Spoke w Director at Barclays Toronto (alum from non-target) - 3 Toronto positions, 1 Calgary position. Recruitment to ramp up mid-late August apparently, heavy in Ivey recruiting but I was told I'd be included in process. National is sometime in August too, spoke w head recruiter and 3 MDs. 1 associate told me they're adding an aptitude test this year to apps. Speaking w BMO VP in coming week to figure out their schedule for recruitment.

I don't have connections at Scotia, or CIBC. Only ER connections at RBC.

I'd love to hear how recruitment is going for everyone else.

Does anyone know what the status is on BAML's recruiting process for Toronto? It doesn't look like their website has Toronto SA apps open but I've received emails saying that the apps are open from my school.

I didn't see anything on their website yet for IB recruitment, i expect something to launch this month. I would assume however that they are probably starting target recruitment very shortly which is why you are getting emails from your school

Right that would make sense. Thing is I thought it was target recruitment, but it was simply a reminder that "Apps are now live, made on rolling basis so apply early!". Problem is that puts me and probably many others in the same boat as you, as it looks like the only apps open are for NYC, Houston, LA, SF and Palo Alto. I'm sure CDN will start soon though!

Not really sure for Winter 2020, but my understanding was that Big 5s won't be done until October cause they go to targets in September for OCR. They may have an accelerated process, but I have no knowledge of that at the moment.

RBC just opened yesterday to everyone.
I'm assuming they already did recruiting at targets

  • hirevues for jp morgan & goldman have gone out to some applicants (rolling basis)

if you have the profile you will definitely have a shot. Im not sure if the canadian banks have a specific sophomore SA program like banks in the US have , but i know people that have got internships at canadian banks the summer before junior year

BAML canada applications arent out yet, they have a reception this Wednesday so i think the applications will be out after that. Citi Toronto's apps drop next week, Calgary has given first rounds but then they ghosted everyone? Idk whats happening there tbh

Aug 19, 2019 - 12:39am

Any idea if Citi Calgary still sending out more 1st rounds? Got my application in after your comment (Aug 11) :(

Any info on interview/superday timeline for GS Calgary? I know GS Toronto is pretty much wrapped up now

Aug 12, 2019 - 8:53am

the guys at GS TO said that Canada-wide, they want to be wrapped up before school starts the first week of September

Good luck to your friend!

CIBC running a soft process for Winter 20 and Summer 20. Sent a resume drop to everyone who came to their on campus summer event. uw/wlu

Has anyone finished the questionnaire for National - finishing it later tonight and wondering what the response rate is like for first rounds.

Aug 14, 2019 - 3:19pm

i have a friend who finished it yesterday; didn't hear back anything yet, but they seem to be recruiting earlier this year and it is rolling basis so maybe something soon

BAML TO up on my school website few days ago as well. Anybody got info on Calgary offices for Big 5? The

Aug 19, 2019 - 12:36am

Heard from contacts at some of those banks that interviews won't be until last week of September

Aug 19, 2019 - 12:35am

Any info on JPM Calgary interview timeline? Posting said they were considering interviews on rolling basis but no one I know has heard back after 2-3 weeks of having sent the application.

Aug 21, 2019 - 8:00pm

networking events take place early-mid september so i expect it to happen right after that

I am a little confused. How is recruitment already near finishing if On-Campus Recruitment in September has yet to even happen?

Also if anyone has any insight on Scotiabank's recruitment I would greatly appreciate it.

Aug 22, 2019 - 12:59pm

Does anyone else have a problem with the Citi IBSA link? I've deadass tried to submit this thing ~10x and it won't submit

Aug 23, 2019 - 9:34am

Hey, was speaking with an analyst and Md at bmo who head up recruiting and they said that majors don't really matter anymore... is that what other are hearing as well? Find it hard to believe

Aug 23, 2019 - 12:43pm

Did you apply online or on campus recruitment? I didn't see a posting for MS Calgary online. Target?

Aug 27, 2019 - 10:08am

TD and scotia have both launched at my school (semi-target) . pretty sure they are only campus recruitment applications, not "global" postings on their website

Aug 27, 2019 - 10:38am

has anyone heard back from national bank after completing the survey/screen?

Aug 28, 2019 - 3:05pm

I can't handle the stress of recruitment anymore, so im not going to apply to any banks. Good luck everyone and glad you find this page useful.

I am putting all my eggs in one basket - a firm in Los angeles

usually the postings will go out at same time , but full time deadlines are quicker and offers are handed out before or at the same time as SA at the latest
