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.

Feb 2, 2020

Muni finance had interviews in October

Feb 2, 2020

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

Baird and HL are also open

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?

Array
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.

Had a superday today (diversity), was just an extended an offer for SA 2021 in GIB and came from a completely non-target school.

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.

Just had a super day & not sure when we hear back for it.

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.

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.

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.

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

Mar 21, 2020

I would assume they're delaying because of covid

What schools do you guys go to that have got first-round interviews set up? I go to a semi-target where I could not apply through my career center and we had no campus visits and nobody I know has heard anything back.

Pretty sure its been all diversity so far but I'm not positive? If not they likely haven't done much interviewing, I go to one of their primary target schools and don't know anyone so far who's gotten an interview.

It's next week, However something really weird is that RBC seems to have less interview spots then people that get the invitation. Like they mentioned in the email to "sign up ASAP" and when I went to pick a spot almost everything was gone already... No doubt some people are already canned.

Wondering if I should just assume I'm dinged since I haven't heard back either in 2 weeks. No response to my follow up email as well. Only thing that makes me wonder is that I haven't heard of anyone getting a response yet so I'm not too sure what to think.

May 21, 2020

maybe they're just taking their time and moving more slowly than usual considering the fact that none of us heard back? idk what to think either..

I reached out to the analyst that did my phone screen about a week ago now and she said that she emailed HR and they said that candidates would find out "shortly". My interview went pretty well and she said she was surprised that I didn't hear back and as of May 29th still have not so I'm guessing they're just being slow.

As I'm sure many are studying for RBC technical interviews, you can have your Alexa or Google Home quiz you. I recently added some IB accounting and valuation quizzes that you can use and add to at Grillme (https://grillme.dev/). Video of it: https://youtu.be/vRdBhs-A9Do. Hope this is helpful for some.
