Hey guys,

Has anyone had any experience with DP this year? Do they tell you whether you progressed to the next stage in the end of the first round like it was in previous years?

Many thanks!

Hey,

I think they are dealing with PWP and CVP in London this year. They'll be informing you of progress on your applications positive or negative I am assuming.

When it comes to PWP, they already started calling for 1st rounds. I got told that in 2 weeks after the first screening they will decide who gets to 2nd round (face to face with DP). Afterwards, they usually send you app to the company itself but idk who decides on superday places, but I guess it would be PWP/CVP

@PetitsucreD1" cyro1994 thanks both!

Yeah I just had a 1st round for PWP and was wondering whether they tell you if you progress on the spot (as was normally the case last year) but I was told the same – that we will find out in next two weeks: )

Apparently, they'll have two ACs, one on the 25th Sept and one in Oct

Did my PWP face to face interview with DP this week. They said first 2 AC's are full and they're in the process of determining the candidates for the last 3 in October time. Fairly technical interview with a lot of biographical questions.

Typical HH interview with 1-2 technicals / brainteasers mixed in.

You will need to run the recruiter through your CV and be able to talk to your experience to date (in detail) and your motivation towards working in PE. You should also know why you want to join the fund they are looking to recruit for (i.e. know 2-3 deals, industry specialization if any and etc.).

Technicals asked were very basic (i.e. how does a DCF / LBO work type of questions). Same goes for brainteasers.
