PJT Partners SA 2021

Prospect in IB - Gen

Hi all, I haven't seen any information on here about PJT SA 2021 so I figured I would make a thread to see if anyone has any good info on the process (timelines, diversity, target/non-target, etc.)

Once again, the biggest guys on the street are moving low-key, slick, and fast. If you've got all the way to the interview, study up. Good luck to the future rockstars!

How in the world do you prepare for a restructuring interview? I've looked at the HL case and the M&I but other than that, what can I do to prepare?

I recently was hired at PJT. I ended up playing Fortnite with a random person online and it turned out to be an analyst at the firm. I carried him hard during our games and he pushed for me and got me a job. People start playing Fortnite, thats where all the networking happens now.

Looking at the application and seeing that the firm would like to see three references? What kind of references did other people look to? I feel strange just asking out of nowhere, especially since we're all at home at the moment...

May 11, 2020

Doubt this is true. This is exactly what HR told me: "Our application deadline will be in July, and we will be conducting interviews in August this year. While the applications are currently open on our website, there is no need to apply until closer to the deadline as we will not review applications until July."

May 11, 2020

I may be wrong (if I am, someone correct me) but I do not think so - they take extremely small intern classes and have already had diversity rounds. I'm pretty sure they don't do multiple waves and sweep up their interns in one go via the regular pipeline

Jul 21, 2020

Has anyone had a first-round for M&A?

I haven't heard of anyone getting one. I believe they should be coming out within the week.

Women's program yes - This is a diversity program for Black/African-American applicants. Apologies, as I should have clarified. I was just asking to see if all Black identifying applicants got the invite or if it was a shortlist. I attended the Women's program back in April and didn't get an offer but have applied through regular pipeline.
