They asked basic questions: tell me about yourself, why BOA? A time you find a problem and took initiative to solve it?

Feb 19, 2020

Can I assume it's a no for me if I haven't heard back at this point? PWP's program is also on 3/5 - 3/6 and I need to get back to them by this Friday.

Feb 19, 2020

Yea, im guessing it a no for me too.... The event is in 2 weeks, there is no way we hear back with a yes at this point.

so all acceptances have gone out?

Feb 25, 2020

Anyone know the days of the events? They moved the deadline from Feb 2 to Feb 13, so . I guess theres still a chance?

Feb 25, 2020

Just got an email that I don't get in.

It's not official, but I heard from someone at BoA that those who applied but didn't get the diversity program invite won't be considered for summer analyst program.

I'm fxxked

Just talked with HR, was told the opposite.

Feb 25, 2020

They often don't know what they're talking about. Heard it from an associate at one of product group.

Feb 25, 2020

So the official acceptance emails were all sent out already?

Feb 25, 2020

I got it this afternoon, but it seems coming in waves

Feb 25, 2020

Has anyone ever attended one their events? Is it in NY or Charlotte?

Feb 25, 2020

It depends on which one you applied to

Guys, just got an email saying that the event has been postponed! Any insights on what happened and when they'll planning to have it?

Mar 3, 2020

Just got the same email. Hopefully they'll get back to us soon, especially because of the interviews

Array

Mar 4, 2020

I think it's because of coronavirus

Array

Mar 5, 2020

Received this information from a senior recruiter concerning the Launch with Global Banking event:

"I apologize for the inconvenience and the misinformation. The event is being postponed, but not due to the COVID-19. We will be in touch shortly with additional information on future events."

"No decisions have been made on your application for the post-poned program, but as decisions are made they will be communicated through to your email."

I just got a first round HireVue for this. Do they send the HireVue invite for everyone who applies?

Apr 27, 2020

Final selections for this were already made a long time ago

Array

Apr 27, 2020

wait. im confused. why are they still accepting applications then? I just got a hireveu invite too.

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Apr 27, 2020

They moved the dates so that is why they opened applications again.

Apr 27, 2020

i got one as well today, but mine was for all locations **not ** in NY. would love to hear any useful tips/info about the first round interview if anyone has any insight

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Apr 27, 2020

I mean I am assuming mine's for NY since the program I applied was supposed to be in NY:

Congratulations! After reviewing your application, we are pleased to invite you to submit a first round on demand video interview for the Bank of America 2020 Spring Diversity & Inclusion Forums - Step Ahead with Banking and Markets - New York.

Did you apply to this one as well?

Apr 27, 2020

so this hirevue is pointless then??

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Apr 27, 2020

It's on demand. That means there is an actual person on the other end that sends the invite. I don't think they would bother to send the invite if it was pointless/recruiting was done.

Apr 27, 2020

hm okay. well it was only 10 minutes so i just finished it up right now. crossing fingers. i wasn't exactly sure what this even was when i applied.

Apr 27, 2020

i totally forgot i even applied to this but im asian so im not sure if that even counts

does this program include an interview for SA 2021?

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Apr 27, 2020

If selected for the forum, the final day of the forum is interviews for SA 2021.

Apr 27, 2020

The email I got (for Charlotte) said "receive interview preparation as well as early consideration for 2021 internship programs" but don't know if the last part means getting an interview for the 2021 internships.

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Apr 27, 2020

Yea I think it is an accelerated process for 2021 internships. So early consideration would mean interviews

Apr 27, 2020

If you get invited to a regional office program, can you still interview for the NY office for summer 2021?

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Apr 27, 2020

I have no idea but if I had to guess, no. Since most banks want you to be a part of only one interview process (even though you can give multiple preferences).

Apr 28, 2020

i got a call from hr just telling me i was chosen to do the hirevue...wtf? i asked

also, it's for one of the regional offices but i only applied to nyc? I am so confused - i thought this program already started :/

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Apr 28, 2020

I spoke to the HR. They said the NYC office already completed its accelerated process. How easy does BofA make its diversity interviews?

Apr 29, 2020

Interviews are later this summer. They were originally supposed to be in March but obviously got moved

Apr 29, 2020

Got an on demand video interview for "2020 Spring Diversity & Inclusion Forums - Step Ahead with Banking and Markets - New York" and also a survey for "Global Banking and Markets Invite-Only Webcasts" as to my regional line of business preferences.

Anyone taken the interview yet and know the questions?

Apr 29, 2020

I am getting a "There has been a problem contacting the test provider please try again later" error when I try to start the first round on demand video interview. Anyone else having this problem?

Apr 29, 2020

Yea, I'm getting the same error message :/

Apr 29, 2020

Well hopefully they fix it and extend the deadline :)

  • Prospect in IB-M&A

I am getting the same error.

Apr 30, 2020

did anyone get a reply from HR as to how to submit the video interview since there was that error that prevented us from doing that?

Just heard back from HR. They extended the period to 12 PM EST tomorrow for interview submissions.

Has anyone gotten word back yet?

May 4, 2020

I got an email last week saying that the deadline for the HireVue for Charlotte was moved to today (May 4th) and that I will be hearing back on May 11th if they're moving forward with my candidacy.

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
May 4, 2020

I'm waiting for updates too

May 11, 2020

Did anyone hear back after the hirevue?

May 11, 2020

I'm still waiting

May 12, 2020

Did anyone get a response? When do we suppose to hear back?

May 13, 2020

i heard back on may 8th. i finished my interview on may 4th.

the email i got was sent to a total of 48 other emails. i got invited for the virtual forum. hopes this helps.

May 13, 2020

Was it an invite for the step ahead with banking and markets forum or the diverse abilities one?

May 13, 2020

no this is for Launch with Global Banking

May 13, 2020

Did anyone hear back for the diverse abilities forum yet?

May 15, 2020

Have you heard back yet? I haven't, so I assume I didn't get in since we were supposed to hear back this week, but I just wanted to double check

May 15, 2020

I just heard back today!

May 15, 2020

never mind, just got in!

May 13, 2020

Did anyone hear back after hirevue for launch with global banking? I submitted my hireVue on May 3rd and still haven't hear back lol.

May 13, 2020

yeah. heard back on may 8th

May 14, 2020

lol this is not good for me. I still didn't hear back.

May 15, 2020

do you know what is the date of the forum? I assume I was rejected since I still have not heard back.

May 15, 2020

After the online interview, I have gotten this email confirming my place for the Global Corporate and Investment Banking Webcast Series: Introduction to Global Corporate & Investment Banking - is this the same as the 'step ahead with banking and markets' insight/forum?

May 15, 2020

No, I got that too, but I think the webcast is not selective. I may be wrong though.

May 16, 2020

That's exactly what I was thinking! So confused now

May 16, 2020

i did not get that. whats the difference?

May 16, 2020

Not quite sure, one has 'webcast' in it's name so much be a webinar, and the other seems to be some sort of a spring week. Really curious as to what the online interview was for now haha. @giriboy" does that mean you heard back from them about some other programme/webcast? (of course you don't have to share if you don't want to)

May 20, 2020

Just got an email to set up a phone call interview for SA 2021. A little earlier I got an email about final round interviews starting fairly soon. Is the one phone call the final round interview???

2 phone calls combined were the final round. I finished up earlier this week.
