I was told things would kick off summer/fall, but this was in January so it could have changed.

did you receive an invite for IB superday? or did you already have the superday?
Also, which group? Latam?

My 'superday' was over the phone and this morning. I went to an actual event at their office a few weeks ago before everything was switched virtual though.

Mar 13, 2020 - 7:52pm

Congrats for the superday. I have a few questions: How many different calls during the superday? Mostly Technicals or behaviorals? and how would you rate the Difficulty?

Can't seem to find a link anywhere, have a feeling Jefferies is only recruiting diversity rn and doing non-diversity after COVID subsides

Likely true. A lot of banks are ramping up diversity hiring to 50% of intern class. As for the purpose? Getting rid of the white male stereotype of IB/ finance in general and giving underrepresented groups opportunities.

Yeah i've seen a lot of push to make analyst classes half female half male which probably explains the 50%

Interned at JEF last summer and converted to a FT. The firm is definitely making a push to bump up the number of women in the intern class with the jWIN initiative, however I wouldn't worry about it too much if I were you since it's out of your control. My best advice is to reach out to anyone on linkedin who is an incoming analyst there and make the best impression possible. JEF's analysts are incredibly friendly and will definitely help you out, but you're more likely to get attention from incoming analysts who have free time on their hands. Hope this helps!

I got into the diversity event, which was supposed to be scheduled for March 20, but it ended up getting canceled with Jefferies promising accelerated interviews, but I haven't heard back. Does anyone know what is happening with regards to this?

Hey, I recently emailed HR regarding this program, I also got accepted and got that email. They essentially told me to wait; they told me that they have made no changes to the recruiting pipeline and that they are currently in the process of rescheduling the symposium.

Apps opened last week. Was wondering if anybody knew when they'd be doing 1st rounds. Thanks

I heard it was late summer/early fall. I go non-target though so could be different

Got invited to a first round interview today. This is for SF.

May 15, 2020 - 12:45am

Congrats! Can you update on what kind of interview it was whenever you have it? Like mostly behavioral or technical?

May 18, 2020 - 1:50am

Also received first round from Jefferies SF. Heard Houston already had superday in March but didn't give any offers then.

do you have any idea what return offer rates are going to look like at JEF this year with virtual?

May 17, 2020 - 11:24pm

Surprisingly got a first round, non diversity non target, did not apply online but networked. Anyone has any idea why this happen lol? Is that because of my network?

May 22, 2020 - 6:28pm

No, did you? I only had my first round yesterday and was told they'll get back early next week.

Jun 3, 2020 - 8:17pm

No, I've made it through 2nd round and got really positive feedback.

I know an associate that mentioned he hadn't heard anything yet regarding super day. I think they are currently trying to figure out if it will be in office or a virtual.

Hope this is helpful.

Jun 3, 2020 - 10:13pm

Hey man! How did you get your feedback? Did you ask the associate/analyst who did your 2nd round afterwards? And also just curious when the associate notified you when he said he hasn't heard anything about the superday. This timeline is so hard to gauge

I'm currently interviewing for Jefferies SA 2021 and just finished my 2nd round for the Tech group out of San Fran.

After speaking with one of the associates it looks like the super day will be getting moved to virtual and coming up next week.

Non target, non diversity. Quite a few technicals in the 2nd half of the calls. Had an analyst throw some pretty unconventional questions my way.

Jun 5, 2020 - 1:07pm

Oh really? I remember an analyst mentioned they are trying to wrap it up mid June. I'd honestly be really surprised if it's pushed to mid August but I guess these guys are busy since they're a lean shop. But yeah fingers crossed on the superday

Jun 8, 2020 - 9:42pm

You're saying you applied and directly got invited to a superday? No phone screen/ first round??

Jun 9, 2020 - 11:46am

same, got superday as first interview, no round 1/phone screen.

Spoke with recruiting team out of NYC and they said the process won't start until July at the earliest idk what these people are gassing lol

Jun 9, 2020 - 12:04pm

i applied to ER specifically, not IB, perhaps their timelines are different then

Diversity recruiting for NY hasn't even went underway. Not sure on timeline for non-diversity

Has anyone heard anything from SF regarding super days? Did they finish recruiting or just pause?

  • Intern in AM - FI
Jun 26, 2020 - 11:16am

FI S&T is working on first round, will be done on 7/2 cant speak to anything else though. If I had to guess IB and ER are much further along in the process.

When will First Rounds kick off for Generalist Program?

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Jul 8, 2020 - 11:56am

Did anyone else receive an email saying that you've been referred? Does it mean they're kicking off the process? Anyone know of their timeline at all?

Jul 13, 2020 - 6:54am

Around September is what I heard for 1st round in NYC. But, was also recommended to reach out and confirm in two weeks.

Similar boat. VP told me he/she was submitting my resume to the recruiting team, didn't get an official notification for that. BUT I did get notifications before I spoke with the VP but after I spoke with some analysts. Hope this helps - seems like VP level flag is not reflected in the system

  • Intern in IB-M&A
Aug 2, 2020 - 7:16pm

a day after I spoke with an analyst, I got the notification. I don't know for sure if it was the analyst, but he was the only one I spoke with so who else?

Aug 3, 2020 - 2:41am

has anyone heard about the process for muni's group in NY?

Current Analyst just said that they'd be contacting people in a couple weeks. No set timeline by any means right now, and they'll be directly contacting people when they know the timeline is set in stone.

In terms of diversity timeline for NYC, HR emailed me today to ask if I am still interested to interview after attending their diversity event in April. I already accepted offer but thought I'd throw this in there since no one knows their exact timeline

Thanks – I am non diversity and heard from an analyst that first rounds are expected to start on 31st August and are going to be on Zoom.
