Hey guys, I'm starting a thread for this program since first rounds are supposed to start coming out this week. Has anyone received anything yet?

Mod Note (Andy): Best of 2016, this post ranks #41 for the past year

Citigroup Summer Sophomore Internship Program

The Citigroup summer internship program is a rotational leadership program for students finishing their sophomore year of college. This is a rotational program in which students rotate through three different groups across the bank. These groups include investment banking, sales and trading, corporate banking, CMO, as well as other groups at the firm.

This program is considered a great way to get exposure to different parts of the firm and learn more about the divisions that students are interested in pursuing for their junior year internship. After successfully completing the sophomore internship, students are able to preference what division they are interested in returning to for junior year.

The program is highly selective and recruiting for the program occurs mostly at target schools.

Check out the attached flyer to learn more about the program.

there was an extra email sent out to state preferences; i think everyone got that - unless if someone can prove me wrong?

Dec 17, 2016

Yeah that was sent out

Oct 24, 2016

Yes, I think everyone who applied received that.

Oct 25, 2016

Comment to follow

Oct 25, 2016

I heard that this program is good with accepting URM and non-target students. Any URM/non-targets here?

Oct 25, 2016

I'm a URM but I go to a target.

Oct 31, 2016

I went to a non-target when I applied and received and accepted the offer

Nov 6, 2016

was this for this coming summer of 2017

Oct 26, 2016

Where in the Citi website did you find this program? I cannot find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Oct 26, 2016

Unfortunately, it is too late to apply now. I think the deadline was a couple weeks ago.

Oct 28, 2016

That would explain a lot. But thank you I appreciate the response!

Oct 26, 2016

Oct 26, 2016

Probably within a week or two. Since the super days are on the 17th and 18th

Oct 26, 2016

heyyyyy guys I applied for this too, anyone who went through the program before please comment and let me know what it is like. Got the email for preferences, luckily as soon as I applied the link went down. Havent heard much about Citi so I wonder if it will be competitive to get into as most sophmores are focusing on GS, JPM, etc.

Oct 27, 2016

Have any of the lucky 36 heard back yet?

Nov 5, 2016

Everybody will probably need to go through a superday before getting an actual offer

Oct 28, 2016

Did anyone schedule for the first round and is the first round a phone interview?

Oct 28, 2016

Did you hear back already? Yes it is a phone interview.

Oct 28, 2016

Not yet you ?

Oct 29, 2016

Commenting to follow. I have also applied for this program and have not heard anything about 1st rounds yet.

Oct 31, 2016

How do you know the first round is a phone interview if they haven't sent out any information yet?

Oct 31, 2016

Asking someone who has done it in years prior maybe? I have heard that first round is a phone interview as well.

Oct 31, 2016

I've got a phone screening later on. Is that the same thing as a first round? Also I did not get the preference email, if anyone can give more info on it.

Oct 31, 2016

When did they contact you for phone screen? The preferences email just had you list the divisions you wanted to work in.

Oct 31, 2016

Ah, thank you. I'm not sure if I had access to a different app, but my preferences were included in the application, not separately via email. The notification happened last week.

Nov 1, 2016

So, just to be exact, the program's name is Citi NAM Sophomore Leadership program. There is also another one called EarlyID program for sophomores which I did not apply.

Nov 1, 2016

I haven't heard of the EarlyID program, and yeah I applied to the NAM Sophomore program. Here's the link that has since been taken down: https://jobs.citi.com/job/new-york/sophomore-leade...

Nov 1, 2016

Then, best of luck to u! :) Let us know how your first round went.

Nov 2, 2016

Just got a notification to set up a first round interview with an IB MD.

Nov 25, 2016

.

Nov 2, 2016

By the looks of it, it seems like I am only the second one on WSO to get this. My notification also just came today, days apart from the other guy so I feel like there's still a high chance of them sending out more invites.

Nov 3, 2016

I got an email to set up a first round interview Wednesday and my interview is on Monday

Nov 3, 2016

did you also receive an extra form to fill out or were you just contacted directly to set up an interview?

Nov 3, 2016

What time did you receive a email? I hope I'm not dinged

Nov 3, 2016

I got the email Wed Nov 2nd at 2pm, and i got the email with with the extra form Oct 19th

Nov 4, 2016

Got an email this morning (from an individual not recruitment team) to set up a call for later today or monday afternoon

Nov 4, 2016

Same here for S&T

Nov 4, 2016

For those who have received first rounds, has anything changed in the application portal? Under "My Jobs", the listing for this program has disappeared...

Nov 4, 2016

The listing disappeared a while a go for me. I was told they were finalizing first rounds this week. If I haven't been notified yet can I pretty much assume I was cut. Do they release invites by school? If so any other Penn kids recieve invites.

Nov 4, 2016

I am on the same boat, but I am not from Penn. I just sent them an email this morning. I will let you know what the graduate recruitment has to say. Best of luck with your internship search!

Nov 7, 2016

Did they ever get back to you? best of luck to you as well!

Nov 4, 2016

I wonder when they will send out rejection emails, fingers crossed until mine comes I guess!

Nov 4, 2016

I got an email about setting up a first round interview today.

Nov 4, 2016

.

Nov 4, 2016

when was your first round?

Nov 6, 2016

Would you mind share your first-round interview questions?

Nov 7, 2016

did you ask when you would hear back? also did you receive an additional call?

Nov 6, 2016

So if we got the additional forms on Thursday, is that a good sign that there's a first round to be scheduled sometime this week?

Nov 6, 2016

I got my first round a couple days after filling out the forms.

Nov 7, 2016

I have my phone interview tomorrow, was wondering if it is mostly behavioral/fit or technical?

Nov 7, 2016

I heard for the sophomore program there won't be techs. From recruiter.

Nov 8, 2016

I've got two interviews for some reason or another, but my first interview had some light technicals.

Nov 7, 2016

Anyone receive more than one call?

Nov 7, 2016

[test]

Nov 7, 2016

Were you emailed to set up another phone interview or told on the phone in your first interview?

Nov 7, 2016

When did you submit your application?

Nov 7, 2016

[test]

Nov 7, 2016

well that gives me hope!

Nov 7, 2016

So I had a phone screen this Sunday thinking it was a 1st Round interview, but apparently, it was just a phone screen to see who actually gets 1st rounds.

I just got an email today asking to set up a first round interview later this week. The process is incredibly competitive though. During the phone screen, the MD I spoke with had told me that he was only allowed to choose 2 people from the X amount he spoke to.

Nov 7, 2016

Ya, I think it is about 2/30 from speaking with people at Citi.

Nov 7, 2016

From the initial phone screen or from 1st rounds?

Nov 7, 2016

Do you happen to know the amount of people that get invited to super day? I know 35 get offers but i'd be curious to know how many make it to super day.

Nov 8, 2016

That's interesting, I never had a phone screen before my interview. I just got an email saying I made it to the first round and to set up a call.

Nov 8, 2016

Which group are you interviewing with? I think only the initial phone screens are happening in investment baking, but I could be wrong. I, also, went straight to a first round interview with markets.

Nov 8, 2016

I think you might be right. It looks like phone screens are being held depending on your rotational rankings

Nov 8, 2016

Went straight to a first round with investment banking

Nov 8, 2016

So anyone rank Asset Management first or second?

Nov 8, 2016

Finished my first round, he said that since i had a good amount of finance experience he was going to ask me a lot of technicals, and he did (some pretty tricky ones as well). But if you knew your valuation basics you were fine.

Another note, my first round was conducted by an analyst who is an alumni of my school who is only interviewing people from my school, so I am pretty sure only alumni are conducting these interviews.

Nov 8, 2016

Yeah, at least for me it was focused on the three types of valuation, criteria you look for in comps analysis, and general questions distinguishing "why IB" over PE, HF, other sectors in financial services. Also conducted by school alumni - was wondering if this was the case for most people? Have heard a real mix of things about the first round.

Nov 10, 2016

I was asked why IB and it was run by an alumni from my school that had the same two majors as me. So they were clearly deliberate with whom they chose to match together.

Nov 8, 2016

How many rounds are there?

Nov 9, 2016

someone had a phone interview? or heard about the superday?

Nov 10, 2016

I spoke to someone at Citi yesterday and they said 1st round interviews were to be completed last night. He also said we should hear something back about super day late this week or early next week.

Nov 10, 2016

How was your interview? did you spoke to an md? what did you talked about? are you going to a target school? urm?
And btw I remember when filling the department ranking few weeks ago we had to choose from the 17th to the 18th superdays, which means next week. they will probably update us really soon.

Nov 11, 2016

Has anyone received invite to superday?

    • 3
Nov 11, 2016

Not yet. There are a few of us at my school and none of us have heard back.

Nov 11, 2016

is there a difference between phone screen/phone interview?

Nov 11, 2016

Anybody else just get an email to sign forms and fill in more stuff on their application for Citi?

Nov 11, 2016

Yep, do you know if everyone who got a first-round received this email?

Nov 11, 2016

Had a first round, did not receive this email. What were the forms exactly?

Nov 11, 2016

I just received an email inviting me to superday. Good luck everyone!

    • 1
Nov 11, 2016

Also received email inviting me to superday, Good luck guys!

Nov 12, 2016

What division was your first-round for?

Nov 12, 2016

S&T here.

Nov 12, 2016

I received the first email about filling the survey and never heard back from them since. Do they just ignore me? Or are there going to be any more phone interview before the superday?

Nov 12, 2016

Should be phone interview then superday invites from my experience.

Nov 12, 2016

Is there any way I can get in touch with the people who are responsible for this program. I emailed to the name mentioned in the email about filling the survey but never heard back.

Nov 12, 2016

Did anyone in IB get a superday invite?

Nov 12, 2016

Was also wondering this. There's disagreement on whether superday invites for IB have been sent out - I haven't gotten one yet.

Nov 12, 2016

IB were sent out, I got one

Array
Nov 12, 2016

2 people at my school got one on Thursday

Nov 12, 2016

This probably signals bad news then. Out of curiosity, anyone get a superday who is also non-URM?

Nov 12, 2016

So I got the superday. Anyone know what a sophomore Superday looks like? How technical can I expect it to be? FWIW, my first round was with CMO and it was super non-technical.

Nov 12, 2016

You can expect it to be very behavioral. If they do ask technicals, it is usually the standard ones like walk me through a DCF.

    • 1
Nov 12, 2016

What desk in CMO did you have a first round with? Are you from a target?

Anyone know if superday notices come out in waves based on where in the country you study? I want to email the person I spoke with but don't want to jump the gun on it if they haven't sent out all the invites yet.

Nov 12, 2016

For everyone who got superdays, did you get it for the 17th or 18th?

Nov 12, 2016

will those who had a phone interview but didn't get a superday (yet hopefully) get a rejection email? will they let us know?

Nov 12, 2016

I really hope so, but large firms don't ever really bother to do so in a timely fashion. I feel there's enough anecdotal evidence to confirm this, unfortunately.

Nov 12, 2016

For those that got their notifications for the superday already--when did you have your first round? I had mine on Wednesday afternoon so I feel like if I do get a response I should expect it early this upcoming week.

Nov 12, 2016

This - perhaps it's just that I don't want to lose hope, but I had two interviews, one on Tuesday and one on Wednesday.

Nov 12, 2016

I received a superday email and I had my interview on Wednesday afternoon as well.

Nov 12, 2016

Got it. Did your interviewer tell you that you'd be notified by the end of this week? Because mine said he'd get back next week.

Nov 12, 2016

What can I expect for a markets superday?

Nov 13, 2016

Also got a super day invite. Did anyone get the email on how to book air travel? Does Citi book travel for us?

Nov 13, 2016

They will probably send an email Monday with instructions on how to book through their travel agency.

Nov 13, 2016

I got a superday invite as well. Does anyone know if we will be interviewed at the superday by the same department we had the first round interview for? I listed treasury & trade solutions as my first choice.

Nov 14, 2016

I did the same with rankings, and am unsure. Do you know if it will be technical at all?

Nov 13, 2016

im confused, my first round is tomorrow but everyone here is already getting superdays?

Nov 13, 2016

Maybe the invites for the 17th went out on Friday and for the 18th they go out tomorrow? praying this is the case

Nov 14, 2016

nah mine is friday the 18th and i was notified last friday

Nov 14, 2016

Has anyone who's gotten their superday gotten the travel info yet?

Nov 14, 2016

Not yet. I replied back to the email to confirm my spot. Hopefully, we will know by tomorrow.

Nov 14, 2016

If you got a superday notification today please tell me...I am so nervous..I feel like chances are shredding..

Nov 14, 2016

Alternatively, has anyone gotten a rejection email? (After a phone interview)?

Nov 14, 2016

They didn't even contact me for first round interview. I am so confused.

Nov 14, 2016

I thought my phone screen went great, especially for only a screening, but no super day invite.

Nov 14, 2016

Did they notify you that you didn't make it to the superday or are you just assuming that you didn't?

Nov 15, 2016

I had two phone interviews and thought they went great, but haven't been contacted. Though it'd be nice to explicitly be notified of rejection, I think (at this point) it's safe to say that if you haven't been contacted yet, then no superday.

Nov 15, 2016

[Duplicate post due to technical error, please ignore]

American Psycho:

Did they notify you that you didn't make it to the superday or are you just assuming that you didn't?

I got a notification.

Nov 15, 2016

Did anyone get notifed on Monday?

Nov 15, 2016

I feel like there are a few more to come. I just had My phone interview yesterday

Nov 15, 2016

Thank you for the special insight. That really helps me calm down and I can start review my midterm now ;-)

Nov 15, 2016

Haha jeez. Makes sense as to why they notified us of the superdays way in advance. I guess for some the notification will be coming in shortly before.

Nov 15, 2016

Has anyone gotten their travel info for the superdays yet??

Nov 15, 2016

got a rejection :/

Nov 15, 2016

same :/ felt like my phone interview went pretty well

Nov 15, 2016

Didn't get an email after my interviews. Not even sure what to think anymore - perhaps they're sending out rejections in a staggered way?

Nov 17, 2016

Anyone hear back from first super day?

Array
Nov 17, 2016

Nope, haven't heard anything from
Them yet.

Nov 17, 2016

Dude it just happened. There's more candidates tomorrow. I'm sure they want to see all the options. I was told to expect an answer Tuesday or Wednesday.

Nov 18, 2016

Anyone hear back yet?

Nov 19, 2016

Nothing. If anyone has, please let us know.

Nov 19, 2016

They probably won't start calling until Monday afternoon.

Nov 20, 2016

Would anyone turn down this offer for something else? I'm looking at a couple different opportunities this summer and don't know what to accept if I'm offered this.

Nov 20, 2016

Personally, I would not. Being rotational allows you to solidify if your first choice is really where you want to be. On the flip side, it depends how well you fit in with the people at Citi. You should be looking for a place where you will enjoy your time at work.

Nov 20, 2016

Looks like nobody has gotten anything. They're done with Superdays, so I suspect they'll be calling starting Monday afternoon. There were about 30-35ish people at my superday, so I suspect 1 in 4 people will make it, maybe more if you listed a less popular option like the Private Bank, your chances are higher, versus IBD or CMO.

Nov 20, 2016

That isn't necessarily true. I spoke with HR and they said if they don't like 35 people they will just host another super day to find the people that will be a good fit.

Nov 20, 2016

there are 2 groups of people right now - people who were sent a rejection email after their first round, and people who attended superday and are awaiting decisions. where are the other superday candidates coming from?

Nov 21, 2016

Anyone heard back yet?

Nov 21, 2016

^

Array
Nov 21, 2016

I have. I received an offer from them. I believe I got notified early because I had a different offer expiring today. I haven't received the official email so I am assuming official notifications haven't been sent yet. Good luck everyone!

    • 2
Nov 21, 2016

congratulations! did they say when the other offers would be coming out? who called to give the offer? also what division?

Nov 21, 2016

Just spoke with a friend who is an associate. The MD in his group that I interviewed with told him that I will be getting an offer! He said to expect a call tomorrow from HR.

Nov 21, 2016

Congrats!!!

Nov 21, 2016

Thanks! I'll PM you.
