Was recruiting for 2023 SA London unusually hard this year?
I've applied to about 20 banks in London for 2023 SA positions in August/September and only ended up with 2 first-round interviews. I am at a top 5 European school with excellent grades. Prior internship at 2 PE firms and a. I thought that my profile would result in at least a few more first-round interviews. Trying to figure out whether my applications suck or whether this year was extremely difficult in recruiting for London. What's your opinion on this year's recruiting for 2023 SA positions in London?
