BX London SA
Does anyone have any idea on what kind of backgrounds they usually look for in their summer intern hires? How do they screen CVs?
Did a quick search on Linkedin and seems like many were Europeans with several off-cycle internships under their belt already. Any disadvantage coming from a UK semi-target?
BX takes diversity into account but doesnt give for free internships for the sole reason of being a minority.
Anyways it will help you to secure an interview if your stats are decent
Honestly it will be an uphill battle if you don't come from a super-target (OxBridge, HEC, Bocconi), don't speak fluently another European language and don't have already an internship in M&A/PE at a top bank/good fund under your belt.
they recruit heavily from LBS too
Thanks Monkeyrella. So would you say for 1st year students in the UK on a 3 yr course it will be virtually impossible for them to recruit for the summer internships in 2nd year?
Next to impossible for the traditional PE. You might be able to pull it off if you go for real estate debt or smth else, but even then it will be an uphill climb. Just do IB next summer and go from there.
Echo this as my profile at the time was Target Uni, Trilingual, and two internship (IB/PE) and got dinged.
They ever hire Americans for their London office?
Interned at a top firm in London and the Americans there have a second EU passport (from parents / grandparents). Also easier if you're Canadian because I believe you will be doing a youth mobility scheme so the company doesn't have to pay to sponsor you for 1-2 years.
is this the case for other American PE firms in London too? (need to have a second EU passport / be Canadian)
Has anyone heard back from BX after completing the pymetrics assessment?
Unless you have previous IB/Big Name PE experience don't bother applying to PE at BX.
Has anyone heard back for FT 2021? Converted my BB SA but wanted to try anyway thought I might have enough experience
