I’m moving to London from the United States in a week and I’m looking to participate in this year’s bank recruiting process. Does anyone have any very basic advice on the process? I’m assuming that it’s rather different from our recruiting process here in the States.
Here are a few questions I have:
When does the process begin? I’m assuming sometime in August
How is the recruiting process arranged? How many interviews (phone/in person), what types of tests are administered?
How do firms view foreign candidates? (I’m coming from a top American University)
How much value does previous experience provide (I’ve spent my last two summer’s interning in research, one summer was with Goldman Sachs)
If you have any other advice on the process please feel free to comment.
