Just bumping this up again. Has anyone heard from Traf yet?

Nov 13, 2016

Not yet. When did you have the interview?

Nov 13, 2016

About 2 weeks ago. I can't tell if the silence is a good thing or not. I know that some people have already been rejected, so perhaps we are still in the running. It's just strange, because they moved so quickly in the prior rounds.

Nov 22, 2016

My junior has no info currently...

Nov 13, 2016

Silence at this point has to be a good thing. I got a no from them the day after the second round of interviews.

The other guy that was in the lobby with me before our first round interviews didn't hear back from them immediately either, but I did. Then a couple days later they called him and invited him to the second round. So waiting to call back certain people is definitely something that they do.

My guess is that they extended offers to people already and are waiting for those people to accept or not. If they don't, you guys will be getting calls. That is my theory anyways.

Thanks Rotterdam!

Nov 14, 2016

This makes a lot of sense, thanks for the insight.

Nov 14, 2016

I have been waiting for a call as well for the past two weeks and I know who interviewed with me on the same day that is waiting as well. how many people could they put on hold? By the way where did you have your interview?

My final round was at Stamford via conference calls with senior people in Geneva.

Nov 14, 2016

Do you know of anyone else who has been waiting like us? on these forum only there are 4 people waiting...did you have yours 2 weeks ago also?

Nov 14, 2016

Interviewed within the last couple weeks and am also waiting to hear anything.

Nov 14, 2016

I've also been waiting for about 2 weeks now. The other people who were in the lobby with me at the final round were given rejection calls early last week. Not too sure what to think of the wait, it's definitely better than being cut last week, but still isn't too reassuring.

Nov 14, 2016

It seems like a lot of people are waiting for the call. Hope everyone who is waiting has already been secured an offer.

Nov 14, 2016

Do you think its likely that no call at this point suggests an offer?

Nov 14, 2016

Great guy right here, hopefully our paths will cross in the future.

Nov 14, 2016

This sounds normal - there are roughly around 5000 applicants for their programs. They will have to go through the selection process and reject individuals who don't fill the bill. However post final round, a callback will be between 2-3 days for a candidate they really like.

Not sure if a candidate would receive an offer before all interviews are wrapped up, as the interviews in Geneva just finished up late last week.

Hi UnfinishedSentence,

One of my acquaintance.
Master in Quantitative Finance with a pristine GPA, CFA, speaks English/Mandarin and has 2-yrs of internships. He should fight in the MMA...
He got called by Trafigura (Stamford, CT I presume ?) in November (but said it was only a brief screening).

Pointer that I have is that Trafigura are looking for someone at a more junior level for the role. However, recent grads from 2013-2015 keep applying and seasoned analysts as well.

I know someone who cracked Trafigura, but later spectacularly crashed... that's story for another day on WSO.

Feb 12, 2017

Care to share that story? I'd be interested in hearing about it.

Nov 14, 2016

Well, it looks like we will all get some clarity this week. I believe that central management has to approve all offers, and Trafigura has been in the news a bit the past few weeks, so I'm sure they've had distractions as well. Anyone have an idea how many people they take in each year?

Nov 14, 2016

Around 20 people. The fact that central management is holding this whole thing up must mean that anyone still waiting is likely pending an offer, don't you think?

Nov 14, 2016

Yeah, probably. But not everyone who receives an offer will accept it, so there might be some Plan B's on standby as well.

No use overthinking it, though. I'm pulling for everybody here.

I heard they hire 30, globally, for the graduate program. I have no idea how that breaks down geographically or by division though.

Nov 15, 2016

Has anyone got an offer today? I know one person who interviewed with me in Geneva and got a call today for an offer. I am still yet to receive any call.

If it's any consolation I'm still waiting as well.

Nov 15, 2016

They might just send offers to US applicants at a later time than Europe applicants.

Sep 25, 2017

Does anyone have any idea about the graduate program from 2017-18 . I wish to know the chances for my candidature with 5 years post mba experience in metal/mining -M&A . Is there any age factor for the Trafigura graduate program. I am now 33 and is there any hope to apply for the graduate program.

I am currently working in M&A and wish to get into physical trading but unsure how to go about it with experience baggage.

Need some guidance pls.

How did it go?

Sep 27, 2017

It's Tomorrow.

Sep 27, 2017

Oh okay, I had a buddy that also had one with them this week and his was on Tuesday. I would offer some advice but I don't have any insight. Good luck to you though.

Sep 27, 2017

How was the interview?
