Don't think they've sent 1st rounds yet. Did you receive a "Stay connected" email yesterday saying that your application was under consideration?

Spoke to a recruiter there and they said for research its apply online -> video interview -> AC. So not quite IB, but possible not to have a phone interview.

Hows it going monkeys.

Just got my UBS rejection - must have failed the Kobayashi Maru or whatever tf that numerical test was.

Side note: anyone else get "less suited for this division" on the MS sjw? Is that auto dinge or nah?

  • Prospect in IB - Ind
Sep 23, 2020 - 1:25pm

Yeah I haven't got dinged yet. But I assume that I'll get a rejection because of that
