Starting a thread for the process starting in Fall of 2021.

Has anyone heard back after filling out the application? (Question asked on 9/4/21). 

2022 Point72 Academy Experienced Program - Worldwide position?
I finished the questionnaire a few days ago.

Yes I got that one too. DO you know what other steps would entail?

No clear idea, I researched it today and the interview process seems to be different from SA's.

However, case-study seems to be a possibility.

Did you get the questionnaire after sending the application? I just got the standard thank you email.

I'm applying to the recent grad position in London. Do you guys know if the questionnaire is selective, and how long it takes to hear back after submitting it?

  • Intern in IB-M&A

I assume it is at least a bit selective since the email says they've reviewed your profile and receiving the questionnaire is not automatic, although I guess it's more about checking some boxes because there's no instance of someone on WSO who didn't receive it despite applying. We'll see how long it takes to hear back.

Have NOT heard anything yet. When did you get the case study?

How long did they give you to complete and did they give you a specific company or did you choose your own? About to go through the same test and would love to connect in the DMs.

Just submitted my case last night. Not too bad. For those that didn't listen in on the info call the other week the process seems to be: Application -> Questionnaire -> Case -> Case Debrief -> General Interview(s) (Super Day-esq) -> Offer (starting Feb 2022)

Good luck everybody!

Wonder if you've heard back yet? Or does anyone here know how long it took for them to reject or proceed you to next stage? Cheers.

No response yet. From what I've read, if you are successful with the case, there will be a screening interview with HR, then case debrief, then super day.

Just got rejected after sending the case. Anyone heard back after submitting the case model and write up?

I was also rejected. I'm pretty surprised there at least wasn't another round following that, seems like a lot of work without any discussion, doesn't make a lot of sense. Oh well.

mertdeveci, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Agreed. Spent a week day and night on the model and the report and did not even get the chance to defend the opinion or got any feedback. Does not make sense.

Still waiting. I think it's not bad and maybe between the end of the day and monday (included) i will receive the famous invitation for the case study.

Any London applicants waiting to hear back from case study?

petefriggles, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Yes, same boat here.

Submitted 7 days ago, hanging in the limbo rn.

Worked 30 hours non-stop on the case, as I am currently at another fund working fulltime / 80hrs+ a week.

Let's hope for the best, I submitted it 7 days ago as well! However, I did find the case extremely difficult as I come from a non-finance background, so not feeling confident at all. However the case they sent me did explicitly say NON-FINANCE lol

Passed case study. Passed recruiter round. Dinged after case debrief.

Disappointed, but glad timing works out for me to be able to accept a PE offer that pays more / is less cut-throat.

Sorry to hear that. Would you be able to elaborate on what the case study debrief was like? Was it an understanding/challenge of how we came up with our assumptions?

Also passed case study, but dinged after recruiter interview.

I heard there's 16,000 applicants, so not surprising just based on numbers

Any advice for the recruiter and case debrief rounds? I got my recruiter interview tomorrow. Thanks in advance!

nbdovuxfjvjgqpvssn, what's your opinion? Comment below:

My process was approximately:

Submit questionnaire > (~1wk) > Received case study with 1wk deadline > Submit case study > (~2wks) > Invite round 1 HR behavioural > Round 1 > (~Couple days) > Invite round 2 case debrief/discussion > Round 2 > (~Couple days) > Rejection.

From my research round 2 is probably followed by a final round. A Superday.

Good luck everyone!

Well I can tell you they certainly don't want 40 year old lawyers who want to retool to the investment side. Nobody really does though so I can't blame them.

Sure... So I've worked in leveraged finance and distressed credit for 14 years, have worked for two top-10 law firms, and I've also studied fundamental credit analysis and have some financial modeling skills. But you're telling me that they didn't consider my age? I really don't believe that.

Hey guys, do you have any tips for building the model for the case study? Having a hard time doing it.

Did anyone apply for the healthcare investment academy? I think I just filled out the questionnaire for it yesterday, but all it said on the email was "investment analyst academy" with no mention of healthcare.
