    Hey everyone,

    I'm currently filling my GS application form and for the cover letter section it states "Please state your spring dates in the cover letter box below". Does this mean i have to fit the start and end date of the spring week program into the 300 words?

    Also where can I find the exact dates? I mean i found them for this year, but I am not really sure what they are next year.

    Thanks/.

    I thought it meant what dates your Easter holidays are?

    You get what they like to call your 'owner'. They'll give you a collar to wear and have a leash that comes with it.

    Happy interning.

    I'm pretty sure i'll be going for less than that. I've been headhutned by a company and they want me to go for DB, MS,GS, UBS, JPM, and BC. I will definitely go for those. If I can do more then I will but I think researching 13 companies and dealing with technical questions, keeping up to date with the markets and my degree will be a bit too much for me. I don't need the aggravation tbh.

    Well it's true THEY contacted ME . According to wikipedia: Headhunter is an informal name for an employment recruiter, sometimes referred to as executive searcher.

    Hahahaha a company headhunting someone who's applying for spring weeks a.k.a has not even worked in the financial world yet. Love the trolling.

    lol I was thinking you've been quite alright with your posts lately which was a pleasant surprise I must say.

    I should have known this sort of stuff was due soon enough. Lucky guy, you're probably the only person in the country who gets wined and dined by headhunters for the sake of a spring internship :rolleyes:
