    Apologies if this has already been answered or seem very obvious, but for the barclays application did people just upload your C.V., or did you do a cover letter and stuff as well? Its just odd as the section only says 'Upload your c.v.' but in brackets below in mentions cover letter, references, etc.
    - thanks for any advice.
    Check back a few pages, also useful advice on Barclay's interview.

    Lazard sent. Nice and straight forward.

    Don't make the mistake thinking cover letter and answers to motivational questions are two different things, they want you to answer them within the cover letter.

    Applied to all places but have only heard back from ICAP so far, hopefully the "no news is good news" theory is correct.

    It was an interview, and I heard back after about a week of applying in late October.

    Well done mate. Your hard work should pay off. If I were you if you have no interest in spending 2+ years in the back office and risking not making it to trading only crude don't bother applying their application is so long and you can;t save it once you have started.
