    That's made me more nervous because I live in essex and can only apply for the London roles.
    dont worry, get your application in asap, and if you get through, youll have a much bigger chance of getting a london role

    Im not entirely sure, but I dont think there is a Birmingham office. If you go on the website, it will say where the locations are.
    In reply to sleekchic, I applied to Marketing, Sales and Finance but unfortauntely as I was so late I didnt get any of these Im now in software development which is based in Hursley, Winchester. Also, I just went on the website and you now get £15k salary

    So you had to move to Winchester

    Did you already have relatives there or did you have to find accomodation yourself?

    How much was the salary last year?

    It can sometimes take a good while to get a reply, espically at this stage. I've been told it can take up to two weeks.
    I applied sometime ago and haven't heard back. I think I may leave it a bit longer and then contact them.

    Clements, did you find out about Deloitte?

    yup, I had to move out... had to find accomodation myself so thats a chunk out of my salary
    best thing is obviously to live at home, but then again the experience you gain by moving out is priceless. I can now cook, clean and am more independent :P it also prepares you really well for uni, this is a lot harder than uni as you wont have a million other people to talk to. Although some of the futures this year got a house together in southampton (5 of them) which is quite nice. My salary is £13.5k

    Not yet. How long did it take them to get back to you about interviews?

    Its a reallly longgggg feeling process. But when you think about it, its not that bad. Its just because you are waiting for something you want.

    I sat my tests on a Monday over two weeks ago (27th Oct) and I have just today, at 5pm been given my date for an interview which is two weeks away. So from doing tests and to the interview, it is about a whole month! Which is unfortunately standard around this time the Graduate Recruitment person told me, because it is so busy. But there are still alot of places left, so its fine. They wouldn't have accepted your application if they didn't have enough places. I was told to be calm and wait, rather than be constantly "omg where is my response" because they tend to value your application less. I would give it until monday, then start emailing. Good luck

    Yeah, I won't be emailing them. It's only IBM I've had to email 2 or 3 times about the masses of errors with the application site.

    God I know. I found it terrible. I was similar to you, I entered soooooo much and then it was all gone. I got it sorted though (I hope), but i've still not heard anything. Good luck and let me know if you hear anything from either. :]

    As in I filled in that my area of interest was finance. And when I review my app, it is no longer there! It is showing no area of interest. It's just blank.
