I applied a while back and did the assessment and got my results, however, have yet to get any info on interviewing. If I had to take a guess Id say expect something 2-3 weeks from now.

Jun 13, 2019

I got a phone screen invite

Aug 3, 2019

What was the phone screen like? With what level person and how much / deep technicals?

Jun 13, 2019

I applied to the program when it opened and have not heard back.

Relaying info from HR, non-core interviewing will be starting in late July/Aug and going through September. Phone screens are being sent out to target applicants, and i'd assume blair will have multiple super-days before starting non-core interviews. GL

Anyone have any insight to the process?

Jun 18, 2019

I know Blair has wrapped up all recruiting at my school (target) as of last week (for regular SA, not sure about LIFT but I think it is done as well).

Jun 18, 2019

LIFT isn't done, I still have a phone interview

Jun 21, 2019

Just a data point for anyone interested. I got a request for a LIFT program phone interview within the past couple of days and I'm at a non-core target. Based on the availability for phone interviews that I saw, they might be sending the last of the phone screen invites today.

Jun 24, 2019

When do we hear back?

Jun 25, 2019

No idea. I had another interview the same day with a different bank on a similar timeline, and they said they're sending out superdays on July 1. Given that and the LIFT program date I'd guess as early as Friday or as late as next Friday

Jun 25, 2019

I had the phone interview for LIFT last week. Haven't heard back yet.

Jun 27, 2019

Just got an "additional information request" that asked if I've ever pled guilty/no contest or made a political donation in the past two years. Hoping this is a good sign

Jun 27, 2019

Did you get the invite too?

Jun 27, 2019

Yep just got it this morning!

Jul 4, 2019

are you referring to invite for phone screen or invite for the LIFT program?

Jun 29, 2019

Had my phone screen last week for LIFT. Does anyone know when they will send invites or have they all been sent?

Jul 1, 2019

did u hear back / get rejected yet?

Jul 2, 2019

I have not heard back yet. Idk if they're going to send rejections or if they're still sending invites,

Aug 3, 2019

What was the phone screen like? With what level person and how much / deep technicals?

Jul 1, 2019

Has anyone heard back for the regular SA application?

Jul 1, 2019

Rejected from LIFT but Phone Screen for interview next week.

Jul 7, 2019

I sent an email to William Blair and they replied stating I have not been invited to the LIFT program. It's safe to assume that all invites have been sent out. Good luck to those that have been invited.

Jul 7, 2019

Did you do the phone screen with them?

Has anyone had a phone screen yet for 2020 SA? I have mine later this week and was wondering how it went

Jul 8, 2019

Are you target or non-target?

Jul 8, 2019

Semi target? Not sure and you'll get a different answer depending on who you ask but somewhere between target and semi-target.

Jul 8, 2019

@nzshan or anyone else who's been invited:

Are you flying out? And if so, have you heard about travel arrangements yet? They're supposed to get in touch but I haven't heard from them yet and it's getting close

Jul 13, 2019

Is William Blair still actively recruiting?

Jul 13, 2019

Just had phone screen for FT.

Jul 15, 2019

Has anyone heard anything post-phone screen or know what the process is like? I had a phone call last week but my interviewer said he had no idea what the next steps are (which seems weird?) and wondering if anyone else knows.

Jul 24, 2019

I've looked into the interview database and a lot of people from the past couple of years report a superday after the phone screen, with 5 rounds: 3 fit, one technical, one paper LBO/market size case. This is just from what I've seen though

Have any non-targets gotten a phone screen yet?

Jul 15, 2019

SA or LIFT

Jul 15, 2019

regular SA

Jul 15, 2019

Had a phone screen last week. Waiting to hear back.

Jul 16, 2019

Just got rejection email. I suppose next rounds will be sent out soon.

Jul 16, 2019

when did you receive the rejection? Today the 16th?

Jul 23, 2019

Sorry to hear that. Do you know why it could happen?

Jul 16, 2019

superday invites are out

Jul 29, 2019

Did you have the superday yet? If so, did they say when you should hear back?

Jul 29, 2019

pm me

Jul 24, 2019

when will non target interviews start?

Jul 24, 2019

I have a friend from a non-target who had a superday with them last week, but it was for a regional office so no idea how that applies

Jul 24, 2019

Referral deadline is Aug 1. Sometime in the next 2-3 weeks would be my guess.

Array

Jul 24, 2019

8/1 deadline is for LIFT or SA?

Jul 30, 2019

Got the offer this morning from LIFT!

Jul 30, 2019

congrats- was this for a regional office or Chicago?

Jul 30, 2019

Thanks! Chicago

Jul 31, 2019

Is Blair done sending out 1st round invites to non-targets?

Aug 3, 2019

Don't think they have started... might be wrong, but was told deadline for referrals was yesterday. Most of their recruiting looks to be done in Aug/Sep for non-target/diversity

Array

Aug 6, 2019

Any non-targets have information about the recruiting cycle? First rounds all out? Hear back? Superdays?

Array

Aug 6, 2019

Non-Target here. Got my first round this past sunday night and had my interview yesterday morning. Not sure when ill hear back.

Aug 6, 2019

Which office?

Aug 7, 2019

What were the questions? How technical?

Aug 7, 2019

.

Aug 8, 2019

Had a friend do a superday there almost a month ago. She didn't get an offer so no idea what their status is but they are at least mid-process. Don't think they take many interns.

Aug 10, 2019

Two groups, tech and HC (mostly medical devices). afaik they took 4 or 5 SAs last year, and they only take them for tech. They have already had a few rounds so they may already be done or very close to it.

Any info on how long it took to hear back after the phone interview to see if we got a superday? Non - target.

Aug 10, 2019

^ Wondering the same, from non-target, if anyone has a superday any info would be great.

Aug 10, 2019

I got a superday invite pretty quickly after my phone screen (within a week). It definitely also just depends on when they are doing superdays so don't stress too much

Aug 13, 2019

First rounds for non targets?

Aug 13, 2019

Had mine last week, haven't heard back about superday yet

Aug 13, 2019

Same^

Aug 17, 2019

Got a first round today. It has to be scheduled on Tuesday or Wednesday this week. I suspect a Superday next Friday.

Aug 17, 2019

Great, thanks for the update
