Couldn't find a thread like this (besides the HK/Sing one), but thought it would be good for people to know what stage in the process most of the banks are in. Post updates as you hear back from various BBs and the main boutiques/MM firms in terms of 1st round interviews, superdays, etc. This is for non OCR and also non-accelerated processes, so just the general application process timing.

Nov 28, 2012

From semi-target school. 5 guys at school got offer already. All NYC IBD BB

Nov 28, 2012

Which bank?

Nov 28, 2012

CS and GS

Nov 28, 2012

No way... were they accelerated?

Float like a butterfly, sting like the bee.

Nov 28, 2012

Sandler O'Neil has started doing first round phone interviews. Definitely have fallen off the map a bit in the past year or so, but still a respectable firm as far as FIG goes.

Nov 28, 2012

Goldman had their first accelerated interviews (unrelated to spring abroad interviews) a week before thanksgiving. Not surprising at all.

Nov 29, 2012

Also interested, thanks. Although I feel like recruiting is only just beginning

Nov 29, 2012

BUMP... lets help each other out and keep this post updated

I think by the time an update is posted in this thread it is a little bit too late for that

Dec 2, 2012

Still early, but I'll bump this to the top. GS stuff should be happening soon

Dec 4, 2012

any body knows that BB have deadline for referral? MS is Dec 5th i think

Dec 5, 2012

Deadlines for referral? Not sure what that means/have not heard of that.

On another note:

Lazard MM begins it's recruiting process after the holidays (potentially actual Lazard as well?)

Evercore will begin their process with first round interviews in early January

Moelis will kick off their process in the next few weeks, though possibly not until beginning of January

Dec 9, 2012

Updated-

Nomura's summer positions in the US are now online.
Piper Jaffray supposedly had superday already in the past week or so.

Dec 9, 2012

Thanks, they didn't open when I saw it, so I thought that they dont recruit this year lol

Dec 9, 2012

Question if anyone can answer-

The Nomura app has a section where it says- do you know anyone at the firm? It also has a separate "how did you hear about us" where employee referral is an option. I emailed last spring a guy in their London office, and I'm wondering if it would be appropriate to put him under the first section and just say he is an alum from my school. I would probably email him either way to let him know I applied/set up a chance to speak with him

Dec 10, 2012

If you still keep in contact with him, then yes

Did anyone apply to CS via their Virtual Recruiting Center?

Dec 11, 2012

yes w a few resumes from our school being pushed through from alum

Dec 11, 2012

I applied to CS but i missed the deadline.. I think my resume was pushed through via alum however..

Dec 11, 2012

Updated

Dec 11, 2012

WF online application closed (open only Dec. 3 and 4)

Dec 11, 2012

MS definitely didn't end their online apps.

Dec 11, 2012

The Wells deadline was for S&T only. At least that's how it was at my school. They told us if we applied online to their website, rather than through OCR, we'd be auto-screened. But if this is for non-OCR than that makes sense

"You rarely have time for everything you want in this life, so you need to make choices. And hopefully your choices can come from a deep sense of who you are." - Mister Rogers

Dec 11, 2012

This is all for non-OCR (applying online, through referral, etc). WF online was only open for 2 days, unfortunately (didn't get my app in).

Dec 12, 2012

I was told to expect an email regarding the first stage of interviews for WF.The application due on the 3rd and 4th was for the their entire IBD.

Dec 13, 2012

KBW conducting first round interviews

Dec 14, 2012

How does one exactly apply to KBW? cold call?

Dec 14, 2012

For a lot of these places it is really all either OCR or through referral (ie. a contact sends your resume to HR). Not sure if cold calling would work, but obviously better than nothing. Looking at the Vault top 50, at least 5 of them have no online posting.

Dec 14, 2012

Oh..ok I didn't know if they even did OCR because they have no careers section and or no website like Allen & co..

Will add, though Lazard MM is on there and Lincoln has a tiny NY presence and Suntrust has like no NYC presence. Anyone know if Nomura prompts everyone for the online reasoning/logic tests?

Dec 15, 2012

Black Jack,

What was the Nomura test like?

Dec 15, 2012
MinneBanker:

Black Jack,

What was the Nomura test like?

2 parts

Part 1- Standard online math/logic tests- reading percentages, graphs, tables, charts, etc. 20 questions 20 mins; a little time pressed but not bad

Part 2- Picture analogies. Gives you a sequence of pictures and asks you to say which would be next. 22 questions in 10 minutes I think. These can be fairly tough (kind of a either you see it or don't sort of thing). Unsure how much stock they even put into these tests. I imagine if you have a referral they look to make sure that you are competent and passed them.

Dec 16, 2012

Thanks for the help. I also got the test yesterday (haven't taken it yet) but it was immediately after I applied. I didn't have a referral or anything though.

Dec 21, 2012

Most BB's are kicking off first rounds at targets second week of Jan...with non-target recruiting early Feb

FYI GS non-target recruiting is happening alongside OCR

Dec 22, 2012
Mark2010:

Don't believe that this is true. Haven't heard of different time schedules for non-targets vs. targets- everything should be kicking off with first rounds in the first 2 weeks of January and superdays the last 2 weeks of the month (and beginning week of Feb).

Dec 22, 2012

anyone hear anything from the banks / HR for anything of late?

Float like a butterfly, sting like the bee.

Dec 24, 2012

Did any one hear from citi ?

Dec 25, 2012

Awesome, thanks

Dec 26, 2012

Bump- has anyone heard anything from any of these places?

I've managed to get some sort of decent referral at most of them, so I should be able to keep this as updated as possible, though who knows how strong those will be and any help is still appreciated; didn't apply to the bottom 10-15 on the list.

Edit: Saw someone recently added a Lazard MM review for 2012 SA- I'm thinking that was from last year, as I'd been told by an MD at the firm that they would start the process after the holidays- if anyone knows anything though, let me know.

Dec 27, 2012

Jefferies beginning phone interviews. Had something informal today but should be going fully by start of Jan.

Dec 27, 2012

does that mean apps are clsoed for Jefferies?

Dec 27, 2012
couchy:

does that mean apps are clsoed for Jefferies?

I haven't checked, but I wouldn't assume so. Some of these places don't close apps online until like March (but fill up all spots months earlier).

Jefferies looks like it is still up upon checking; that said, I would turn it in asap. They still have openings online for European interns, but I know that that has already been wrapped up.

Dec 28, 2012

BAML first rounds out? Can anyone confirm?

Also GS IBD NY application status changed to "under review" from "received"

Dec 28, 2012

All CDN banks will have interviews mid Jan if you want to update.

Dec 30, 2012

Updated. Post anything else if you have heard back or have any more info. Things should get going with the start of the new year.

Dec 30, 2012

Superday for Citi IBD and BAML first round IB in NY are all out

Dec 30, 2012

Updated- seems early for Citi to announce Superday already, but nonetheless

Dec 30, 2012

The deadline for DB is Jan 18

Dec 30, 2012

anyone did CS interview during 12/10 to 12/14 and would confirm super day is out?

Dec 31, 2012

theboi123 - you sure BAML 1st rounds are out? Are you at a target? Perhaps I'm wrong but I doubt any banks have been sending emails for first rounders Dec ~25th - Jan 1st...

I am not a target, but I would assume non-targets would receive their interviews after targets. I actually heard on December 17th. However, I have not received a date. We are supposed to get a specific date by the 4th.

As for Citi, the superday is on the 18th of January.

I got an e-mail for a first round from GS today but online it still says application received so I'm not sure it's connected!

Dec 31, 2012

^yes

Dec 31, 2012

When somebody says "X Superday is out", does that mean the candidates have already been given invites or that the dates have just been set?

Dec 31, 2012

^ good question. Generally speaking would mean that invites have been sent out to selected candidates. Will try to be as specific as possible though. Besides supposedly Citi, none of these (aside from Piper which finished up recruiting already) are that far in the process.

A Fellow Linguist:

They definitely do take a handful (same as most other banks their size maybe 10-12). Unfortunately they are not accepting applications online, and their drop through referral is over.

Thanks, Black Jack. You're a good guy for keeping this thread updated. I'll be sure to chime in if I hear anything, although I'm mostly going through OCR.

FYI- this thread is for non OCR. A lot of banks will close for non-targets (non ocr recruiting) well before they do their OCR (which they hold spots for). Robert Baird for example finished non-core recruiting in November but recruits OCR at a few schools in January.

TheBlueCheese:

I go to what I guess would be considered a target or semi-target and my GPA is around 3.7- some have higher, some have lower. Everything I have updated (besides what others have posted) has been personal information I have received through some contact or another at the bank. Where there weren't alums at the banks I tried (and sometimes failed) to cold call the bank and ask to speak with those in charge of recruiting for SA or email someone at the bank from a similar background/school as myself. Came into the recruiting season with the attitude that there was no reason to not get at least a first round interview at most everywhere- which can be done with decent stats from a solid school by just getting someone to refer you to HR. Was unsuccessful in these attempts at a few places, which others have fortunately kept updated for me- Citi, BAML, HSBC, Piper Jaffray were some of a few that I had to apply straight through the online app and cross my fingers. Nonetheless, I'm still on the job hunt like the rest of you, so whether I had a good strategy remains to be seen.

I didn't put Lincoln on here since most of it is for their Chicago office. As for that- don't worry about it; I did an interview with them as well and was told the exact same thing. The interviewer was pretty sympathetic really stressed that I should apply for the full time position in the fall because they have more spots then and can take non-core kids. It's rough, but just is what it is I guess.

couchy:

I have no info on Raymond James
BBH is closed (finished accepting last week I believe or earlier in December)

KBW and Blair seem to be running very informal processes this year- they have definitely already done first round interviews for many candidates, but it might be on a sort of 'rolling basis' in that if you have the right people see your resume/application now it won't be too late to still get into the process.

Jan 5, 2013

Qatalyst, which I only put on here since it is a great firm and figured many of you would be applying (despite non NYC), will be reaching out to select candidates by the 20th of January about 1st round interviews. Post any other updates that you know of.

How does one exactly apply to William Blair if we don't have OCR...?

MinneBanker:

How does one exactly apply to William Blair if we don't have OCR...?

-Send HR a message via the website email
-Contact someone directly at the firm (cold call/email)
-Have a referral from alum/family friend/etc.

Those are likely in opposite order of effectiveness

Jan 5, 2013

Ok, i figured. My school doesn't have any alumni (wtf?) at WB, and I emailed HR and was told to "apply via OCR" that didn't exist so I guess cold calling it is...

I think you should have time. Their OCR hasn't taken place yet, and they told me the super day would be mid/late January, so if they are interested there would surely be time to squeeze in a quick phone interview.

This is very true. Some of these places will leave the online postings up until much much later (sometimes as late as mid-feb or even early March), but this is for target OCR students.

Just checked for you and it looks like the positions are still online, so you should be able to apply for a bit.

Whether they are still looking at resumes dropped by non-targets online is another story.

If you are super interested though, you should go check on their site.

Does that mean their process is just later?

*edit: Contacted HR and they said they are hiring from their targets (OCR) only....so nevermind!

I interviewed them (not a target there) back in December, and they said similar things. Basically said they might take 16 kids for the summer and 12 spots were for target schools. Had some pretty high up referrals, so I'm hoping to move on to their super day later in the month, but who knows, crossing my fingers.

For anyone that goes to a target or semi target, has anyone heard back from the BB firms?

We have a different process for CS/JPM but I should know about those in the next 4 days. Same with Barclays and UBS.

Heard today from Wells Fargo that I will be getting a first round interview in 1-2 wks

Float like a butterfly, sting like the bee.

I didn't put it on here because IB operations are mostly out of Atlanta/down south, but for anyone who is interested, STRH is almost exclusively recruiting from their core schools (mainly the southern targets). I was referred by a very senior person at the firm in the division and told to reach back out in March to see if they were looking to fill any other spots.

yea it's going to be extra tough for non-targets this year. seems like most firms aren't looking to hire outside of their target school lists.

any non-targets here who applied to BAML not get one of those survey emails?

I haven't heard anything from BAML one way or another. Mentioned earlier in the thread that I had a referral, but at this point I'm assuming my process with them is over.

TheBlueCheese:

I'm a non-target who had a first round and hasn't received the survey monkey.

I am a semi-target. no email :( I am assuming that email = good thing

MinneBanker:

Who knows- I wouldn't worry too much about it. It's just one bank, and even if it doesn't work out there will be others.

For all you guys in the recruiting process, best of luck. For all the places you apply and all the rejections you might get, it only takes 1 offer- easy to forget.

Jan 9, 2013

Added JMP Group on here as well for their NYC office- they will begin their recruiting process this/next week

Jan 9, 2013

what did the survey monkey ask/entail?

Jan 10, 2013

Pending means they still have to put up the opening on their website right?

Jan 10, 2013
JamesHetfield:

No- pending means they are either still collecting resumes/applications or just that first rounds have not been announced. I'm sure for some of those that they are past that stage but that nobody on here has been notified (for the smaller shops)

Heard today from Greenhill, first round phone interview next week

Jan 10, 2013

Are 1st round interviews, or even phone interviews, indication that applying to those banks is more or less futile?

Jan 10, 2013

BlackJack, just to keep you updated on a few of the smaller banks- I was notified this week by both Oppenheimer and Cowen about 1st round interviews, so I'm assuming all 1st round interview notifications are out for those two firms

Thanks for the update. Oppenheimer I believe is doing 1st rounds on a rolling basis, so I don't think that is fully closed yet. I will update Cowen, though I believe that may be rolling as well.

On another note- Centerview 1st rounds are out.

Jan 10, 2013

Greenhill first rounds are out

If this is the case, when would you think first rounds, or even phone interviews, started?

Jan 11, 2013

Gleacher first rounds are out.

This may not cover all of them, but generally speaking elite boutiques are sending out invitations for first rounds this week/next

Jan 11, 2013

stifel nicolaus weisel application is a due today, but you can still apply whenever. Sounds like first round like be the last week of January and no word on the superday date

Jan 11, 2013

I talked to Stifel today and was told a app deadline of Jan 25

Jan 13, 2013
MinneBanker:

I can't seem to find the stifel app?

Jan 11, 2013

Jan 11, 2013

Also, my contact at Duff & Phelps said their process is starting right at the beginning of February.

Jan 11, 2013

If anyone has info on those other MM firms - D&F types- basically the bottom 1/3 of the list- please post it on here so I can keep this thread as updated as possible. Thanks guys!

Jan 11, 2013

Anyone have any idea where JPM is in recruiting. Someone on a different post commenting saying he already went to a super day and got an offer?

Jan 11, 2013

Anybody know of any deadlines tonight? Looking to see if its worth banging out any late-night applications right now.

Jan 11, 2013

Harris Williams isn't on the list but they are done I think. Maybe very late in the process

Jan 12, 2013
MinneBanker:

Spoke to a friend with a contact there, he said he's pretty sure they're not even "close to done" but are underway.

Jan 12, 2013

Harris Williams hard deadline for the drop is the 25th.

Jan 12, 2013

15th for barclays

Jan 12, 2013

Does anyone have info on Deutsche Bank?

I know Barclays is doing interviews at some schools and super day should be late Jan/first week Feb (but there may be additional ones)

UBS has a super day scheduled for January 18- again, there may be additional days later in the month

Finally contacted by a recruiter from Citi for a phone interview after an MD that I met at an event last month connected us. Applied in late November for Summer Associate position but checked my status on their recruitment page and it still says that my application has been received and under consideration.

Will update you guys after I speak with the recruiter.

Jan 12, 2013

vegankid you mean summer analyst right? or are you a MBA

Jan 12, 2013
MinneBanker:

Summer Associate. I'm in a MBA program. For my application with GS, summer associate recruiting is same as summer analyst recruiting. Wonder if it is so with Citi.

Are those deadlines only for NYC offices for those companies or just the overall deadlines for online applications?

I went to a UChicago JP Morgan meeting on Jan 10th and got a sheet saying that the deadline is Jan 11th for IBD, S&T and Public Finance. So I am not sure if the deadline is for Chicago only or any application online. Does anybody know how that works?

I'd say its for UChicago's OCR. So if you go to UChicago, those are the deadline dates. Otherwise, its another date, which I'm guessing is the 15th.

The deadlines I have been posting are either for online app or in the case of interviews purely for NYC offices.

Jan 12, 2013

Anyone here have a sure idea of the online application deadline (non-OCR) for Citi?
