    anyone applied to bnp paribas??/ and what did you write for the essay??
    I did. I answered the essay question explaining what I believe is going to be the next bubble.

    No one is going to give you an elaborated answer cause the question is there to find out what you think. Not what someone else suggested you to think about.

    Your obsessed with me. The unsolicited private messages, the multiple messages that you've left on my profile (which I have deleted), your signature, and the fact that you constantly try to interact with me on the forums is evidence that you take me seriously.

    If you hadn't noticed I've been ignoring you, that's because I don't take YOU seriously. Hopefully you'll take the hint and this will be our last interaction.

    Just for the record, you spelt 'you're' wrong.

    Just took the test for Citi Quest and now want to wish everyone best of luck with it.

    As previous posts sort of suggest it is much harder than SHL or Kenexa simply due to the volume of data to process for the answers (you barely have to touch a calculator as it is not difficult maths)....just volume. Mind you this is personal opinion so maybe im just retarded. Dont be fooled by the practice questions though....absolute joke questions.

    If i score 25% i will be lucky....absolute mind FUC*

    best of luck

    Agreed, it's not worth the effort.

    Not heard anything for a while, but given that I applied to most places end of Nov/early Dec and with all the holidays the past week it's not surprising.

    Not to sound like a know it all, but including future accomplishments on a CV is a huge faux pas.
    This. Definitely work it into the cover letter. Talk about how you are very interested in IB and thus looked for work experience and secured it, and what you plan to learn from it etc. Never put future activities on a CV though.

    When did you take the verbal?

    Also SHL have a practice test. CS also ask for a verbal so if you are applying there it might be worth taking the practice.

    As in, "I was rejected 10 mins ago"? When did you actually take the verbal for BarCap?

    Also, in regard to your other question, Citi is only a numerical- I think.
