Hi everyone, didn't see a thread for 2020 Citi Sophomore Leadership Program, so thought I would start one.

Anyone have any updates? I just applied at the beginning of this week, so didn't know if there were any people who applied earlier and heard back yet. Thanks!

I know last year they held interviews in the fall

Same, applications last year weren't open until mid-September. Not sure if they're pushing it forward since they pushed junior recruiting 2020 forward

Jun 14, 2019

Do you know if it is mainly diversity?

Jun 15, 2019

Probably all diversity

Applied but haven't heard anything back

Target?

Jun 14, 2019

When I saw a notification about Citi thought I had got something... turns out it was WSO lol rip.

Anyways I'm non-target, non-diversity. I was under the impression targets apply through OCR/referrals but not sure.

Jun 14, 2019

I applied about 3-4 weeks ago and haven't received anything

Jun 25, 2019

Still nothing. Anyone know the recruiting process for the program? Hirevue, phone screens, superday?

Array

Jun 25, 2019

don't expect to hear until september, applications are not reviewed on a rolling basis

pretty sure it goes straight to phone screen (no hirevue)

Interviews are in September/October. Phone screen and then super day. Expect an offer around October

Honestly if you are nondiversity there isn't even a point tbh. I just threw an application in, but I don't expect anything.

completely wrong, there were >10 nondiversity SLP interns this year. example of only diversity would be cs sophomore program. network instead of just "throwing applications in" - serious advice.

Talked to analyst on recruiting team, they are reviewing apps and will send out first-round interviews early next week (Columbus Day ish). Superday at end of month. People have already received positions though at non-targets.

Oct 9, 2019

Some who were part of the freshman insight event received offers already

Does Citi sponsor international students?

Oct 10, 2019

Yes, they do. Have a few international friends at Citi.

Oct 11, 2019

Just received a phone interview--semi target, but was referred by an MD.

For people that got the 1st round invitation on Friday, did you get a confirmation email yet after filling out the survey? I still haven't after doing it earlier today

Oct 14, 2019

Nothing for me yet

Oct 14, 2019

No confirmation either!

Oct 14, 2019

Target urm havent heard anything yet

Oct 14, 2019

Just received phone interview confirmation! I'm speaking with an analyst form non-target, female like me...wonder if it's matched on purpose.

What were phone screens like? Behavioral or technical?

Oct 16, 2019

Behavioral

Oct 16, 2019

Had a phone screen today. What are the next steps? When do people hear back?

  • Intern in IB - Gen
Oct 16, 2019

straight to superday

Oct 16, 2019

Any idea when?

Oct 18, 2019

Did anyone ask what the timeline is of when we hear about superday

Oct 18, 2019

I didn't, but I'm pretty sure superdays are this month. If anyone hears back, pls post!

Oct 18, 2019

If superdays are this month we should be hearing back fairly soon

I haven't heard anything. Portal still shows "Application Submitted". Any ideas as to what I should expect?

Has anyone heard about a superday?

Oct 21, 2019

Did anyone get an email asking them to complete their application after the phone interview?

Oct 21, 2019

I just did. Any idea what this may mean?

Oct 21, 2019

Ditto.

Oct 21, 2019

Not yet. Did you upload a cover letter?

Oct 21, 2019

spoke to someone at citi who said that the email was sent because a glitch in the system was not generating one of the questions on the form. No indication of superdays- everyone received. But hopefully a sign that invites will be sent soon!

Oct 21, 2019

Do we still need to complete the application? Also, did you have a phon screen? Thanks!!

Oct 21, 2019

yes to both

Oct 21, 2019

Hey now now let's be civil, it was an honest question. I'd argue yes for a cover letter.

Oct 21, 2019

sounds like super day invites will be sent out within 72 hours per campus recruiter.

Oct 22, 2019

Just received a superday invite. Black Non-ivy target student

Oct 22, 2019

When's the superday if you don't mind me asking?

Oct 22, 2019

monday

Oct 22, 2019

has anyone else heard back yet?

Oct 22, 2019

Haven't heard..

Oct 22, 2019

Just received superday invite. Monday. Hispanic non-ivy target

Array
Oct 22, 2019

Haven't heard anything... I guess we are dinged

Oct 22, 2019

Is it related to being black or Hispanic? There's specific boxes you check in self identification on the app.

Oct 22, 2019

Maybe, but either way it seems we're dinged. I'm non diversity

Oct 22, 2019

since it's rotational this year and no longer based on preferences there's no reason why all superday invites wouldn't have been sent out today.

Oct 24, 2019

If they're doing multiple superdays, though, they wouldn't notify the second round right now because it gives the second-round students an advantage in having more time. This is strictly my perspective and based on the assumption there will be >1 superdays :)

Oct 24, 2019

seeing that it's been over 72 hours I would tend to believe that all superday invites have been sent out. Guess the rest of us have been dinged

I was thinking that but I'm uncertain. Thanks for giving me a baby sliver of hope haha. I understand this program is insanely competitive so I can take the L.

Oct 23, 2019

Non-Diversity applicant here received a superday

Oct 23, 2019

Same*

Apr 17, 2020

Could you share some of the stats you have (GPA, internship, extracurriculars)?
Thanks

Oct 23, 2019

Hey, has anyone received an email from HR after you confirmed the superday?

Oct 24, 2019

Not yet

Array
Oct 24, 2019

Non-diversity non-target here and my application changed to "application review" a couple days ago. Anyone similar experiences?

  • Prospect in PropTrad
Oct 25, 2019

Will they notify us in the case that we aren't successful? Considering that all decisions should have been made by now.

Oct 28, 2019

How did everyone feel about their interviews? When do we hear back?

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Oct 28, 2019

Within a week

Oct 30, 2019

Anyone hear back?

Bro chill out. They said give them a week. We were all super qualified and it takes time to discern who the best among us were.

Oct 31, 2019

That's true, thank ya

Nov 1, 2019

I will say, I'm surprised we didn't hear today though

Nov 1, 2019

Yeah same.. maybe there are people who got the invite already?

Nov 1, 2019

Sorry I mean offer* and just no one on here.. since they . typically give out offers then rejections

Nov 1, 2019

Did they say we will find out Monday for sure?

  • Prospect in Other
Nov 1, 2019

If we haven't heard anything back since we applied, does that mean we are definitely dinged by now?

Why are you mad lmao

LoL- and you will probably work together.

Nov 3, 2019

Hopefully today!

Nov 4, 2019

i heard thier interviews are way tougher then we thought

Nov 4, 2019

Is there a second superday? Has anyone else heard back?

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Nov 4, 2019

Haven't heard yet, maybe this afternoon. I think that's when they called last year.

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Nov 4, 2019

There's another superday left, 2 have already happened

Nov 4, 2019

How did you hear that?

Nov 4, 2019

^ are you sure there's 3 superdays? Did you go to one of them?

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Nov 4, 2019

Anything?

Nov 4, 2019

I haven't heard anything yet

Nov 4, 2019

I think offers have already been handed out. Those who haven't heard anything yet (like me) are most likely dinged, considering how late it already is.

  • Prospect in IB - Gen
Nov 5, 2019

Offers are out
