Blackrock AMG or PAG

So the initial shock from being rejected from numerous banks (applied to 10 banks, 9 first rounds, 5 final rounds, 0 offers, semi-target background)has finally settled in, and I am looking again.

I have an interview with Blackrock coming up, and I was wondering if anyone here would be able to elaborate a bit on AMG (Account Management Group) or PAG (Portfolio Analytics Group) and how something like this would look on a resume for full-time banking recruiting in the fall.

Not 100% sure, but from what I gather, PAG seems to consist of using Blackrock's software to do risk analysis and prepare something called a GreenBook for the traders. Account management seems to be more client/marketing focused.

I was gunning for portfolio management, but the recruiting said that hiring for portfolio management straight out of undergrad seems a little more rare.

Well I had superday with Blackrock AMG. You better brace... 5 out of 6 kids from my school (target) have gotten rejection. I'm the only one left and I kept getting calls that they are still confirming summer details. When is your superday? This friday?

Ib1, I interviewed first round for AMG and naturally AMG also for superday. I know that someone has gotten offer for PAG but what's bothering me is that idk anyone with offer from AMG so not sure whether I'm waitlisted or what...lol...

AMG can be seen as a liaison role. Support various groups + clients. Can be viewed almost as mid/back from Bank's point of view.

PAG can be seen as risk analytics. Can be viewed as mid from Bank's point of view.

FMG is straight up fin modeling. Very technical. This group would best wso/">suit your marketability toward IBD or buyside. This is the front office role.

I have a interview with PAG coming up as well. Its interesting because I was told that AMG had filled their needs and were no longer interviewing. I guess that another HR myth.

From what I gather, the technical questions during the interview should focus more on fixed income, since they have some of the best MBS modeling platforms and what not... but predominately behavioral to see if you fit in the open culture of the "blackrock citizen"...

Is this the vibe that you all have been getting as well?
