We record many performance statistics during games to determine the top performers from our events.
Benefits to Students
We can guarantee that there are no risks from taking part in our competition. Through our positive-only referral policy, we can ensure that you have nothing to lose by taking part.
When you take part in a specific company trading event, the company hosting the event knows that you are taking part. They will store your performance in their database and refer back to it during their recruitment process.
On pressuretrade.com, only good performances are passed on to recruiters. If you do not perform so well, recruiters won't receive your performance statistics and you still benefit from the two hour experience which gives you an insight as to what to expect in several Investment Banks' assessment centres.
Furthermore, you could be referred to several organisations, instead of just one!
PTL Clients & Case Study
'PTL Clients' are the recruiters in prestigious companies who have accepted to receive referrals from Pressure Trade Limited. The companies, whom we will be referring our top performers from the competition to, spread across many different industries with challenging roles which are suitable for candidates who are good with numbers and good at Pressure Trade.
As a top performer, you could be referred for a Sales & Trading position within an Investment Bank, a Trading position within a large Oil & Gas firm, an Actuarial role within an Insurance Company, a Broker position within a Brokerage Firm and more. We just need the statistics from your performance to provide evidence for our positive referral case...
Competition Last Year
Our competition held last year was considered a huge success as we identified many extremely talented individuals and our anonymous feedback forms showed high scores for enjoyability of event and enjoyability of games played during events by participants.
All our events ran smoothly and time flew by whilst students competed for the top spots in order to become a top performer.
Some of our events had over 100 students participating!
Ask a Question
Are you a student at one of the universities taking part?
We have PTL sub teams at each and every university. The operations officer of that team should be your first point of contact if you have any questions about your event. However, if you are not able to easily find who this is or would prefer to contact us direct, please visit our Contact page...
