Moelis SA 2021

Prospect in IB-M&A

I haven't seen one so starting one for Moelis' Summer Internship 2021 program. Does anyone have any updates with this regard? My contact says that they will review resumes on a rolling basis but interviews begin in late April - early May. Any other updates?

Not sure myself. Know they already gave out offers to a few diversity candidates from their Young Leadership Development Program, but wondeirng how many spots are left.

I heard they got about 10-12 from diversity recruiting. Heard it from a friend of a friend though, so not sure how accurate that is. Also don't know if it's just NYC office or overall

Heard it was 3 guys and 7 girls from a pretty reliable source

Can confirm they hired a couple of diversity candidates, and I believe interview's for regular applicants should kick off anytime now. Will be interesting to see how the FT offers for the incoming summer 2020 analysts class will affect the size of next year's cohort

Spoke with an analyst, said first rounds in late April, superdays/offer in mid-May

May 9, 2020

Hi! I heard the same stuff. Has anyone received an invite for the first-round yet, though?

  • Prospect in IB-M&A

Spoke directly with HR. Can confirm everything people are saying about interviews beginning late April and lasting through May. Only thing I'll add to that is that interviews for regular pool (non-diversity) are not being extended on a rolling basis, as in before the last week of April (the application deadline). Was able to confirm this with HR.

So you'd recommend trying to network hard with people now and then submit the application right before the deadline?

Also heard it was not rolling from guy I know.

I spoke with an analyst at Moelis. they mentioned that while they aren't extended interviews on a rolling basis, they have definitely started reviewing applications.

What difference does it make whether or not they've started reviewing applications, if they aren't extending interviews based off of that?

it's helpful because that means that it'll be better for you if you submit it now. everyone will scramble to send in resumes near the deadline so your resume can get lost in the pile. right now, they'll have more time to review.

Apr 16, 2020

Did anyone else have someone from Moelis reach out and say thanks for applying for 2021, we'd like to have a phone chat? I am so confused as I thought Moelis does not start interviewing until May. Do banks usually do this?

Did u network with anyone before this?

Moelis did resume-drop chats at my school a few weeks ago (target). Had an analyst reach out early last week for a chat, this may be similar

Apr 16, 2020

Top candidates should have been reached out to by now

  • Intern in IB - Gen
Apr 16, 2020

Is it a bad sign that no one reached out to me? The analyst I networked with told me moelis usually put candidates in contact with two people so there is no need for me to talk to more people

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Apr 16, 2020

Yeah in the same position here networked with two people and they said I should be fine. Are you target by any chance?

Apr 16, 2020

non target but Ik people in my school who got the email without networking. wbu?

Apr 16, 2020

i was told by someone on their recruitment committee (a second year analyst) that non diversity first rounds weren't to be given out until end of april/early may. Are you guys saying you got interviews? Or contacts are reaching out to give you heads up notice you will get one?

Apr 16, 2020

Same. I talked to a VP literally yesterday and he told me they're thinking of starting interviews mid-May. Kind of sweating right now then.

It doesn't say it's an interview, it just said phone chat. I'm just confused on as to what it means because interviews don't start until May

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Apr 16, 2020

did they reach out on their own to you/is this someone you've never spoken to before? had a moelis analyst respond to a request for a networking call this week when they hadn't responded in the past for a while

Apr 16, 2020

I had never spoken to her before, but I did network with other analysts

  • Prospect in IB-M&A

Is it alumni? I've had some alumni reach out to me as well - not for Moelis but other BBs who saw my resume and wanted to connect. I don't know if this is the case, but if the email you received is in someway related to getting an interview, I'm gonna be so anxious for not getting one lol

Apr 16, 2020

Not alumni. The call is today, I'll let you know if they mention anything about interviews

Hey I noticed a few people talking about the Moelis "phone calls." I had mine already a week or two ago so I can shed some light. They are networking calls, not interviews. Moelis hasn't started interviews yet. Treat it like a normal networking call. I noticed a few other banks reaching out to set up networking calls (not interviews).

I've had these calls for 3 separate banks so far.

How it usually works is you are on their "list" via attending a recruiting event before, a resume drop before, etc. etc. and they are reaching out in advance to make networking easier for you.

Yea they had an event at my school and later sent a link over having a virtual chat/phone call.
