Citibank and Barclays

I had two recruitment talks in NTU in the last week from Citibank and Barclays. Nothing personal about the reviews that I will be doing here, but just an opinion of mine.

It was well run, they have very good speakers who shared their working experiences with the audience. The impression I get is that Citibank have very committed and talented people who goes all out to get the job done. They have very good senior management who in turn help to develop very capable future management.

Even during the networking sessions, one of the managers even gave me and my friends his name card and told us to refer any one that we know who are looking for jobs. They are actively doing their jobs! Going the extra mile!

Speakers weren't as good and the people do not really know much about what other people in company are doing. Moreover, I feel that they are not as professional when it comes to giving a recruitment talk. However this does not reflect the capability of the company.

I heard that people in this company work very hard, and although its a tough company to work in, if you like challenges, this is the place to be. Also, after talking to a trader from Barclays, it seems that the job is something I might want to do.

They are offering almost everything. But the highlight is the management associate program. Also,think the closing date for registration for it is 1st Sep.


As far as those wall street banksters go. I say lets exchange those three piece suits and briefcases for a good pick a shovel a bucket and some pin stripes.
