    Really? Surely there will be minimal places considering some firms didnt even open their graduate recruiting last year? Especially in S&T?

    all slots, or 95% will be filled by summer interns, everything else is bs. of course the hr ladies say now that they are on the pull but at the end only the interns get the cream. no way for external candidates.

    All firms will be hiring. The number of places available, or the chances of getting in, is a totally different matter.

    i dont think firms will hire in 2009. once fears of a w shaped recovery go away, we will expect firms hiring again but in mid 2010 rather than end of 2009. atm most of the hiring is at the senior level.

    There's been an upturn in the markets and in volumes... it's pretty intuitive.

    On a side note, Lyle has a penchant for 4-button suits and therefore shouldn't be trusted.

    I wouldn't expect a return to 2007 numbers. That just isn't going to happen. It's a totally different ballgame now, the entire industry has shrunk pretty dramatically.

    There'll be more hires than this year just gone, but not by much. Your best bet is to get in through an internship. In theory all banks want to fill their grad scheme with interns and then not have to worry about final year graduate recruitment.

    I have spoken to several HR departments around city about this topic. General feedback is that there is room at most places for a few hires. Some large banks admitted they hired too small an internship class and will therefore need to recruit more. However for most places these non-intern hires will probably be barely into double figures, if not less.

    Several boutique firms are also looking for new people, one or two at the most and highly selective.

    What're you doing this year jjpp? Didn't you do an M&A internship?
