Hey all,
Decided to start this thread for all those recruiting for RBC SA 2021. Apps have been open since fall, but if the timeline is anything like last year IB recruiting will be soon. Also curious for timelines for other divisions.

No idea what the timeline will be in relation to last year, but last year was phone screens in March, virtual interviews in April, and superdays in early May.

Any Ideas for non IB roles? Such as CB/ Quant/ Credit / S&T, etc.

All I know is that the S&T timeline wasn't much later on and the rest came later probably in the early fall.

Muni finance had interviews in October

For SA 2021, even though apps opened in ~Oct and are due March 1st, I was told nothing would be happening until early March and the process is not rolling. So like the person above said I think phone screens/on campus first rounds starting in march sounds right. Besides RBC, what else have you guys seen open already?

true.. I heard interviews this month? is that what you heard? They seem like they are going pretty early. IIRC Greenhill seemed to want to go earlier this spring this year too

Feb 5, 2020

what is HL?

Where would you apply to RBC on your schools career center or on Linkedn? I don't see anything on my target school's career center?

Feb 6, 2020

It was implied to me that you just apply on the website, and if you go to a core school your application will be specifically flagged when you selected your school in the drop-down box

Feb 15, 2020

Can you list the RBC "core" schools?

I've been trying for a week and it keeps saying that they are having technical difficulties.

This sounds about right. They did their diversity process (very short) in March last year. And end of March was when they kicked off phone screens for everyone else.

If it's a superday and you are getting good news you will hear back that same day unless this was on a Friday afternoon in which case you'll get a call sometime on Monday.

Do banks usually reject candidates on the phone or by email?

The apps close March 16... this for 2021?

  • Intern in 
Mar 6, 2020

What do you mean? Application "closing" dates have never meant anything for any bank in at least the last several years. It's always rolling with some places moving faster than others.

Have any non-targets been able to apply online? It keeps saying technical difficulties for me.

Does anyone know if the S&T super day already happened?

  • Prospect in IB - Gen
Mar 7, 2020

yesterday , S& T kids had a super day with us ib too

Mar 7, 2020

I had one yesterday as well--will you PM me?

Mar 7, 2020

Is the application rolling or do non-diversity kids apply any time before the 16th and only hear after? Also, is non-target applying working online?

When you say non-target, do you mean non-target for RBC or general school perception?

Mar 7, 2020

Both. Percieved as non-target and non-target for RBC as well. I fit into that category + non-diversity. Am thinking of applying 2 or 3 days prior to the 16th but just wanted to see if that is the best way to go

Is RBC Equity Research not taking interns in SA 2021? I do not see an application for the role, while all others are still open.

Mar 9, 2020

I applied to RBC equity research so it's on there somewhere.

Guys, I just want to confirm. Are applications for SA2021 for non-diversity, non-targets working? Please reply.

  • Intern in IB-M&A
Mar 9, 2020

Have not been working for me either.

Mar 9, 2020

On the application is says under "Employment Type: Student or New Grad -** Campus Recruitment Only**" I'm assuming this means that if they didn't come to your school, you can't apply. Which means you have to network to get your resume in.

Mar 9, 2020

They didn't come to my school and the application worked just fine for me

Mar 9, 2020

I am a non/semi-target, non-diversity, and the application worked for me.

Mar 9, 2020

In the portal it said it worked but I didn't get an email confirmation it seems . Need to recheck what happened

How much do they care about networking? Is it possible to get a first round without networking?

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Mar 18, 2020

Based off of what I've heard through networking if you go to a RBC core school you don't have to network to land an offer. If you don't , consider yourself out if you don't network. But even if you go to a core school having an internal push always helps.

Thanks for the comment. Mind if I ask what RBC's core schools are?

Mar 21, 2020

Bumping this thread to ask if anybody has heard back from them? Apparently 1st rounds were supposed to be yesterday according to some spreadsheet from my school's career center, but didn't hear back and nor did anybody I know
