Graduate insight into securing a Spring week with Deutsche Bank

Created on 8 Feb 2018

Bright Network member Mohammed is currently studying Economics & Geography at LSE and, after attending our annual BN Festival, has landed himself a spring week at global firm Deutsche Bank. Read below to find out what Mohammed had to say about the whole process.

Why did you choose this firm and this role?

Having completed the year 13 programme called I Have A Dream, I genuinely enjoyed being a part of Deutsche Bank. The people were lovely and there is a lot of change going on at the bank which will create new challenges for me in my work.

What was the toughest part of the application process? And your favourite part?

The interview process was the most difficult. It consisted of two 30-minute interviews with Vice Presidents from Capital Markets and Investment Banking. My favourite part was getting a call from the HR team informing me of the offer!

Were you surprised by anything in the process?

How easy going the interviewers were. I had a lovely conversation with them and was able to learn much more about the Bank.

What three top tips would you give your fellow Bright Network members?

Firstly, I would say to apply to as many spring weeks as you can to increase your chances. Also, don't rush and apply too early, best period is between October and November. And lastly, try applying to the same division to make the application process easier.

What was the toughest question you faced at interview?
