there is nothing on planet earth i hate more

…... than doing online application forms.

Dont mind the boring bits – its the open ended questions – eg. writing a bloody essay on "why you want to work for X", "what extracurricular activities have you been involved in that you think we would be interested in hearing about?" or tougher still "given the current market conditions, what you do you think X should do to remain competitive?". Im not a strategy expert who knows the company inside out – what chance do I have ??

plus I have one to do for Deutsche Bank. Like tonight. :'(

And I'm swiftly coming to the conclusion I dont want to work for a city firm – want a nice hours, geeky job somewhere. Or maybe a PhD. But all after my lovely Gap year. Though I need to know what I'm doing this summer before I can plan anything !!!! It's driving me insane…....

  2. Ah – you see, it's at this point I'm so glad I dropped out.
    Sorry – that doesn't help you at all, but it does make me feel slightly better about the fact I don't have a degree…

    Good luck though – and keep us posted :)
