2018 Full-Time IB Recruiting *DECISIONS* Timeline Megathread Page

Is anyone else tired of seeing the decisions for their applications like 5 months later. I thought It might be a good idea for people to consolidate decision information in a separate thread from the recruiting one. Here it would be cool if you posted anything you may have heard back for FT recruiting. Odds are acceptances to next rounds will be out first so we can save people some time waiting by posting when we hear back. FT is hard to break into without the SA position but with enough work its definitely attainable. I'll update below as people post.

GS HireVues are starting to come out
Evercore superday this week
Moelis Superday this week
Guggenheim superday 8/17
Wells Fargo emails are out
PJT superday this week
Barcap (not hiring one source so far)

This is a good idea

Aug 5, 2017

I think Goldman ft hirevues are starting to come out

Jul 31, 2017

Which locations have you guys applied to? I have only done London and started networking within the firms. I actually have a call with a GS recruiter (London) in a day or two. I will try to keep you guys informed.
But yes, I heard GS has started sending out Hirevues, but as far as I know, this is only for US and for SA positions only.
Comments please (Anything is helpful).

Aug 5, 2017

I have applied mainly new york, but if an application has multiple locations I'll check those boxes too because why not. but only US really.

Jul 31, 2017

apparently FT Hirevues are out too

I think it is on a rolling basis so you can check the website and it should give an indication of whether or not you will move forward, depending on when you applied. I guess for the eager ones who applied the 15th, you should expect one now or never.

Jul 31, 2017

When you say that the FT are out too. Are you referring to the US application only or do you know about London too?

Aug 5, 2017

I am US so I can only speak to that, not sure about London, maybe someone can answer that?

Jul 31, 2017

How have you approached your networking? Just sending out cold emails?

nobody is as dank as me

Jul 31, 2017

Mine was mostly LinkedIn. It did really help. I got to speak to an Exec Director at GS and another higher official.

People rag on LinkedIn but it has been an invaluable tool for me as well, both on the IB side and on the petroleum engineering side. I've gotten convos with people I never would have met, and it many of the guys and gals that have "made it" really want to help us young guys out if we actually reach out. Seriously, reach out to people on LinkedIn and start a conversation.

I think it was @Sil who had posted once about making an excel spreadsheet of the places you are interested in. from there you can add columns for different contacts you've had. I would look up the company on linkedin and it would say how many people from my school worked there and I would reach out that way. with a pretty short email describing who I was, how I found them, and what I wanted all in 3 sentences. I would say that i wanted to chat if they had any time. You can use your spreadsheet to keep track of all of this and follow up throughout the year. One of them will stick and things will work out. They can only get you in the door so its on you to prepare. Networking can only go so far.

Any advice for someone who doesn't have any alums working in IB? Trolling LinkedIn I only ever see 1 or maybe 2 people from my school working at any banks, that's big or small, and usually they're in the IT department.

Hoping for hedge life.

Aug 5, 2017

I would reach out to these one or two guys just to get a feel for the company, maybe they will know someone to put you in contact with. Odds are they are trying to break in too so maybe they will sympathize with you. You should also try to find people with at least something in common. Same high school, town, sports or anything and reach out. There is not going to be a big response rate but it only takes one. Play the numbers game. A more personalized email will get responses but its going to be tedious. Best of luck!

Search "investment banker" in the people section. Use the "try premium" too. They don't have to be alumni, just reach out showing interest. I've gotten pretty good responses by asking for their story and perspective. Once you get a couple people to connect, you're golden, as investment bankers are all interconnected on LinkedIn and you can then connect with their connections.

Aug 1, 2017

Applied for FT IMD (NY and CHI), MBD (NY), got hirevue 7/26 for GS

Aug 5, 2017

So for London you didn't do any HireVue interview, right?

Jul 31, 2017

I didn't do a HireVue, but just to be clear. It wasn't a phone interview. It was just a chat with the Exec Director. We WhatsApp and chat generally now.

Evercore apps are closed and have already done some phone screenings

Talked to a JPM HR during a campus SA networking event and said JPM IB won't hiring FT.

Aug 7, 2017

I heard otherwise. A few groups in NY/SF are hiring for FT - but process will likely be limited to those who networked

they are full in those too

Got a formal rejection from GS SLC after doing the hirevue

Aug 1, 2017

I don't think William Blair is doing full-time recruiting. Also, PJT is done.

Sep 14, 2017

I think he's probably talking about the ECM position, which is open to anyone to apply

Aug 15, 2017

I think Piper Jaffray has extended all NY superday invites at this point. Same goes for Stifel NY (although they may have one left, not entirely sure). I'm at a non-target, so not sure how things work for you OCR folks.

Aug 7, 2017

PJC SF/Stifel Tech in SF has also extended all offers

Sep 21, 2017

PJC Tech or all groups in SF?

Aug 1, 2017

All offices of Piper Jaffray, Centerview, and PJT are done. Basically, I think every notable bank is done.

Sep 22, 2017

This is false. Piper Jaffray SF still has super days today and on the 6th.

Sep 22, 2017

you sure they didn't cancel the superdays?

Sep 22, 2017

Yeah. One of my buddies has one today. They mentioned they aren't going to send offers until all their super days are complete, based on my understanding. This is through OCR.

Sep 22, 2017

They said they get back to candidates a little after the superday. Heard one guy get a call back in my hotel lobby the same day. Supposed to get my decision today (probably cus I'm on hold)

Sep 22, 2017

I had mine last week and I'm on hold as well.

Aug 1, 2017

I think that Piper Jaffray is already so far along the FT recruiting track that they won't give out any more first round interviews if they are contacted so they are pretty much done as well.

Sep 21, 2017

Has Wells already done superdays/decisions out?

Sep 24, 2017

Wells decisions are indeed out
