    Hi guys,

    I am currently filling out the Barclays Summer Internship application for Commercial Banking. There is this one question where it says:

    "Given current circumstances what steps could be taken to address the issues Barclays face and why would you recommend these?"

    Do you think I could talk about Barclays deferring bonuses? Or should I talk about their newly acquired licence for their Canada branch?

    Any votes as to which one's more substantial?

    (The first one IMO at the mo )

    ps. Or does the "current circumstances" imply the current economic doom and gloom? I'm confused now O_O

    Perhaps I could also incorporate the effects of the new "Obama" policies in there!
