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

Ya this is definitely wrong information. I have talked to a couple of banks and they said first round interviews will take place around late march/early april with superdays shortly after

Mar 9, 2018

You're 100% correct.

Mar 9, 2018

"Ya" let's see how that plays out for them. Top talent wants NYC LA San Fran BB. Not oil and gas in Houston

"Ya", well it worked out pretty well last year. Why don't you take the L on this one champ, and quit trying to pretend to be an expert on something you're not.

The only people taking Ls will be you and other "Champs" who decide to specialize in a declining industry like oil and gas. Good luck to you

Damn. Guess I should have asked you instead of the EIA when I was looking at projected demand in 2050.

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.

Go back to reddit if you're going to beat off over Elon Musk and shit on the O&G sector.

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?

It's not very competitive compared to to nyc so just apply online and maybe cold email a current analyst and that should be enough to get a super day

Why do you feel the need to shit all over this thread?

It's not as competitive relative to NYC, sure. But, it still is certainly in your best interest to network as you are going against a large pool of candidates and there are particular schools that Houston banks show a clear preference for such as UT, A&M, SMU, Rice, and TCU.

Why waste your time with an email and applying online? Just walk into the office, find a desk you like and sit there. Job done

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.

Mar 9, 2018

Goldman, Evercore, Simmons, CS, and a few others are planning their superday processes the last week of March / first week of April. Phone interviews are taking place shortly. Best!

Mar 9, 2018

Add Jefferies and JPM to that list.

Mar 9, 2018

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.

Mar 10, 2018

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.

Anybody here apply to Goldman's IBD Summer Analyst Insight Days?

Mar 11, 2018

Everyone should be networking and grabbing coffees in Houston now.

Mar 17, 2018

Anyone have the latest updates on 1st round or superday dates for Houston banks? Are some of them still first week of April?

Mar 17, 2018

I've been told in the next few weeks

Mar 17, 2018

Do you happen to know the timeline for TPH? @aaym98

Mar 17, 2018

UT has first rounds for most firms on April 9-11th, with superdays most likely the next week.

Mar 21, 2018

First rounds are the first week of April and superdays on the weekend of the 8th and 15th

How worth it is a networking trip, if you want to break in as opposed to just emailing bankers(non alum since my school has close to 0 there)

Mar 21, 2018

A networking trip is infinitely more valuable than simply sending emails.

Not doing Houston myself, but a friend of mine heard back and accepted an offer from GS yesterday, so they must be going out now

Apr 22, 2018

So will all spots be pretty much filled by the start of this summer or will they still have regular recruiting in the summer/fall?
