Citi SA 2021

Since apps are open and info sessions are starting soon at targets, thought I would make a thread. Any updates on the expected interview timeline?

Spoke on the phone last week, he told me apps opened but that the "interviewing process" wouldn't begin for at least 2 months...

Target school here, was told our applications for our school would open in May / June. Not sure why the timing differs so much from what seems to be the case for other schools, but that's what the information session relayed a while back.

Is COVID-19 pushing Citi's recruiting back at all? I know a lot of the current SA's have had their internships changed and that diversity has not taken place yet, so are we now expecting April/May first rounds and superdays?

Mar 19, 2020 - 3:19pm

I think bm's trolling. Just got off phone with a mate there. He knows nothing about it yet, and they haven't even closed the apps.

100% agreed. Too many people trolling, got told they're still trying to finish diversity recruiting for Sophs and are debating delaying recruitment slightly due to COVID

Was told by multiple VPs that recruiting has not even started yet. Don't know if you guys are just Harvard Yale Penn kids or diversity

Anyone know if target recruiting is seperate/before non-target recruiting?

Mar 19, 2020 - 9:00pm

Spoke to a VP today; said recruiting hasn't officially started, and that they are pushing it back due to COVID. Nevertheless it seems that some groups already had first rounds. This was for IB LatAm.

Wait I'm confused are you all talking about internships for next summer. Why is it so early. I thought applications opened in July or is this thread for Europe or something????

This thread is for the US. Interviews have already been given out at Citi and some other firms. Some other banks will go later in the spring/summer.

Got referral from a Senior Associate in CB. Still no rej/first rounds hear back. Target. People from same school got first rounds for IBD this week. Anyone know why?

Just because someone refers you doesn't mean you'll automatically get the interview. It simply increases your chances.

Can confirm Citi has started interviews. I had a virtual interview last week, received a call back from the MD telling me that they will be hosting a virtual superday sometime in the next few weeks (Email from HR with more details should follow). Probably differs school to school (mine is a target)

Hearing from sources/comments here saying recruitment is pushed, whilst others are saying it's happening rn, one of the only banks I know of with this much conflict regarding starting recruitment time

I am from a target (H/W) and have extensively networked. I am not diversity. Based on the people I know at the firm, interviews haven't officially started. The people claiming they have gotten interviews, including superday offers, could be telling the truth -- but they are on some type of accelerated timeline that isn't available to even the general pool of target school students that have networked.

My friend got IBD first rounds as an alternate. He didn't even network. Do you mean he is on some types of accelerated timeline? He also applied to CB and S&T but no response yet.

Got mine through OCR. No special timeline, my school just has a good relationship with Citi/a dedicated a alumni base. Not sure how it works at your school, but we have first rounds with our OCR team, and then some of us are given superdays. If you just applied through the Citi website, this probably doesn't apply to you.

Just got an offer yesterday for a 2021 SA position in generalist IB! Was in the Early ID program and just did a superday yesterday.

Looks, like they're moving fast again! Same timeline as last year. Some offers should be out now and general superdays will be in late April and early May. Went through S&T process last year and superday was very early May. Top markets group on the street!

Mar 30, 2020 - 6:17pm

Was it take-home? or on the spot? Or did they give it to you before, in order to present it during the superday?

Citi always gives a case study as one of the interviews during the superday?

Apr 1, 2020 - 11:27am

Anyone did superday yesterday 3/31? Any hear back?

Apr 1, 2020 - 11:29am

woww congrats! When exactly did you hear back? Did you interview for any specific group within ny ibd?
