Timeline for Applications

Sophomore Summer / Fall Semester Sophomore Year

The recruiting cycle for junior summer finance internships typically gets started with applications for early insights program emerging in the summer before your sophomore year and continues into the fall semester of your sophomore year. Many of these are for Diversity & Inclusion candidates, but some of them are open to all candidates. There are a handful of junior summer internship applications that come out during the fall semester of sophomore year, but few if any interviews.

Spring Semester Sophomore Year

Once January or February of your sophomore year comes around, expect a lot of investment banking and private equity applications to be released, with interviews beginning soon after that. There is a flurry of activity from February to April as many universities head into finals and then the summer. This timeframe is when many middle-market, independent boutique, and bulge bracket investment banking summer analyst offers are made and accepted.

Junior Summer / Fall Semester Junior Year

If you still don’t have your junior summer internship lined up by the time your junior year rolls around, don’t give up hope. During the summer before your junior year and into the fall semester of your junior year, many firms are still likely to post quite a few applications. Emerging positions will include investment banking and private equity as well as other attractive front-office fields, such as equity research, investment management, valuation services, and more.

Spring Semester Junior Year

Junior summer analyst positions continue to come out during the spring semester of your junior year as well. One thing that surprises us as we monitor applications is how many positions would expire and then pop back up weeks or even months later. These situations typically arise when positions are not filled. Firms often close applications thinking they are done recruiting only to re-post the position after realizing they still have a spot or two to fill.
