As a preface, please do not mock DB. I'm sure they are still a better bank than what most of your prospects and interns are going to.

Thank you

Dude, you are nervous about an internship from DB. I've actually worked in IB for a while...

As an ex-DB SA, so glad I didn't have to due my internship during a pandemic. Goodluck to everyone.

Check the DB app. Global virtual start date is July 6, gonna be for 4wks. That's literally all anyone knows. We know just as much as the next intern. Not even the analysts I've talked to know what the structure's gonna be like

Yeah idk why either lmao. Literally not a single intern knows, like I've spoken to ~35 employees internally within DB since beginning of April and not a single person even knew when the fuckin start date was until yesterday.

The most HR could provide the interns was that there could potentially be an online case study but even that's not confirmed.

Are you actually gonna follow their format exactly? I was just gonna take my personal info off my resume and put in the division I'm working at within the bank.

Yeah. The way they phrased it seems weird given that there aren't even going to be rotations/desks but they want to use this as a way to evaluate interns and show our accomplishments. Sounds dumb but are they going to use this as a way to figure out how to differentiate people?
Also didn't we already submit our CV two months ago during onboarding? Whats the point of submitting this again

Might as well just be proactive and spend 30 minutes doinh it instead of not do it and then have HR have to contact you and ask why you didn't

did they take back the email? im in apac and (finally) received the msg yesterday, but no callback

Lmao what is taking them so long to send the offer letter if it's just to extend the dates. Are people that need to figure out work authorization gonna have enough time with just a couple of days? Could they be adding more pay or guaranyeed FT?

Intern in IB - Ind:

Possibility of auto ft or increase in pay?

auto ft: basically zero chance since there's no way they wont first make a huge PR show out of this like what Citi did before amending contracts

full pay: same logic but slightly higher chance i guess? No reason they won't announce it first, also doesn't make sense for them to backtrack, looks bad on HR

its probably just gonna be a couple paragraphs about how due to circumstances the program has now been reduced to 4wks w/ 4wks pay

yup, I sent a query to HR and they said that we can ignore those links as they'll be filled after we officially join DB

I just got the email with all of the information. Altho the link that's supposed to access the token doesn't work so I had to email HR

Do we have a Groupme or groupchat going? If not I am happy to create one - i think it would be helpful going into the internship.

imo probably better to just wait until the internship starts. you prob dont want randoms joining the group chat. the platform will probably have some chat/forum function anyways

Anyone else having trouble logging into dbRAS web.db? In prior emails we were told to hold off on this step until July 6 but it looks like you have enough information to sign in now, if you got the dbRAS token

Yeah I've been trying all morning and I can't get it to work. They mentioned they'll create our profiles Monday morning so maybe that is why the current dbRAS website isn't working. But they also included that set up process in the DocuSign stuff so I'm really confused whether to wait or not

After I log in, it says
Token Resync Required. Please enter an additional token code to continue.

Did anyone else have this problem?

I also can't get it to work. What's even more frustrating is the support numbers and websites don't even work.

Yeah the hour that they have reserved for IT tomorrow will forsure get extended to 2 hours. Also does anyone think that an intern groupie of some sort will be created within the next few days?

Okay I was able to get through. I realized you have to click on the arrow at the bottom of the app after typing in your PIN. But now I can't log into the Citrix virtual desktop. Says my account is disabled.

Really hoping these tech issues are addressed tomorrow morning. It still says my username or password are incorrect for dbRASweb and the tech support numbers require you to have a DB phone number
