Suited is an A.I. powered, assessment driven recruiting platform which allows us to more accurately and equitably discover a candidate’s raw potential and factors beyond the resume.

Applications for our Summer Associate Program will open early fall of the year prior to the program and close in December. Please view our internship program page to learn more about application dates.

    • Europe: Applications for our Summer Analyst Program open in August of the year prior to the program and close in October. Applications for our Off-Cycle Program open either in winter for a September start date or August for a January start date. All opportunities will be posted on our careers page ahead of time.

    • Global Full-Time Analyst and Associate Programs: We typically hire a majority of the class from our internship programs. Occasionally we hire additional candidates to fill our Full-Time class. Applications are posted in early August with interviews in August and September.

  • Who is eligible?

  • How many Summer and Off-Cycle Interns does PJT hire and how many receive a full-time return offer?

    • The size of the class varies by business, and hiring is subject to change year-over-year in all of our offices. We do not have a set number of new hires and have flexibility depending on the quality of applicants and hiring needs. Our summer intern class is sized to ensure we have a talent pipeline that can meet the needs of our anticipated full-time headcount, and therefore, everyone is eligible for a full-time offer depending on their performance during the internship. This applies for all our locations.

  • Does PJT offer additional programming for underrepresented candidates?
