I have been tempting to apply for the Citi IT Programme and I have been hearing a lot of things about them.
A very close friend of mine has recently made an application for the Citi Graduate IT Programme and his application has been rejected. When he queried, he was told that his covering letter was too general. But in actual reality he applied to Citi last year and he was invited to do an online test. In the end, he had to withdrew his application as he was offered a place on a masters programme with LSE. Now, he submitted a similar covering letter and he is unsuccessful. Bye the way, he has 360 UCAS points, plus a first class degree in technology. And guess what he gets rejected by Citi.
I meet their entry requirements, but I am undecided right now
Do you guys think whether it is worth applying for the Citi IT Programme?
Your suggestions/comments would be deeply appreciated.
