Official SA 2010 interview status thread

Rank: Chimp | 10

Hey guys,

Frequent reader here but first time posting. I wanted to make a thread to keep updates on the BB interview status for summer analysts for this year, 2010. By updates, I mean whether you got invited to an interview (1st, 2nd, superday rounds), when your interview date is, whether your school is a target or not, etc.

Personally, I am curious to know about JPM, GS, and BofaML. Greatly appreciate if any of you guys know the situation for these firms.

Thanks

Nice. Didn't realise MS and Citi had started non-spring/autumn program participant fast track interviews for London yet though. Infact I was certain Citi had only started S&T summer recruiting.
Assuming you're currently on exchange in the UK, were you flown out for the NYC interviews?

mrr2:

OCR already started for you guys? All the banks are doing their recruiting late January at my school.

There's no OCR in the UK. Everyone applies online then interviews are held in the firms' London offices.

Yeah I am abroad in London. The London process is rolling, which kind of sucks because it forces you to do your apps ASAP. Goldman was generous and offered to fly out, hotel, meals, etc ... Citi was not; however, since GS paid, I could have gone to Citi as well. However, I cancelled my interview at Citi because I got called back in the afternoon for final rounds at GS.

If you are a non-target and you applied for these online there is NO way that you get an offer, except for Dynamic Credit (I have never heard of). Every kid applies to these, if you are non-target you have to find a way to stand out. An online application is a waste of your time. I went to a non-target and the only way I got interviews was through phone calls and persistence.

And by the way, don't talk to HR...they are fucking worthless....Call senior guys

Any suggestions on how to do this? My school has an extremely limited number of alum on the street and no alumni database.

oh so sorry mate! may be try some consulting or smaller financial services firm like axa exanne etc.

Ivy target. Offer from GS IBD through the accelerated process.

Dec 19, 2009

how do all u apply for accelerated interviews?

on my career drop some banks have the study abroad option but most don't. and if you don't have study abroad can you still apply for accelerated interviews?

Dec 19, 2009

GS had a non-study abroad superday this past week

Dec 19, 2009

The one on Thursday was study abroad unless they held another one.

Dec 19, 2009

Out of curiosity. Do banks actually ever bother to update their online statuses? I get the feeling that all my applications will just be sitting on 'application received' forever.

Are you referring to GS?
One of mine did actually turn into "Application Under Review" at one point, hah.

This was for fall '09 FT.. it took weeks for the status to update, but much shorter (at most 2 weeks? maybe a few days) for them to contact me for an interview after.

Dec 19, 2009

Wow... lots of people interviewing early for SA this year... all my SA interviews were in January...

Do a lot of people still have interviews coming up in January?

Dec 19, 2009

GS also had an internal mobility superday yesterday for IBD. So past summers looking to go back as a summer in IBD

Dec 19, 2009

The one thursday morning was not study abroad, trust me - I was there

Dec 19, 2009

KB24TD21 - Can you clarify what you said about past summers. Are you saying that seniors are applying for SA positions for this coming June? Are these people considering to be delayed 1 year by doing this? Harsh times

Dec 20, 2009

No, internal mobility is when you spend a summer at GS after your sophomore year and want to come back your junior summer for a different division.

Wish me luck guys.

Why would anyone wish you luck? All you did was apply to all the top banks and elite boutiques. How original!!! I'm guessing you won't need safeties either since you're one of those 4.0 harvard kids

Dec 25, 2009

Damn, have a lot of you already had interviews scheduled for jan?

Dec 27, 2009

So it seems that the first round interviews for London has already started, and they will start pretty soon for Asia Pacific, and accelerated interviews are going around here and there and some are already near the end... right?

Dec 27, 2009

I'm guessing Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co.

Dec 27, 2009

London is still going slow. The main wave for GS, JPM and MS hasnt started yet for IBD....

Dec 27, 2009

Wells Fargo will be opening for apps January 4th

Dec 30, 2009

BOAML (London) have sent out Jan/Feb AC invites for Global Markets

Dec 30, 2009

Anyone have details on Evercore and their recruiting summer process

Dec 30, 2009

Just to confirm...anyone here know about JPM and MS IBD SA situation in London? From what I have heard....nothing major yet...

For people who weren't fast tracked from their first year programs, MS have had one AC and not heard about any JPM IBD final rounds. I assume Jan/Feb is when we'll see most of the SA action.

Has MS done some first rounds for London IBD non first year program fast track?

Dec 30, 2009

All for London S&T:

UBS (October offer)
JPM (second round - not heard anything back, was 4 weeks ago so hopes arent high)
Barcap (first round, did not attend)
DB (outright rejection)

Nothing from the rest.

Dec 30, 2009

Do you guys know if Barclays are all done with SA recruiting? My app is still bloody saying under review and it's been 4 months. I tried calling them but got fed up after being passed around the office for 20 minutes.

They've barely started for IBD. Most of their ACs have been for S&T. Seems like most banks are delaying IBD recruiting till Jan/Feb.

Dec 30, 2009

Does anyone know if there are different interview methods by the U.S. BB's versus the international ones? I am looking at JPM, C, WF, BAML, GS, MS if it helps.

Jan 11, 2010

Wtf seriously??... OCR's have not even begun at my target. They did OCR's prior to winter break?..........

Jan 11, 2010

Nah...right after the break.

Jan 11, 2010

I havent heard anything back from any of the BBs. Most of the deadlines have yet to pass so I dont think that we should be too worried. JPM generally starts earlier than most I think.

At my school JPM is the last, I think it's in Feb for OCR while most of the other BB have first rounds next week.

BTW, anyone know the status for:

CS S&T Equities
CS S&T Fixed Income
Goldman Sachs Investment Management
Goldman Sachs Securities
Morgan Stanley S&T

Jan 12, 2010

at least you guys have OCR....i just did what yatchman did....keeping my fingers crossed but little hope :(

Jan 12, 2010

Haven't heard anything from the US places but got an invite to first rounds at Nomura HK. I assume most NY firms will notify about interviews within the next couple weeks?

Jan 12, 2010

By the way kids, PROOFREAD your resume and coverletters. I cannot tell you how many of you get dinged for stupid little mistakes

Jan 12, 2010

Ditto. The number of startups CEO who can't spell is eye opening..

Jan 12, 2010

I have my 1st round interview with CS S&T Fixed Income this friday. I am a non-target who applied through my resumes being forwarded. I also heard back from recruiters who were letting me know that they would be scheduling interviews with me (Corp Fin) towards the end of the month (Barclays, BOAML, JPM, Citi, MS, most BB so far). CS

Jan 12, 2010

Has anyone heard back from online apps? I haven't heard shit and it's pissing me off.

of all m y apps, i've never heard back from any online ones and i'm a 3.7+ from a semi-target. so i think it's a waste of time--network... network... network.

Jan 13, 2010

Not yet, just submitted last week. Expecting something within the next few weeks...

Jan 13, 2010

OCR's just beginning here.

Jan 13, 2010

Hey guys, how long after the OCR appilcation deadlines did you start to hear back..Ours was due on Monday, and I've only heard back from 1 firm..is this normal or should I be worried?

Cheers.

Jan 14, 2010

I go to a semi-target. Almost all of my OCR stuff is due either tomorrow or the following week. JPM was due at the start of the month and I haven't gotten a reply yet. I'm hoping to get responses a week to two weeks after the due dates, but we'll see.

Jan 14, 2010

3.7 semi-target Econ

Jan 18, 2010

I'm starting to get a little worried...I'm very new to recruiting and all the banks are coming to campus the first week of February. I go to a mid-west semi target. It seems like everybody has already started. The 14th was the deadline at my school to submit resumes through career services for the banks preference list. Does this sound extremely late or is this normal for midwest region?

Jan 19, 2010

dumbyoungbum,
its probably best to see if other people who applied for the OCR jobs have received their replies yet. If they haven't, then I don't think you should worry too much. If they have heard back (people getting interviews), then you should worry.

Has anyone heard back regarding Capital Markets summer analyst interviews yet?

Jan 27, 2010

I guess OCR is probably in full swing for you guys. How's it going?

Jan 27, 2010

i got UBS so far, waiting on Citi, Deutsche, WF, Barcap, and CS.
