Hey Guest, It's TCLA's birthday today - we turn 6! I just wanted to say a thank you for being a part of our community. I feel very lucky that you choose to spend your time here - and we don't take it for granted. Thank you for helping to make our community special.
I only have his All you Need to Know about the City book. Would you recommend the Commercial Awareness book too?
None so far (sadly :() for this round! I've decided to focus on Spring/Summer vacation scheme applications now, hopefully with a bit more luck!
Reading up on the commercial stories for me because I struggle with that the most. I also try to go through technical commercial stuff on investopedia although I can easily get quite lost in there.
My preparation usually involves creating a large document with a list of possible interview...
I had this question at my Jones Day interview! I was quite flustered and came out with a terrible answer, so I've since prepared something better about personal development, helping others, reaching a goal etc.
That was helpful thank you!
I was going to ask about the non academic interests but I see what you mean it's just another way of referring to extra curricular activities.
That second part of question 3 I'm also unsure on so if anyone has any thoughts I'd be keen to hear that too!
Agreed. On guys I think a shirt and trousers/chinos also technically counts as smart casual. You could probably past with it for these types of events, but it's not really ideal.
Isn't there also such a thing as business casual?
I think it's fine if you feel you went into enough depth in your open day application for those two reasons. Nothing has changed since the open day to warrant you changing them. (Unless you're like me and think your applications are terrible whenever you review them ::p)
Yep I think so too! I could concentrate on writing good applications and send many more off if I didn't have to do it after work or on weekends.
One thing I'm worried about is being asked in an interview what I've been doing if I'm not workng. Do you have any idea of how you would phrase an answer?
