When does recruiting for 2019 internships start in ER? I know that IBDs has already started general recruiting but I haven't seen much for research divisions. Any info is appreciated.

If you don't know what you're talking about please don't comment on this forum. I mean this isn't a little wrong, it's completely fucking clueless as to the role of an equity research analyst.

You deserve minimally 50 piles of monkey shit for posting this.....

Glad to see a constructive comment.

NOW. Start now, like right now. If you haven't started networking yet, get on it. Apps are out for many banks, get their hirevues done.

Edit: I exaggerated. At least 1-2 banks should have apps out right now (BBs). Keep an eye out for more.

Hi Ayther,

Which banks have you seen with open undergrad research positions?

Thanks

From what I've seen it looks like a lot of banks are recruiting in the fall. Currently, I think JP Morgan's app is open. RBC just opened theirs as well.

MS opens June 1

May 19, 2018

Can confirm RBC (rbc</abbr>.com/ca/en/job/RBCAA008844450/Global-Research-Summer-Associate-Program-2019">https://jobs.)

Citi and Barclays have something up

But it doesn't look like the other BBs have started yet...

Had trouble getting to JPM and MS research apps that were already open for North America

Can't login into the GS portal but they say applications will open July 1 (so it sounds to me like the extremely early recruiting I had heard of was primarily IBD)

BAML only accepting in Asia

Nothing at CS

Looks like DB is rolling back on American jobs

UBS - idk, but probably not given that the others haven't

you designate in your app though that you want to do ER. At my superday they pool all the markets people together but you will only interview with ER people.

Confirming on CS. They don't hire UG interns anymore (except maybe 1 or 2) because they shifted focus to MBA and CPA hires.

I don't get it. Does anyone understand the logic of this move? I thought UG hires are much cheaper

May 22, 2018

ER hires tend to be a little older in general. Not always but usually, you want to get someone with either a few years in industry or a few years in some sort of capital markets role. Otherwise, it's sort of like drinking from a firehouse as you have to become an industry expert and figure out how the ER business works at the same time.

One thing to keep in mind is that ER doesn't recruit like IB so there's not necessarily cycles like banking where every year a new analyst needs to replace an old analyst. An ER associate typically lasts about 3 years with an analyst so you don't need someone on a regular basis. In ER, recruitment is more of an "as needed" basis except for the largest BBs which sometimes have more structured programs.

Also, another thing that plays into the lesser need for ER interns is the uselessness of the position. An IB intern can pretty much start contributing something to the team within the first week or two. By the time an ER intern has made it through one full earnings quarter, they are gone. So you spend three months training someone and never benefit from it. For the analyst, it's really a waste of time, and one of the reasons that you see so few openings for ER interns.

What do you estimate is the total intern class at a BB or MM?

May 29, 2018

How do you guys recommend trying to get the actual internship? I was planning on sending out a pitch + model with my ask for an info interview to just alums who work in ER(sadly not a ton). Is that good? And then from there, try to make the ask about recruiting timelines?

Does sector matter as well? My pitch isn't going to match the sector of the vast majority of people who I'm networking with.

May 29, 2018

I personally wouldn't send a pitch/model. Just talk with them and hopefully they like you enough. I've found ER people to be super chill with a high response rate so you should be reaching out to non-alums as well.

Make sure to ask about the recruiting timelines on the call, yeah.

Sector doesn't really matter for the pitch, it's honestly better to have a stock not in the same sector. I honestly wouldn't expect them to ask you for a pitch during your first conversation but being prepared and practicing for interviews can't hurt.

May 30, 2018

Why no pitch? I've gotten fairly positive responses from people I've sent it out to before, although a lot of people haven't responded.

When will interviews start to happen for these positions?

Jun 17, 2018

Already have begun for some. Get your app in and start networking ASAP
