SA 2022 Recruiting

Hey guys, I probably know I am late to the game for recruiting for equity research but do you know any apps I can still apply to? I've been recruiting for IB, but honestly, I find the work you do in ER a lot more interesting. Looking into a company fundamentally and looking at why it's a buy or sell just intrigues me. What is the interview process like for ER and I've read on this sub that it's a dying field so do you think it's a field I should still pursue. If anyone breakdown what buy-side ER vs sell-side ER is to me that'd be amazing.

I have done two ER interviews and both of them were very different (but also at smaller firms). Just be prepared for a mix of behavioral and market related questions. Maybe some basic technicals but really understand market events. Also be prepared for a stock pitch with specific catalysts.

Okay got it, thank you. I guess I'll keep up with what the markets doing by reading the WSJ every day. Did u get an offer from any of those firms you interviewed for?
