When do ER interviews start?

I have had 5 employee referrals to investment banks/asset management firms and I am getting nowhere. I have yet to hear back from 4 of the referrals.

Has anyone else heard anything about first rounds?

I was referred by a couple employees to one of the senior managers at a large Asset Management firm, and they basically said they'll call me when they need me, but until then to just sit tight. Another major asset manager contact said he would figure out what my timeline might be, and that there was indeed no structured recruiting.

ER is all over the place. I already got my SA offer a month ago, as have several friends of mine. We're at a couple different BBs. I recognize that's obviously on the earlier side, though.

Most guys I know are going through their first rounds around now and will likely be flying out in the coming weeks. It's less structured than IBD (to say the least.)
