Anyone know what score you need on online assessments in order to pass? Or can you get a referral and have a good cv and the online assessment isn't a big deal- would love some insight on this

The test is a big deal. A friend got blocked by HR from interviewing even tho he had referrals from top people because of his score.

Anyone who applied to more than one CS location notice that they can only edit non-NYC apps? My NYC app just says view submission and not view/edit like the others. Does that mean someone has seen my NYC app?

I have heard august from a recruiter and someone at the firm.

Anybody doing NYC S&T heard back? I got a rec but scared I messed up the online assessment and I've been dinged

I thought it was easy lol. I finished with 30 seconds left over on numerical reasoning. Logical reasoning was a little tougher and was confused on some but still got through it all.

Yeah if you screwed up the assessment too much you get cut unfortunately. CS values the assessment a lot and you need to reach a certain threshold to get pass HR, even if you have a MD referral.

It's only 1 test per account and it will be attached to all your applications. So you can't redo it until the next 8 months or something for all applications on the account.

I took once last week for 'A'  location and got invitation for the online assessment again for another region 'B' (not US). General HR email said they would send another email with the test link and details for 'B' shortly, but I haven't got. In this situation, HR in 'B' knew that I've already took my test previously, so they didn't send the link?

I disagree. I was close with a recruiting lead and one of my alums was the group head so me and a classmate of mine both had the MD's referral. The recruiting lead told my friend that he couldn't move on because he didn't meet the cutoff on the tests even though he had the MD's referral.

You probably did better than what you thought.

Starts in mid june as far as I'm aware from talking to alumni. Only group specific 1st rounds have come out. At least for non-diversity.

Does CS FIG have a different application process?

Yes their process is seperate. They take CVs from the generalist pool and take them in their own process.

Received first round for NY IB at target earlier today (or yesterday I guess), networked a decent bit

Got into CS Houston IB around mid-April. Did not feel like I did very well the assessment but I took it the day before superday. Ultimately proved tech knowledge and fit in interviews which is far more important.

Anyone got first round for NYC non-diversity? Seems like they are supposed to start late May/early June according to people were saying

I did this past weekend for this Friday. If you did not, I would not worry, I was told process would kick off in July so you never know with this stuff.

Was just told by an analyst, who is in contact with HR, that they are still reviewing resumes and that we all should be hearing back in the next few weeks about first rounds.

Anyone else's NYC app say updated June 14th but there's no actual update? I definitely didn't submit an updated resume so not sure what it updated. My other locations don't have any updates for the last 2 months.

My account shows the same thing as yours. Maybe it means our resumes were accessed to be reviewed by the recruiting team? Do you go to a target with dedicated school recruiting team, if so that might be the case for us

  • Prospect in IB - Gen
Jun 24, 2021 - 8:10pm

I don't think I have a dedicated school recruiting team as there's only 1 alumni from my school, at least in IBD. I was hoping that it meant we passed the tests or something and that our app is officially being reviewed, similar to what you said. The only way we'll know it means anything is if other people's app didn't update on June 14th. Seems like some 1st rounds have come out in some degree, so not sure if we got cut. What do your contacts say on timeline?

Did not network at all and was not expecting this. I applied for the Women's mentor program back in March and thought it was long gone since I knew that other people have gotten offers already. Non-target as well.

Just got offered for this program. Like someone said, it was not really technical at all. Basic valuation questions and that is it. Really just trying to get to know you. But I was asked a mental math question which did catch me off guard.

If I still don't have a first round for NY Coverage & Advisory, am I done? I am non-diversity, target, networked with a few, but no news so far

I don't know. I also haven't received a 1st round. Last year when 1st rounds came out, there were like 20 people on the thread all saying they received them at the same time. That can't be seen on this thread. Just a bunch of one off people who claim they got 1st rounds. Might be diversity stuff.
