On the general SA 2020 mega thread, someone posted on May 8, "I had first round for Lazard this past Friday so I think they are starting up"

On the general SA 2020 mega thread, @atlas7 posted "Lazard has had a few superdays. Offers have been extended. The goal was to fill around half the class within the first application window. Class size is around 15 interns for M&A/Rx"

I personally know 2 people that have already accepted offers from accelerated superdays.

Also, If I'm not mistaken, the Lazard total sa class will be around 50 interns.

May 16, 2019

Is that total class size across all locations/mm advisory included? And is the 15 for NY?

Aug 21, 2019

There are 15 spots in total for the middle market across all the offices, only about 5-6 spots in NYC

IDK if those #'s are for specific groups or total all locations. Best to ask Lazard directly. If you eventually find out, please post here.

May 17, 2019

Last summer's intern class was ~35 for NY M&A/Rx, excluding middle market. This doesn't include spots in Lazard's other financial advisory businesses like PCA or CSA, which also take interns.

They've been holding first rounds/at least one super day for the past few weeks.

I know of one person at my school (target) that has signed with them for SA20 already in NYC.

Lazard HOU has started first round interviews as well as of a couple weeks ago

May 18, 2019

Lazard typically takes about 30 summer interns for NYC (M&A/RX), probably around 50 across all offices. They had a superday two or so weeks ago (for diversity candidates), not sure about superdays for non-diversity or targets.

Can Confirm that the west coast offices have begun superdaying/ handing out offers

May 28, 2019

I have a first round this week, any advice?

May 27, 2019

Does anyone have more info on their process? Is it phone screen -> superday? Is it multiple superdays or multiple phone screens? etc.

May 28, 2019

I was initial phone screen -> superday coming up soon. I was told there would be another phone screen but never ended up happening. I am assuming there is one superday as I have not been told otherwise.

Does anyone have any updates on Lazard MM?

Received and accepted offer for New York office on May 24th

Jun 15, 2019

Anyone received a first round phone screen recently?

Jun 16, 2019

No, I am also wondering.

Jun 16, 2019

They are doing two waves. If you did not apply before April 20th, then you should expect to hear back starting in July (recent apps opened 2 or so weeks ago). Currently, they have filled half their class size and expect to fill the rest July-August.

Jun 17, 2019

mrferragamo123 is right that they are doing two waves of recruiting, but is wrong about the numbers. All satellite offices (Chi, SF Tech, LA, Boston) are done save for SF HC, and NYC M&A/RX has already filled 3/4 of their class. There will be another process starting in July/August where they will fill the rest of their class.

Jun 17, 2019

I had a phone screen 3 weeks ago and never heard back lol. Thought it went really well and the guy sent me a super nice follow-up email.

Jun 17, 2019

Did you apply for the second wave as soon as the apps opened in May?

Jun 17, 2019

I applied in April lol and heard back over a month later to set up the phone call. I applied through my school's career portal.

Jun 17, 2019

NYC has M&A, RX and what other areas? I thought Lazard SA are generalists and not put into any specific areas. Not correct?

Jun 17, 2019

Capital Advisory, Private Capital Advisory, Asset Management, and Equity Research to name a few.

Jun 17, 2019

Equity research is within Lazard AM

Jun 18, 2019

In addition to M&A/RX, there is Private Capital Advisory, Capital Structure Advisory, and Shareholder Activism. Then there is Lazard Middle Market and Lazard Asset Management, but they are completely separate.

Jun 20, 2019

Lazard started super early at my school for non-diversity (target). Couple of my friends did 1r and supers back in March and received offers before the end of the month (M&A). There was no phone screen for this, just direct superday which caught all of us off guard.

I've heard first round calls happening throughout this month as well, both for NY M&A/RX and for SF/Houston. Some supers have happened, but I think they've moved onto the second round of applications at this point.

Jun 20, 2019

Anyone have any info regarding Lazard MM Charlotte?

Jul 19, 2019

do people know if NY is full already?

Jul 19, 2019

info regarding NY?

Jul 20, 2019

NY not full, have 5-6 spots still open for which there will be a final superday soon.

Jul 20, 2019

Any idea when that superday will be? I thought lazard pushed the second wave entirely back to August/September

fwadjwadj:

Have first rounds been released for that final superday?

I was told by a VP that interviews will happen "sometime in August/September." Fingers crossed haha.

Jul 21, 2019

Have first rounds been released for that final superday?

Jul 22, 2019

Don't believe so

Jul 22, 2019

Anyone know if that also concerns Asset Management at Lazard?

Jul 23, 2019

Are apps closed?

Jul 23, 2019

Yeah, closed the 14th

Jul 23, 2019

Have they sent out first rounds?

Jul 24, 2019

don't think so but I could definitely be wrong, it's getting to when I was told the next round of interviews would start though so should be soon

Jul 26, 2019

Update: just received an intro first round from target

Jul 29, 2019

there will be another superday in the next week or so ... not sure if it's the last superday though

Jul 29, 2019

Can anyone confirm this? I feel like almost everything on WSO so far has been fake news

    • 3
Jul 29, 2019

Yeah that's fair - i had a first round today and the guy told that they were either going to host a superday this week or next

Aug 3, 2019

I spoke with a contact and he said that first rounds indeed have been going out, but they're doing it by school teams. So if you haven't gotten anything yet there's still a chance

Aug 3, 2019

What about if you're a non-target? What's the timeline like? Have first rounds come out yet?

Aug 3, 2019

Is the Boston SA class already done?

Aug 10, 2019

Have a technical phone screen coming up for Houston office, could anybody give me some feedback on what I should expect?

Aug 14, 2019

How long did it take for people to hear back from phone interviews?

Aug 14, 2019

saw that the LA office posted a job on lazard website, does anyone know if they've already filled up most of their spots?

Aug 14, 2019

Missed the app window by a day, but I send an email to the CEO with my resume so I think I'm almost guaranteed a superday. Probably going to turn down the offer though as I have already accepted an ops role in Minnesota.

Hi, how was your first round? Is it technical or behavioral focus?

Aug 21, 2019

  • Prospective Monkey in Investment Banking - Industry/Coverage
Aug 22, 2019

Did you have a first-round with them?

Aug 20, 2019
