I'm in London and I graduated this summer. I've got quite a bit of work experience - I did an SA last year but at areas I wasn't interested/no offer - and I'm currently doing an SA at a MM (S&T).
However, I recently learned that the way they do their graduate scheme, there is very little chance of them having any spaces for the coming September. It's unfortunate because I think I've performed far, far better this time round and my manager has been very positive with feedback etc.
Considering I'm a graduate, what do I do now? Do I apply for FT and/or off-cycle internships? I can't really apply for SA but FT is filled with mainly SA and it seems more and more banks hire their interns. Do off-cycles offer much of an opportunity to start FT? I'm getting worried because many places seem reluctant to hire FT and just do long internships etc.
