    Has anybody else not heard back from barclays wealth? I would have thought they would have finished recruiting by now, in which case I'm surprised rejections havent been sent.

    They converted a LOT of their interns this year (28/29 out of 32 got offers). Sorry I realise this doesn't answer your question at all.

    They've taken on some absolute retards this year apparently, take it as a compliment that they turned you down.

    Really? How bizarre. When did this happen? And is this for grad scheme or internship? Thanks

    My housemate worked there during the summer, there was even a girl from The Open Uni at a grad event he went to recently.

    Since when did going to The Open Uni disqualify someone from getting a grad job? If you were good enough and met their requirements, they would have called you. If they don't/didn't, either they're not recruiting, or you didn't meet whatever criteria they were looking for. Simple as that. Move on.

    If they did infact hire 29 people from the summer programme, I would be very surprised if they returned to the grad circuit for more hires.

    They were expanding quite aggressively in the post-boom UK (near-EMEA) market trying to peel off disenchanted buisness from more established players. With the ongoing problems with PIIGS, I don't think they are seeing enough fees to justify such an expansion.

    Perhaps, but they may just be late starting. I haven't heard any whispers of their SA recruiting progress whatsoever bar guys who are still waiting to hear back, there may be hope yet! Who else are you still waiting to hear from?

    This is so late considering Bar Cap start very very early.

    Rejected by HSBC and MS, waiting for BoAML, Bar Wealth. No call for GS 1st round so I assume rejection there.

    You?

    Rejected by HSBC (as I'm not fluent in 3 languages, apparently) and Deutsche (applied fairly late). GS first round coming up (only one so far).

    Still waiting to hear from MS, BoAML and BW. Also applied to Fidelity on deadline day, no word. Hopefully they are not all just prolonged rejections in the post... sigh
