Recruitment Process

From events to online applications and interviews, understand how our global recruitment process works.

STEP ONE

MEET US ON CAMPUS

Ready to create positive change in the world? Good. Let’s get started. We want to make our recruitment process easy, educational and inspiring.

First, check with your career services center and student-run organizations for a listing of dates when Morgan Stanley representatives will be at your school. Make sure to attend our campus events, network with as many of our employees as possible and speak to them about their jobs.

 

STEP TWO

FIND THE PROGRAM FOR YOU

While the majority of our internships and full-time analyst roles are for junior and senior students, some business areas accept rising sophomore and rising junior students for educational programs and employment. In addition, there are also internships and full-time opportunities for individuals who are in their first of their MBA or second year of their JD. Most of these opportunities are within the Investment Banking or Global Capital Markets Divisions. You can check the specific job postings for additional information.

STEP THREE

APPLY ONLINE

To apply for a program, submit your resume and cover letter to our careers website. If your school's career website also lists the Morgan Stanley job posting—apply to both postings.

STEP FOUR

ENJOY YOUR INTERVIEW

If your application is successful, first-round interviews may be conducted by phone, on-campus or in person. We hold final interviews at our offices. Some divisions may hold a meeting at an assessment center for technical interviews, group activities, and informational sessions.

It’s our goal to match the right person with the right job. At Morgan Stanley, it’s our employees who create our future.

Our Asia bankers also conduct on-site events in North America and the United Kingdom in October each year. Check with your career services center and student-run organizations for a list of key dates.

STEP TWO

APPLY ONLINE

While the majority of our internships and full-time analyst roles are for penultimate and final year students, some business areas accept applications from students earlier in their university studies for educational programs and employment. You can check the specific job postings for additional information.

STEP THREE

APPLY ONLINE

We accept applications on our careers website. Deadlines vary by division and country, so check online. We encourage you to apply as soon as possible; the Asia Pacific application deadlines are earlier than other regions.

Clearly list your graduation date and current cumulative GPA, and submit a cover letter. We’re looking well-rounded individuals with diverse backgrounds. Don’t just write about your academic achievements, tell us about your interests, experiences, and what makes you unique.

 

STEP FOUR

ENJOY YOUR INTERVIEW

Some of our divisions deliver testing prior to first-round interviews. First-round interviews may take place on the telephone, via video conferencing or on campus and focus on a combination of technical, competency and motivational questions. Some of our divisions may include language proficiency analysis.

We conduct final-round interviews in person at our offices or on campus. These could be a series of one-on-one talks, technical interviews, and group exercises, depending on the division.

It’s our goal to match the right person with the right job. Let’s create tomorrow, together. Join us.

You can check the specific job postings for more information.

STEP THREE

APPLY ONLINE

To apply, submit your CV and cover letter here as early as you can. We review applications as they are received, and you don’t want to miss out on our application deadlines. Your CV should demonstrate good academic credentials and an actual or expected 2.1 in your degree.

In your cover letter, tell us why you are interested in joining Morgan Stanley and your chosen business area. Depending on which division you're applying, your application can also include several open-ended questions. You may need to take a combination of numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning, logical reasoning tests, and accuracy. We recommend you take some practise tests to familiarise yourself with the format and content of these before you start the real ones. Practice makes perfect!

STEP FOUR

ENJOY YOUR INTERVIEW

If successful, you will be asked to take an initial interview. This first-round interview may be on the telephone, via video conferencing or in person, depending on the division and your location.

The last stage of our selection process usually consists of one-on-one interviews, written tests, an individual presentation and a group exercise.

At Morgan Stanley, it’s our goal to match the right person with the right job. After all, people are our most valuable asset.
