= Final Round Interviews

Jan 16, 2010

It's a day where everything is fucking super, resulting in all the employees at JP Morgan to drop their pants and give each other blowjobs. Do a goddamn search.

It's actually supposed to be a Super(b)day, because it's the day when all the prospective future employees of the firm come together and meet the current employees. When the MDs look into the gleaming eager eyes of ivy league students, they see a world of potential and it makes them smile with immense happiness. Thus, the MDs are happy because they see a bright new generation of analysts to mold to their liking and the candidate analysts are happy because they have the chance to fuck bitches and get paid bank. Everyone is happy and having a Super(b)day!

We are excited to formally extend to you an offer to join Bank of Ameria

Since people refuse to actually give an answer to this person's question, I will do so. A superday is the final round of interviews for a firm. Normally the firm will fly in their group of candidates, take them to dinner the night before (usually with one or two current employees per table) and put them up at a hotel. The next day, each candidate will have 4-12 half hour interviews, depending on the firm. Many times the same six candidates will rotate through the same six interviewers so they can be evaluated on a "level" playing field. Decisions can be made the same day or like 2 weeks after. It all depends on the firm.

Hope this helps.

A superday, as I believe was previously defined somewhere in this thread is simply the final round of interviewing - usually in these cases it refers to IB final round interviews. The superday generally consists of 5-8 interviews with current bankers ranging from associate to MD, and covers both the technical and behavioral aspects of the interview. Generally, some interviews will focus on the technical, others on the behavioral, and then some that mix it up and keep you guessing. The key to the superday is to make the same positive impact in your first interview straight through the last interview. It usually takes several hours, with a break somewhere in between, and by the end many candidates find themselves worn out, and sloppily stumble through the last interview or two - which often results in a ding. The marathon nature of a superday is what makes it difficult, but if you know your answers and can keep your energy up you should be in good shape.

A superday is basically a 2nd round interview (at most banks) where you meet with 4-6 different people. Banks give offers based on these interviews. Most banks have multiple superdays, so it's certainly possible for a bank to have given some offers and still be interviewing candidates.

I thought it was the FINAL round. It lasts all end and you get many different tests including numerical, reasoning, interviews, case studies, etc.

Just like a first round but times 5 or 6 or 7 or 8 or whatever - i.e. more chances to get a guy who tries to make you feel stupid because you don't know as much as he does with 6 years less experience...
