Hi folks,

Applied to a bunch of BB back in Aug/Sept for their 2020 intakes in Dubai (Both Off-cycle and Graduate programs).

Haven't heard anything back from them. Probably dead shot. But would love to have some insights from other members who are familiar with recruiting in MENA region.

Cheers.

how can you done that?

Hey mate! I applied for couple of the internship positions open at major B.B banks. Still waiting to hear something ,But I was rejected from Citi bank recently.

Nov 4, 2019

Yup, got rejected by CIti as well. Silence from GS, CS, Barclays and MS. Got dinged by UBS, but then got an email from HR informing they've restored my application and are reviewing it.

Gave video interviews for EMEA location UBS, JPM and BofA. Been a month since i gave video interview for UBS. wrote them an email and received a response that they have received lots of applications. Anybody in the same boat?

Dec 3, 2019

Hey, I did give my video interview for JPM. Any updates on that ?

Dec 4, 2019

JPM has openings? Internships or full-time?

Dec 5, 2019

No updates. Status says "Under consideration", which has been since a month. What abt you?

Dec 4, 2019

JPM had openings mate!, so it seems they weren't hiring full time. So recently they closed the internship opportunity meant for 6 months.

Could you share a bit about your process with them? Interested in applying to the region next year but not too sure how recruiting works there. Are you undergrad?

Dec 6, 2019

Thanks for headsup, well I guess I was late for the party and they closed the applications before I applied.

Dec 6, 2019

What is open at the moment?

UBS
Barclays
BAML

anything else I am missing? Anything on GS/MS?

Dec 6, 2019

I got dinged by MS today. Heard nothing from GS but one guy commented above that he got interviews from GS.

Dec 6, 2019

Sorry to hear about MS. Latest info I have is that they can take 2/3 interns in Jan preferably for 6 months

Any news from JP Morgan, UBS off cycle? Been waiting for almost two months for JP Morgan. There is no contact for the recruiter also.

Dec 17, 2019

I spoke with one VP from JPM in Dubai and he said they don't have any spots left (that was like 1-1.5 months ago).

UBS started the interview process, I believe some folks have interview this week.

For UBS, I'm aware. But JP Morgan, that's weird. I applied in November and gave hirevue and since then it has been under consideration. Well i guess, I can forget about JPM. Thanks for the info.

I'm curious: if you apply to a position in Dubai/Abu Dhabi but are studying in the UK, where do you do your AC?

Surely they won't fly you out to the middle east so do you just do them in London?

Jan 12, 2020

probably video conferencing at London offices.
