Wanted to create a thread for ER recruiting. If you guys could send updates on apps and interviews that would help everyone. From what I know:

-Citi is done
-Baird is almost done

I know there are also a couple of apps open:
-MS
-Lazard
-CS

Yeah Citi is definitely done. I got dinged after the first round but I know they gave offers. CS has been open for a while though, no? I have no idea where they are in the cycle. I think UBS is also open.

May 22, 2019

How did you even get a first round already?

May 22, 2019

Oddly enough, online application with no networking. Got the invite about a month after I applied.

May 22, 2019

I had a superday there, but didn't get the offer. I couldn't find the UBS app, I found the asset management app.

I asume you are all talking about US right? In relation to London, I guess apps will open in July-Sept, is this correct?

    • 1
Jul 22, 2019

This is correct. Especially with ER in London, it opens later than IB so no rush

Jun 20, 2019

Any updates now?

Jun 22, 2019

I have not gotten any updates for any first rounds. Has anyone else?

Jun 24, 2019

I received an invite from Baird to complete a video interview today. Does anyone know what the questions might be?

Jun 25, 2019

I received mine today. Have you had a chance to do it, how many questions are there? Any technical question?

Jun 25, 2019

What groups are you guys mentioning you want to cover in interviews?

Jun 25, 2019

I'm referring to ER from Baird! I got an online interview today, and I have 7 days to Complete.

Jun 26, 2019

So it's a Hirevue right?

Jun 25, 2019

For MS, did anyone get an online assessment after the HireVue? I few of my friends who applied to MS IB got an online assessment after the HireVue.

Jun 26, 2019

For MS I don't think there is any assessment for ER. Also heard from an employee that they aren't gonna start looking at apps for another two weeks.

Jun 26, 2019

Thanks for the update!

Jun 26, 2019

Did anyone give the JP Morgan HireVue for ER yet? Would really appreciate it if someone could share the questions.
Thanks!

I think Barclays is just about done, with most people getting offers in mid-May.

Jul 5, 2019

From talking to an employee, most of their diversity apps have been sent out in May (only for the sophomore diversity day), but ER recruiting hasn't even started for non-diversity.

Jul 9, 2019

I know 3+ non-diversity candidates that have accepted offers for ER 2020 SA position. They might not be done but recruiting has definitely already started.

Jul 16, 2019

Anyone who accepted Barclays PM me-I'll be there

Jul 21, 2019

What about Barclays NY S&T? Any offers sent out already?

Jul 7, 2019

anyone here going to evercore ISI sophomore program tomorrow?

Jul 9, 2019

No. Was that posted on the careers website? Also, how was the event? Do you have any info about their recruiting process, timeline, etc.

Jul 10, 2019

Just got an invite to a phone interview today from Baird

Jul 10, 2019

same

Jul 12, 2019

Did mine today. Was there anything afterwards for you guys? He said to wait a few weeks until I hear back.

Jul 12, 2019

Best places to apply that have not opened yet?

Jul 12, 2019

Evercore ISI!

Jul 14, 2019

Does anyone know when they open up their apps?

Jul 14, 2019

Does anyone know if JPM has opened up their Buy-side ER apps i.e. Asset Management arm?

Jul 15, 2019

Yeah, its the Asset Management Products program

Jul 16, 2019

Thank you

Jul 17, 2019

any updates?

Jul 19, 2019

I am hearing a common theme of most banks looking at apps in August and then interviews/superdays in Aug-Sept

Jul 17, 2019

Contact at CS said they'll start looking at resumes in august

Jul 19, 2019

Does anyone have an idea about Cowen, WB, Piper Jaffray Wells Fargo ER? I applied to Wells as their app was only open from July 12-15th but there was no option to select that I am interested in ER, it was just a common application for all of the CIB. Some of these are top 10 so I was curious if anyone had info about why they don't have ER apps (i.e. Cowen, WB and Piper)?

Jul 20, 2019

Cowen doesnt take interns. Piper opens august 1. No idea on WB. And side note: That's absolutely ridiculous that WF is only open for 4 days, what a bunch of pricks...

Array

Jul 22, 2019

Yup, apparently last year WF was only open for a day.

Jul 20, 2019

Anyone know about the timeline for nomura er?

Array

Jul 21, 2019

Has Nomura NY opened applications for ER and S&T?

Aug 28, 2019

Anyone know if research falls under this? They mention it once in the title but don't talk about equity research at all anywhere else.

Array

Jul 22, 2019

For those who have accepted ER 2020 offers could you drop a reply below with when you did and for what bank if you are comfortable considering no one knows your username. Also what school or if you are target/non-target would be helpful. Just so everyone gets an idea if those banks have started recruiting.

Jul 31, 2019

Any updates?

Aug 2, 2019

Have a Baird phone interview a week from today, anyone have any idea as to what I should expect?

Aug 4, 2019

Couple brain teasers, some M&I 400, and a stock pitch along with a a couple personals

Aug 5, 2019

Does everyone get the written/analytical test afterward? Or does that mean I did half-decent...

Array

Aug 5, 2019

Any non-diversity candidates hear anything from Goldman GIR?

Aug 5, 2019

Yes, got the hirevue last week

Aug 8, 2019

got superday a few days ago

Aug 12, 2019

Target school?

Array

Aug 7, 2019

Got the Raymond James hirevue, if anyone was wondering. Also, got WF first round next week, heard first a couple days ago.

Aug 12, 2019

My Baird app says "Status: Contacted - 07-Oct-2019". Anyone know what this means? Am I out I guess? Has Baird discovered time travel...

Edit, now its back to the actual last contact date. Maybe a glitch or something?

Aug 19, 2019

Does anyone know whether Deutsche Bank is having an ER internship for 2020 at all? Thanks!

Aug 19, 2019

I have been told DB and UBS arent doing ER internships for undergrads this year.

Aug 19, 2019

That makes sense. Thank you!

Oct 3, 2019

I just had an ER superday with DB yesterday. Waiting to hear back by end of week.

Oct 3, 2019

Just had an ER superday with DB today, so can confirm they are. Not sure about UBS

Aug 19, 2019

Did anyone get an online assessment test from Credit Suisse? Does anyone know what the test entails? Thanks!

Aug 19, 2019

I just got it too, but I would like to know if anyone has info on this too.

Aug 19, 2019

I just got it but can't seem to open the portal bc my taleo isn't working

Aug 19, 2019

Are you able to access the assessment right now?

I'm trying to access it, but it says "The Career section you are trying to access is not available for the moment. The system may be under maintenance."

Aug 19, 2019

Im getting the same error, but theres a 24 hour technical support line you could try to contact. I think I might just wait till tomorrow morning to do it.

Aug 19, 2019

Anyone know when this expires? Not seeing any deadline for some reason...

Array

Aug 20, 2019

Anyone done the assessment yet?

Aug 23, 2019

Both the verbal and numerical sections are graph/reading comprehension. The situational judgement test is also pretty straightforward. All in all, it wasn't anything worth stressing over.

Array

Aug 19, 2019

Did anyone hear back from Barclays as yet? Thanks!

Aug 20, 2019

Anybody hear anything from Baird? It has been a while

Aug 23, 2019

Aug 28, 2019

Did anyone else's application to Bernstein bounce back with a rejection notice? My GPA and test scores are both fine (3.9+, 99th percentile), so I'm kinda confused what I did to trigger an automatic rejection. Their portal just opened, so I doubt they've filled the spots already. Are they filtering out all non-targets?

Array

Aug 28, 2019

I'm at a nontarget and didn't get that from Bernstein, but I applied two weeks ago

Aug 28, 2019

Damn. Must've missed the boat. Most of these guys have been keeping their portals open for months, so I thought I'd be safe waiting a couple weeks...

Aug 30, 2019

Does anyone have any details on Nomura Instinet or BMO? Are they hiring interns this year?

I've heard that BMO is referral based recruiting, but also heard that apps open in September. Not sure which one it is.

Anyone have any updates?

Sep 10, 2019

Just had my Baird first round today. Has anyone gotten a superday there?

Sep 15, 2019

Got notified for a Jefferies phone screen today. Anyone have any experience with this?

Sep 16, 2019

Applied to them a few weeks ago. Haven't heard back since.

Sep 17, 2019

Any updates about JPM, BAML, MS, or CS?

Sep 18, 2019

Got a rejection email from JPM last week; nothing on BAML or MS though. Anyone else have any updates on them?

Oct 2, 2019

I've got a response from MS, but nothing from BAML (already done interviews)

Sep 20, 2019

Had an interview with Barclays this week do they usually tell you if you dont make the cut for superday?

Been recruiting myself and know at least a dozen others recruiting for ER too. For all who care, this is what I've heard:
JPM & Goldman haven't done anything yet. BAML & Barclays have both already had multiple superdays, might have one or two more. Morgan Stanley, Evercore, Jefferies, Baird have mostly finished first rounds, but haven't done super days yet. Credit Suisse & Keybanc are currently doing first rounds. RBC, Citi, and Wells Fargo are done.

The associate I spoke to at Jefferies said they will be doing superdays anytime from mid-October to early November.

Had my Jefferies first round 9/16. Superday this Friday

Sep 26, 2019

jpm and goldman have done stuff already i think

Sep 27, 2019

I think they may have done target stuff. I don't think they've done anything for non-targets (which seems to be most of the ppl in this thread, myself included).
There was a dude from my school who was a JPM ER Summer analyst last year and his super day wasn't until mid-October, so it seems like they just have a pretty slow timeline.

Sep 24, 2019

Does anybody know about baml research superday

Sep 24, 2019

There were two last Friday.

Sep 24, 2019

How long would you typically receive sday after submitting hirevue?

  • Intern in S&T - Other
Sep 24, 2019

Can confirm this. I got the invite but was auto-dinged since i took an offer in another baml division

Sep 25, 2019

Has anyone done/has a Evercore first round/superday? Also, does anyone know how their interviews are, in terms of technicals/fit/markets based?

Sep 26, 2019

I wonder when ISI app is on - looked at the apps over the summer but haven't noticed it. is it closed already

Oct 18, 2019

when you applied, how did you find out about the interview? did someone email you?

Oct 18, 2019

A VP emailed me. I wanna say it was around 2-3 weeks after I applied online. They reached out and scheduled a call for relatively soon after that a few days probably.

Sep 26, 2019

its already closed, and i've heard they have actual analysts email u

Sep 26, 2019

I am curious as to how the interviews are if anyone has any insight on this.

Sep 29, 2019

Anybody know what to expect from an MS superday?

  • Prospect in Legal

Stock pitch, what's going on in the markets, why MS, why ER, basic behaviorals

Many thanks! More insight is always appreciated.

Can anyone confirm this?

Oct 10, 2019

Hello!

Any updates? Also, does anyone know which banks are more or less done with recruiting at the moment?

Thanks!

Oct 11, 2019

Pretty sure all of the MMs and BBs are either finished or in the closing stages. At this point, I think only the boutiques are still accepting application & giving interviews.

Array

Oct 15, 2019

I think MS, JPM, CS still have superdays coming up. I don't know what's happening with Barclays, Evercore is done. I think William Blair just started first rounds, RayJay is still recruiting too. These are the ones I know about. Feel free to correct me if any of these are wrong.

Oct 15, 2019

Yeah, that makes sense. Last week, my contact at JPM told me that they haven't had a superday for research yet.

I can confirm that Barclays is more or less done.

Did you hear back from CS yet (after doing the assessment)? One of my friends heard back from CS last week.

Thanks!

Hey! Does anyone know what the reputation of Stifel's Equity Research is like? I think they are still in the recruiting process and I wanted to get some outside opinions.

Oct 17, 2019

I interviewed on campus with Stifel ER a week ago. From what the MD told me they are finishing up on campus interviews at other campuses this week.

Oct 18, 2019

KBW (owned by stifel and focusing on fig) has a stellar rep

Does anyone know if GS GIR is done recruiting?
