As someone who has already (successfully) gone through the WF 2022 SA process, one word of advice I can give is to deal with HR as LITTLE as possible. They are legitimately horrible and will try to fuck you over for no reason. During the process, find out the staffers in charge of recruiting and go through them for everything

Can any other target people confirm that their application windows are June 7-18? At my target school last year we had a separate application window from the general window but this year it appears its the same application.

Same here. I think this year target and non-target have the same window unlike last year where targets had a 3-day window after the general application closed.

I just got the preference survey for "core-schools", I assume this isn't selective (within targets). Anyone else get it?

got one, today and not really it doesn't guarantee first rounds but one step closer. 

I also applied to IB was wondering if you knew the timeline/when we will get the survey like ST

Love that a thread for WF SA 2022 is finally up. I accepted my offer in late May (non-target school), but I am unsure which group I will be placed in yet. I believe it depends on which group needs the most help, but I have been told to speak with people in the group(s) I want to be in for next summer.

Hi, I believe that was for diversity, do you know the timeline of regular recruiting ?

Just got IB first round 5 mins ago. Non-target non-diversity no networking. Have various selection of times next week. If you move on, the super is Aug 26th

Not sure man. I have pretty solid resume/stats so that may be it. Haha I also think I've spoken to you on the Jefferies thread but maybe I'm wrong hard to tell with anon but yours is more unique. Looks like it's a pretty lean round. They have you pick availability from 16 selected hours next week. Since the first round is 30 mins, that would mean they're interviewing at max 32 people next week.

Banker reached out and cc'd another banker. Email was directly to my address alone and my first name was included in the outreach

Was it an automated email or did someone reach out? And if you don't mind disclosing do you go to one of the Southern targets?

Has anyone else been ghosted by their interviewers?  I told them when I am available on Friday but has yet to hear back.

I got my reply on Saturday lol. Do you think the analyst and director will be doing a 2 on 1 with us?

Jul 20, 2021 - 3:04pm

Hey everyone. Can someone give me advice lol. I have my first round interview this week but I'm literally lost. I'm a humanities major and don't know anything, but I'm interested in IB lmao

1) In June I applied for the Black/Latinx Leadership Summit (It asked for my resume and a max 300 word essay)

2) In June, I found out I got invited. I was sent an automated form to fill out my group/location preferences. 

3) July got an email from VP of one the lines of business that I included in my preferences. It was a call to chat and learn more about that specific sector. 

4) Then got email inviting me to first round interview (from CIB email, general)

5) Then got a specific email from an associate to set up interview. He CCed another associate, so it will be a 2 to 1 phone interview. The VP said it would be mostly behavioral and some technical. 

I go to a Top 20 school, but not target. English major with no finance/economics classes or experience. Diversity I assume. 

Any advice? What are the technicals like? 

Jul 20, 2021 - 3:50pm

Get the 400 Question guide sent to you by someone you know in/recruiting for banking and grind that like crazy before then. It might be a stressful few days but you'll be fine. I haven't done the interview yet and haven't dug through this thread too much but I would expect most of the technicals will come from there. If you're a liberal arts major you might get some leeway if you get something wrong. Just my thoughts

I did my first round this week and I only got like 2 technicals that were ridiculously easy. If you can talk about the main valuation methods in a general manner, I think you'll be fine. Mine was mostly behavioral. This is non diversity recruiting though but I imagine your interview would be similar format
