EARLY RECRUITMENT PROCESS / APPLICATIONS / INTERVIEWS / SUPERDAYS

Hey guys. With this insanely early timeline and recruiting already under way, I wanted to establish a single place where all students can come come to share knowledge, questions, information, and concerns regarding Houston investment banking summer analyst recruiting for summer 2019. Good luck to everyone.

Nah the accelerated recruiting doesn’t really apply to Houston. Super days probably won’t be til December for Houston. If they started this early, everyone will be more focused on getting to better banks / coverage groups and they won’t get much attention

Fuckin my way thru nyc one chick at a time

Declining industry? You are grossly uninformed about what you are talking about on every level. Demand for global oil has increased every year for the last 70 years (yes even in the past few years). You also don't seem to know much about IB, because even if the industry was "declining" as you say, it would actually bolster a lot of activity in the IB realm. O&G is here to stay for a while my friend.

For places like Houston/Dallas do you pretty much have to have OCR or network with people in those offices in order to get a super day?

Definitely network. A lot of the Houston BB will conduct their own recruiting first before the actual HR timeline says. That way they get the "keeners" to fill spots and then they use the general application process to fill in the remaining spots if there are any left. Each bank has a variation of this approach, so just be prepared to hustle and shoot to get into their "target" recruiting round.

Seriously? Simmons' app isn't even out yet... I spoke with a guy at Simmons who said they were starting phone interviews like maybe April-ish. He was fairly high up though, and told me he handled associate recruiting, so idk if he's too high up and removed from the SA recruiting process. Where are you getting this info

Edit: I lied nvm, I found their app. Damn though.

Not recruiting for 2019, but just thought I'd let all the sophomores know that every BB/relevant boutiques in all three regions have posted their SA positions on my school's OCR. Superdays will happen within 1-2 months. Anyone who tells you that a certain bank hasn't started recruiting is wrong, and listening to them could put you at risk of falling behind. Network, info email, apply, practice your interviewing skills. Sucks that y'all have to do this so early haha.
