What has opened? CS is the only posting I see, with Evercore and Morgan Stanley coming in a few weeks. Anything with the Big 5?

I actually applied for the position about 2 weeks ago through their main website and received an invitation to compete an online assessment. It includes- Numerical Reasoning, Verbal Reasoning and something called 'Credit Suisse chatAssess Analysts'. Can anyone shed some light on the CS process and the test?

Well it's a scenario based assessment. You're put in scenarios with your colleagues and superiors and you need to choose the best option, that you'll respond with. They have made it more conversational.

Bump following Rona virus update. Any news about possibly digitalizing/delaying the recruiting process to the fall ? Thinking about GS, MS, CS, Evercore, and Big 5 Toronto office

I think CS is the only one that historically does it early summer . I think GS/Evercore/MS/UBS for To/Calgary are some around late July/august . Citi is usually in fall along with the big 5 cdn and national bank

From what I've heard, non-diversity applicants are June/July. Not exactly sure about Toronto specifically.

Anyone hear back from National Bank yet? I know apps are due the end of the week and they review them on a rolling basis

The survey was assessing your psychological profile. And, yes I did get one too. The first round calls go out in early July, and the offers are made in the fall.

when I clicked on the link, it directed me to the wrap up "thank you for completing the survey" but I haven't done the survey

Did you apply for anything else? They might be reusing the results assuming you've applied for anything else. Honestly, I don't know; this is my first time applying to Banque Nationale.

For National application there was no option to select what service line you wanted. Did you guys just mention it in the cover letter? Al

Also does it matter if you choose more than 1 location preference?

May 27, 2020 - 1:28am
bookiiee, what's your opinion? Comment below:

I didn't specify group/service line but everyone's cover letter is prob different. And I don't know about the location. I just chose one but I'm pretty sure you can select more than one.

Generally, you should apply as early as possible. Try to keep this in mind. Nevertheless, apply anyways.

Sorry to hijack this thread but is anyone looking to apply for full time in capital markets in general? I know the chances are probably very slim given that I was not part of any summer analyst class, but was wondering what would FT opportunities look like for 2021...

Some 2021 FT apps opened for Big 5 banks. I think RBC has one.

I don't have anything to add to this thread but wanted to wish all the candidates out there the best of luck in the process and hope you guys all end up at the firms you want to be in. As someone who previously went through this I understand how gruelling it can be. just keep pushing and remember that even if doesn't workout, it's not the end of the world. goodluck ladies and gents
