Point 72 Academy 2019 Recruiting

Hello everyone,

Just trying to get a feel for Point 72's Academy 2019 recruitment process.

I submitted my resume and got Hirevue a day later. After completing the Hirevue I was then invited to an "exclusive summer networking night" at Point 72's office in NYC. The invitation said the event will allow you to network with professionals inside in the firm as well as current Academy members. I am just curious if receiving this invitation is going to lead to another interview or what.

If anyone has gone through this similar experience before I would love to hear your insights.

Thanks!

Jun 22, 2018

I had my video interview on June 6th. Took the Wonderlic assessment June 18th....
Now just patiently waiting.

Jun 22, 2018

how was the video interview? with a team member @point72 right?

Jun 30, 2018

What was the assessment about? I have been invited to a cognitive reasoning assessment. Is it numerical or logical or a mix?

Jun 22, 2018

I know of people who have already received rejection emails..hopefully it's a good thing if we haven't heard yet

Jun 22, 2018

Got an email for moving onto next round

Jun 16, 2018

I also got an email about the next round. Going to be attending the networking event on the 28th. I was told that by July 2nd I will hear about next round.

Jun 16, 2018

Did they already give you a first round interview?

Jun 22, 2018

Yes, I got an email for first round

Jun 16, 2018

Does anyone know if attending networking event really helps get you a first round?

Jun 22, 2018

Does the hirevue actually impact your candidacy?

Jun 22, 2018

I got an email this morning about moving on to the next round. I go to a target and will be attending the event on the 28th

Jun 16, 2018

i will also be attending 28th. I got an email saying I will hear about my canidacy before july 2nd

Jun 22, 2018

i was invited to the networking event that happened last week. semi target/target moved past to skype interview. took about 1.5 weeks to hear back after hirevue

Jun 16, 2018

after the networking event did you hear back?

Jun 22, 2018

i didnt go to the networking event

Jun 22, 2018

How long before you guys got an invite for the first video round interview after submitting HireVue?

Jun 22, 2018

a week

Jun 22, 2018

anyone heard back after a skype interview?

Jun 22, 2018

Not yet, hoping something will come through July 2nd.

Jul 2, 2018

Has anyone heard anything yet? It's July 2nd :<

Jul 2, 2018

I got the email about the July 2nd update. I have not received an email. I think silence is a rejection. Not sure though.

Jun 16, 2018

i do not think silence is rejection. Because they said we would have an update about of candidacy regardless...kinda confusing

Jul 2, 2018

Just got an email confirming a first-round video interview about an hour ago. Any tips?

Jun 22, 2018

Same here. What was asked, stuff like that? Specific accounting stuff, or lots of fit, or just investing related stuff.

Jun 30, 2018

Which offices is that for? Interested if anyone has had updates for London.

Jul 30, 2018

I'm doing a first round interview with the London office this Friday. Hbu?

Jun 22, 2018

video interview is mostly behavioral

Jul 5, 2018

Do you know when we are due to hear back about those?

Jun 22, 2018

I heard back today

Jun 22, 2018

I got an email asking for my times for a video interview, and I sent it in. It's been 3 days since, with no response, and I'm getting kind of worried. Is this normal?

Jul 2, 2018

Same problem

Jun 22, 2018

Hey did you hear back? Can you pm me cause I ran out of pms.

Jun 22, 2018

Jun 22, 2018

Jun 22, 2018

I got the HireVue today. Applied a week ago. What are the questions? Thanks guys

Jul 28, 2018

I also just received the HireVue invite. Was wondering the same^.

Jul 30, 2018

Also, wondering what types of questions were asked. Is it behavioral or technical?

Jul 28, 2018

Got a hirevue as well but the hirevue title says 2019 Scholarship for Women. I don't think it's a standalone program, so is it the alternative for the 2019 academy for diversity candidates?

Jul 27, 2018

I got a HireVue for a Diversity program

Jul 29, 2018

Did you get Wonderlic before HireVue?

Jul 27, 2018

No I did not

Jul 28, 2018

Was the super day technical or markets oriented? What kinds of technicals did they ask?

Jul 30, 2018

I'm on my second round interview (applied to the London office, but the NY office does all the interviews) and they only gave me dates during this week and next week to choose from.
