Point72 2022 Winternship

Hi everyone, I applied to this program and have tried to find information on it on WSO, but have not found anything recent. Has recruiting kicked off? What is their recruiting process? What's the quality of the program? Has anyone on this forum been through it? Would appreciate any insights any of you have. Thanks in advance!

Just received an email which asked me to finish a questionaire to be considered for the next round. I am curious what the process is like.

Just completed the survey. I wouldn't think the accepted offer would impact it because I'm pretty sure they already hired interns for summer. I also saw they didn't extend an offer to any of their interns last year lmao.

There's another related chain on the page. From the sounds of it I don't think so. I have almost zero chance anyway so not sweating it lmao.

I am pretty sure the winternship is focused on people who will be applying for FT 2023. I received an email from them a while ago saying the following:

Upon successful completion of this program, participants will have the opportunity to be fast tracked for 2023 full time opportunities.

I also received case one yesterday. How many more cases should we expect?

Considering the case study is identical to the summer analyst one, my guess is that it would be a phone call to debrief the case with the recruiter, followed by an interview with the PM as the final round

Would getting this winter internship lead to a high chance of being placed in the Point72 summer academy next recruiting year?

I assumed this was for FT recruiting, but if it's not then I would guess that it will help. If you did the first case study that they had sent by mistake, it was the same for SA, so you'll at least be prepared for SA recruiting.

For those of you who heard back and got moved to the case study, how did you guys answer the laundromat vs parking lot question?

I simply listed a few factors that I think will come into effect (market size, cost, competition, etc) and then I included quite a bit of detail when it comes to revenue project and cost structure analysis. I did a little primary research in NYC as well but that was not intended. Just happened to pass by.

When did you submit your case study?

FYI, the 2nd batch of cases studies got the deadline extended to the 14th, so I'm assuming interviews will be given in batches

How much time did you spend on the case?

Just finished the interview, it was mainly behavioral and the recruiter said that I will hear back for the next step within a week.

By final round, you mean the one with the academy coach right? How long ago did you have yours?
