I have attended so far three Investment bank assessment centres (DB, Barcap, ML) and have made it through two of them and still waiting results for the third one. Anyways… just wanted to give some casual tips…
These three sources really really helped me:-
- Wikijob - Yes… this website you are reading right now! Read ‘ALL’ the forum topics regarding which bank you got the A.C. for! You will get a general overview of whats gonna happen.
- How to Succeed At an Assessment Centre - Harry Tolley, Robert Wood. This book gives details on all types of exercises at any A.C. Very helpful.
- Talk to people who are working at Investment Banks. Catch them at career talks/fairs or just anywhere. You will really get the insider information of whats happening in the banks right now which you wont find anywhere in the internet.
Anyways… these are the tips i though which is different from all the other tips available in wikijob forums… Good luck to all who are attending assessment centres.
