Summer Programs Cut

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Mar 25, 2020 7:16 pm

Has anyone heard of V100 firms cancelling summer programs? For those of you who work at V100 firms, have you heard any rumblings of summer programs being cut?

Rumors going around that my V10 is strongly considering cutting the first few weeks for summers and shooting for a June 22 start - 6 week program this year.

Also sounds like they are pushing schools to bump OCI from August to Feb/March 2021 to both get another semester of grades for the schools going pass/fail, and also to get more market clarity before hiring a class of Fall 2022 starters. But that's a different story.

I think it's dangerously optimistic for any firm to assume June will be any better than May. It's only just begun in some parts of the country.

If firms do this, it would probably be more of a cost-cutting measure than out of any genuine belief that the pandemic will be nothing more than a bad dream by June.

Although in any case, firms stand to save a lot on their summer entertainment budget this year. I can't imagine firms doing the traditional summer outings.
