for the must up to date information.

Haven't seen a thread on this yet. Since Summer Analyst recruiting has gotten underway, I thought it would be helpful to aggregate any and all information regarding full-time recruiting.

So far, being at a major IBD university, I have seen no information. Feel free to pass along info if you have any.

Have heard Credit Suisse will have a very small number of openings after offers go to interns. Probably August?

As someone who went through FT recruiting last year, I noticed that a lot of banks will have just a couple openings available after intern offers go out, but you have to be "in the loop" to be invited for their FT processes most of the times.

I've also heard that some banks will do some FT recruiting from Jan-April depending on what happens during bonus season and if they just need a larger team because of better deal flow.

So would you say it's best to start reaching out to other banks sometime in the middle of summer after already putting in several weeks at your current SA bank? I just feel like trying to make those calls before the summer seems pretty risky.

Went through the process last year: started my internship in may (4 month stint) and reached out to a bunch of analysts and associates that were alumni (semi-target, Canada) and had an informational chat. At the end of the call I'd say that I was interested in any processes that may come up and would love to stay in the loop.

Entrepreneur Hero,

As someone who will not be interning in IB this summer, but in O&G, how would you approach recruiting if you were in my shoe?

For context, I have previously interned in IB last summer + eng major.

Thanks!

Mar 1, 2018

If you already did IB last summer and are doing O&G this summer, then you could tell a story about how you realized that you enjoy the positive aspects of IB more than O&G. Just be sure to not say negative things about your experience in O&G.

Mar 1, 2018

Just echoing what someone said above -- what should my timeline be for reaching out to people? I feel like its a bad look to already be calling people and saying that I'm interested in pursuing their firm if I haven't even spent a day in the office at my current firm yet. But, at the same time, I'm worried about waiting too long. What's the move?

Mar 7, 2018

bump, does one reach out to analyst or associate or higher to stay "in the loop"?

Mar 7, 2018

This does involve some tapestry in my opinion.. Im in a similar spot - trying to reach out for FT before I even begin my 2018 IB SA role - and the way Im going about it is just portraying each outreach as a means of learning more about the industry/inquiring about how i can prep and kill it over the summer.. Obviously Im doing this in concert with ingratiating myself to the banker on the other side + setting a great impression.. Plan is to reach out again in June to officially espouse an interest and hopefully get into their processes.

From my understanding most EBs are going to be running their FT recruitment late July/early August.

Analysts/Associates should be your bread n butter when reaching out.

    • 8
Mar 1, 2018

Thanks for weighing in. Late July makes some sense as a starting point.

Mar 8, 2018

Pretty on-point approach

Mar 14, 2018

I made the move to IB during FT Associate recruiting after doing something different for my MBA summer internship.

Around early-mid July, I started reaching out to friends/classmates who were doing IB summer internships. This was great for getting information about firm/group culture. I would also ask for referrals to any more seasoned alumni they knew in the groups I was interested in. I had these conversations in late July and August.

It's all about staying on firms'/groups' radars. To echo what people above say, there's not a formal process being run some (most) of the time, so being the person people think of when they need to add an FT hire is crucial.

Be ready when you're talking to anyone at the bank who's not a friend/peer. I had informationals/coffee chats turn into interviews with technicals.

How much harder is it to network into IB FT if you're doing something else at a large firm for the summer (S&T, AM, ER, etc)?

Mar 1, 2018

Try to see if you can go through the internal mobility process at your firm. Usually since you are in a FO job, it is much easier to interview and lateral over to another FO job than it is if you are in BO trying to go FO.

Yeah no USA openings.

Although I would not even be slightly surprised if they start looking at FT candidates over the summer when they look at SA candidates. They can reasonably expect to have more than zero openings, and I think keeping a backlog of resumes from which to make offers would be somewhat of a sensible approach.

Mar 1, 2018

Now that I think about it, I'm sure banks with large analyst classes could do FT recruiting earlier just based on their previous years' stats about how many people don't get offers or leave banking for other reasons. Of course, these would be extremely accelerated processes that would be few and far between before they actually go through FT recruiting. For example, we all know GS's offer rate is less than 100% so theoretically they could have an accelerated process to get new people who can fill in those spots of those interns who will not get an offer merely because not all interns will get return offers.

Mar 19, 2018

Looking for advice - working as a Summer 18 analyst at a regional office of a MM firm (think piper jaffray) but hoping to be able to move to their NYC office for FT 2019. how should i go about this? do i bring it up to someone in HR or recruiting, or start networking with their NY analysts/associates before i even start the internship? half way through? or wait to get a return offer to the regional office before i bring anything up? feel like certain things can look shady and i don't want to end up with no return offer at all because of this.. tricky situation

Mar 1, 2018

I'm interested in other people's thoughts on this.

I think you're fighting two things here. One is the risk of insulting the people you're working with. I don't think they'd be that sensitive, but it seems possible. The other is coming off as presumptuous. It doesn't seem appropriate to initiate beyond the summer conversations in the first few weeks you're there, for example.

I think the best way to go about this would be to frame your desire to explore NYC opportunities as a primarily (although not exclusively for the sake of truthfulness) personal choice.

Like a "I love working here, but my family are in New York; given the lifestyle of this job, I'll rarely see them if I'm not nearby. I'd love to stay at the firm though, so my preference is first for that office, second for this one, with any other companies trailing behind as undesirable choices." Obviously this would need some tweaking (especially if your family aren't in New York) but you let people's egos have an out.

And I think it would be best to float the possibility before you leave. I've always found its easier to get people on your side if you talk to them in person.

Mar 18, 2018

what are thoughts on attending info sessions targeted towards freshmen/sophomores, to get on recruiters' radar? I go to a target school, and a ton of banks are coming to my campus but the events seem to explicitly state that they're exclusively for underclassmen

Mar 1, 2018

You're totally allowed to do this. The problem is that you can't tell the recruiter that you're interested in the firm when you haven't even started your junior internship. It'll look a little weird similar to if someone is networking with analysts at different banks for FT when they haven't started their junior internship. At the same time, if you ask the recruiter about it, you'll be on their radar or at least try to be on their radar as you can ask for their business card and keep in contact with them over the next few months regarding FT positions.

Hey Everyone,

I was in a similar spot last year and was going through FT recruitment without having a major banking internship on Wall Street. I come from a super Non-Target and ended up doing a Masters of Finance this year at a decently known school. By being super diligent and persistent I was able to land a job on the street. My advice If you are coming from a background like mine would be to find an internship whether paid or unpaid that offers some type of transaction experience over this summer. I reached out to small PE firms/ Boutique IB shops and ended up landing an internship at super small shop (banking team was less than 5 people!!) and worked on 1 live deal. However, starting in April 2017 I started networking super hard reaching out to anyone that I had any kind of connection with I.E. hometown/university/ club/ fraternity and flew up to NYC twice over the summer to meet with these guys in person and really showed how committed I was. It is super important to build the network early and followup late July because the process goes by SUPER FAST. In my experience, the top BB's weren't hiring and I didn't fit there background so I targeted a lot of the middle market firms.

From my experience the firms that were hiring that I made contact with were:

SunTrust
Piper
Mizuho
Nomura
Moelis
BB&T
RBC
Wells Fargo
CIBC
Jefferies
Oppenheimer
KBW
Raymond James
Lazard MM
Lincoln International
TD Securities
Baird
HL
Stifel
Stephens

I am sure there were some others but those were the main ones off the top of my head. Hopefully this helps some of you monkeys out. Best of luck out there and stay committed!

Anyone have any info regarding timeline this year? I know SA was super early this year but haven't heard anything about FT

Mar 1, 2018

Considering how early SA was, it might make sense to play it safe and start to build connections with some analysts for FT recruiting. At some point, you can tell them that you're interested in FT at their firm and then you can ask them about what the timeline will be like. Hopefully, that will provide some clarity.

Jun 1, 2018

Most of the analysts I've talked to say it's just not possible to start full-time recruiting till mid-July. It's just a waiting game at this point to see which interns don't get FT offers.

Mar 1, 2018

Some banks, especially the EBs, almost always take analysts for FT every year.

    • 1
Jun 2, 2018

Talked to a couple MM banks this past week. One told me they would be doing FT recruiting starting mid-August and the other one said first week of September. The timelines seems to be largely dependent on individual firms so I wouldn't make any assumptions based on what other banks seem to be doing.

I am about to start my MSF program and reaching out to alum now. One question I found was that ppl r in different coverage/product group. When I say I am interested in their IBD FT position, should I say whichever group they are at or just say im open to any?
any input would be great thanks!

Jun 2, 2018

I personally would mention a specific coverage/product group you are interested in (and why) but go on to say you are open to considering different groups if the opportunity arises. This way you show you have thought about the question (you have a specific area of interest that you have developed overtime) but are still keeping your options open and maximizing your chances of getting an offer somewhere. I am in a similar boat as you; I will be recruiting for FT this summer and have also started reaching out to all the contacts I have. FT IDB recruiting is really tough because for a lot of banks it's not really a formal process. Ideally, banks would want to solidify their FT analyst class entirely via their SA programs (this is what happens at most of the BBs and EBs) so as to minimize risk. At MM banks there tends to be more turnover and hence a FT recruiting process is more relevant. Anyway, the point I'm trying to make is FT recruiting seems to be somewhat of a crapshoot (how many SAs will return to x firm?) so it's best to keep as many doors open as possible and not be picky.

Mar 18, 2018

Just out of curiosity, are most of you guys interning in IB this summer (boutiques/no-name firms) or in other areas like PE AM S&T etc?

Jul 1, 2018

So, is BAML not gonna have FT apps at all???? Also, does anybody know about MS and JPM?

Jul 1, 2018

Last year, BAML did not have any FT applications/openings when I went through the process.

EDIT: MS actually did have applications open last year, but the HR rep I kept in close contact with said that they did not have any openings after the interns accepted their full-time offers. Think they had just opened applications in the event that they had a lower than expected yield on the interns

JPM does their junior analyst FT recruiting process, which I think has roughly 20 spots annually in the US (don't quote me on the exact number, but it's a pretty substantial amount if I recall correctly from a friend who made it far in the process).

I can speak on BAML. I'm doing a wholesale credit SA right now, did my mid summer review and it was good. Spoke with IB analyst recruiter, they will have a idea of what roles are open for capital market or IB during the end of Summer internship which is 8/10. Then, spots gets open to SA who expressed that they are looking to transition to other banks. (Obviously, you need to have good review from manager first.) Then, they will try to connect you to the hiring manager for superday. Depending on business needs and how many people gets fill, spot will be open for external. Already started dialogue with other banks, seems like standard process.

Jul 11, 2018

Did you talk to your manager about wanting to switch to a different role within the bank for ft or did you reach out to the hr person who currently manage your program and express your interest? Interest in knowing how to approach this!

Jul 6, 2018

That's a great question. I did it with my HR program manager. And, I told him that I didn't want to burn bridges by letting my manager know. There's definitely a little bit of push back on keeping me in wholesale credit. However, I just said that I see some senior management who also make the same move. Therefore, I want to try something different in capital market or coverage to gain some exposure in other parts of the bank. Ended with something like getting interviews at other bank, who have been poaching me and offering interviews in August.

Jul 26, 2018

Hi RichChigga, I'll be at BAML next year in a similar position-not IBD. Have you had questions about why you're now transferring to IBD or do interviewers not care?

Anyone have any ideas if it's easier to recruit outside of NYC? And, if you get a return offer then can you take it and turn it down if you get a better offer?

Jul 16, 2018

I would say in general, no.

SF - some would say even more comparable given desirability of exit opportunities with what is a sexy tech space.

LA - toss-up but I would say it's about the same when you factor in significantly less spots per firm vs equally qualified candidates / good schools.

Outside of these 2 places, offices get quite regional with their own idea of what is "target" - Houston generally takes Rice & University of Houston kids, Chicago takes Loyala kids, etc. So all in all - NY is where the opportunity is, going somewhere else is arguably harder given less spots & the perception you're trying to use them as a stepping stone (compared to a candidate who grew up there, went to school there, has family there, and conceivably wants to work there).

No, you're going to want to apply for positions that do not list "2019 analyst" in the title. Essentially, FT hire spots looking to bring someone on immediately. Most, if not all, 2019 analyst apps require the applicant to graduate in either December 2018 or Spring 2019.

Edit: how is that inaccurate? If he graduated in December 2017, he doesn't qualify for 2019 Analyst roles. The apps specifically state, graduated dec 18 or spring 19.

I heard differently. But you're an MBA student (from your signature it seems like) so timeline might be different for entry-AN2? The analyst I spoke to said that internal FT recco's haven't been asked of yet and will happen once summer conversion #'s come in. So mid-August, just like most other banks I presume.

Jul 26, 2018

Very odd, I applied yesterday and the same listing is no longer available. I wonder if it was posted too early by mistake. If not, what's the deal with all these 1 day applications???

Jul 26, 2018

But your application is alive and "Waiting to hear response" though?
Wells usually do 1 day so i can understand that. DB never does that hmm

I had started my application yesterday and went to finish it tonight but it was "unavailable". I emailed HR to see if the application is permanently closed, so I'll update tomorrow if they respond.

Same here. A lot of SA postings, not many for FT. I assume there'll be more postings once banks figure out how many SAs accept return offers.
Surprisingly, I've seen some PE/VC analyst openings though.

life's easier when you're stupid

Jul 28, 2018

Do you happen to know which PE/VC firms have openings? I haven't seen many

pretty happy about that tbh. equalizes playing field for non targets. god heavens knows how hard it is for non targets to break in the summer cycle given how structured and early it is. ft is a hustle ballgame

Hi Henri, what are the random shops you're referring to?

Did Moelis close? I thought I saw the application on their website yesterday but now I only see the Summer Analyst application...

Jul 30, 2018

Hopefully it is not lol. Since it doesn't post the deadline so how are we supposed to know when to submit our application. I think it will be more round afterwards.

Jul 16, 2018

If my records are right, I applied on the 19th so it being open for 1.5-2 wks. doesnt seem that bad...compared to places like DB/UBS that have it up for like 24-48 hours

henri,

Was scanning through JPM FT positions, it appears they have postings for analyst positions, but they all end with (intern conversion). I assume these are for their summers, but it appears they're available to the public? Any clue what's going on there?

Edit: After some quick browsing, it appears the user-face FT program selector on JPM's careers site shows barely any open programs, but if you can find a way to the actual postings, they're open, with (intern conversion) listed beside. It seems it's just a lackadaisical non-employee firewall bug

Is DB closed for good?

Jul 30, 2018

I've been told by an IBD employee that Guggenheim is filling their FT funnel with all SA's.

Jul 17, 2018

Is it office specific? On my university's website they are recruiting for FT (think UVA/UMich/Berkeley)

Anyone have visibility into timeline for Morgan Stanley?

Here's the bottom line about BB recruiting for full time. They are going to open later this month for external candidates no later than mid September. Just wait on it. I don't know how GS starts so early. I spoken to a bunch of BB recruiter and one alumni that's actually responsible for Citi's recruiting this year for his group. They will all have opening, they just don't know how many. Anyone that says that there's no opening position is just making stuff up. Even if banks are offering 100% placement for SA, there's a good chance some SA won't take the offer. The best advice I have been getting from everyone is to continue networking and try to get your name out there via LinkedIn. Check on Henri's post to see which applications are open. Sharpen up your technical (especially for all my non-target peers out there).

Wells FT IB first rounds sent out today -- just got the email. My interviewer is in Charlotte, NC though, which is odd given I applied to the tech group..

I know of at least one BB that is having their internal FT process in the first week of September. It's geared for internal summers who want to switch groups for FT, and laterals who get invites.

Applying through the FT channel by itself won't actually do anything. It might be required HR-wise if you're already in the process, and you're getting hired. This is just my own thought here, but it honestly seems that opening up a portal is more of a front of "we consider everyone equally and give equal opportunities" more than anything

I'm curious to know which one that sounds pretty late as my bank already pretty much done with the summer analyst program today. I finish my final presentation and in the process of scheduling time with my program manager to speak this Friday about recruiting for IB. I think internal transfer should be done late August.

You can even have 100% SA offers and 100% acceptance and many banks will still have FT openings. Not all target to fill 100% through SAs.

Jul 18, 2018

Does anyone know anything about Deloitte Corporate Finance? I'm not sure if my source (alum who works at the firm) is correct, but he says they filled up already and the online portal is a dead end.

Jul 17, 2018

Interested as well. What's Deloitte's Investment Banking team?

Aug 18, 2018

Have a friend who did the first round and got invited to the super day. I've never talked to anyone on the team myself, but from what my friend has told me they are MM investment banking.

Admittedly, I don't know too many specifics other than first-round interviews have already occurred and super day invites are going out. I could be wrong, but my gut feeling is this is not typical SS advisory and more so diligence and fairness opinions.
