we applied before you (i.e. in August) and still didn't get video interview, does that mean we are in rejection pile?

    M&A bankers are sort of corporate brokers in the sens that they sell and buy companies for other people.

    Aren't corporate brokers more to do with ECM, they act as the middle man between companies and their shareholders.

    from what I understand they just provide updates to their corporate clients on investor views and market conditions.

    mainly a UK thing, but the aim is to try to develop the relationship with the client

    not sure whether its an ECM thing, at MS you get some bankers who work in UK coverage but at the same time act as corporate brokers
