Getting started

What is Suited and how does it work?

Suited is a recruiting platform that is powered by artificial intelligence. For candidates, it takes the form of an assessment that provides professional services firms with insights into how you are predicted to perform as a potential employee. We are currently serving the investment banking and legal industries.

Suited is also a place for candidates to discover information related to the professional services industry.

Suited is not a recruiting firm and does not operate as a headhunter, however. We do not guarantee interviews or jobs to our candidates. We allow companies who are interested in diversifying their candidate pools to see your profile, which offers a more in-depth view of who you are as a candidate and potential coworker.

How much does Suited cost for candidates?

Suited is absolutely free for candidates.

I'm not a finance major. Can I still fill out an investment banking profile?

Yes! So long as you are interested in finance and investment banking, we encourage candidates with all majors to complete a profile.

If I am not enrolled in law school/I don't have a JD degree, can I still fill out a law profile?

Pursuing or possessing a JD degree is a requirement of the legal recruiting platform.

In the ecosystem

Which companies can see my profile? How do I make my profile visible to all companies on the platform?

Go to your User Settings by clicking the button with your initials in the top left-hand corner of the app, or click here Scroll down to Advanced Settings and take a look at your Privacy Settings. If you wish to be seen by all of our partner firms, select the option to “Make me visible to all recruiters and companies on Suited.” If you wish to only be seen by firms that have explicitly referred you to Suited, select the option to “Make me visible to only those companies on Suited that directly invited me.”

My school isn't listed - what should I do?

Type in “Other” and you’ll have the option to fill in your school. You are also always welcome to email us with any questions or suggested changes at

How do I provide a GPA for education outside of the United States?

If you attended a non-U.S. institution, please convert your grades to a 4.0 scale using the online calculator provided by World Education Services (Grade Conversion Guide), which can be found at:

How do I know if I have been selected by a company for an interview?

Firms will reach out directly to the email you provide in your profile. Suited will not connect you directly to firms through the platform.

Can I apply to job opportunities directly using Suited?

At this time we do not offer the option to apply directly to specific jobs posted by our partner firms. Instead, you are able to identify your job preferences within the app.

How do I know if my profile is complete?

In the application, all the checkmarks on the left will become highlighted, the home page will indicate that your profile is complete, and you will receive an email that your profile is finished.

How do I increase my chances of getting a job?

Check out our blog for tips! Also, if you are interested in a particular firm, it always helps to apply directly on their site.

Is my information secure?

Yes! We manage your information carefully, using the latest security technology, and take privacy seriously. Please see our privacy policy for more details:

When will companies start reaching out to me?

Firms will only reach out to you if they are interested in pursuing you as a candidate.

For Investment Banking, If you are an undergraduate applying to Summer Analyst positions, firms will reach out as early as the Spring of your sophomore year and through the Fall of your Junior year. If you are eligible for diversity programs, firms may start reaching out to you as early as February of your sophomore year. If you are an MBA student, firms will most likely reach out to you in January of the first year of your MBA program.

For Law, candidates applying for Associate jobs will be interviewed in January/February for roles to be filled in the summer.

How does Suited help ensure a fair process for all?

Suited rigorously tests all of our A.I. models to ensure they do not cause any adverse impact against any protected group. We will never deploy a model that does not meet the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission technical guidelines. If you would like to learn more about how we remove bias from our A.I., please see this in-depth blog post here.

The assessment

What are the assessments like?

Each candidate completes the Suited Psychometric and Essential Competencies assessments. These assessments measure abilities necessary to performing the role for which you are applying, such as attention to detail and critical reasoning, as well as your personality and value traits to determine your fit within a firm's culture and working style.

Together, the assessments should take no more than 30 minutes to complete.

Are my individual answers to the assessment questions shared with employers?

No, we do not share your unique responses with firms. Instead, your responses are aggregated and scored against a firm-specific hiring model. We share what our A.I. determines to be the four most meaningful traits about you, so that firms can get a more holistic understanding of who you are.

Follow up

I have new information to add to my profile. What do I do?

You are welcome to add any new resume-type information to your Suited profile anytime! Any updates will automatically be available for any partners that view your profile.

How do I change my email address?

If you wish to change the email address associated with your account, please navigate to the settings page ( and follow the link to change your email address.

If I already completed a profile for one company, do I need to complete another one?

If you were invited to Suited directly from a firm, you are only visible to that firm. However, if you want to be seen by multiple firms at once, you do not need to complete another profile. Instead, you can simply change your user settings to Public. If you are referred by a second firm, you are able to log in with your previous account and have your information automatically shared with the second referring firm.

How can I completely remove my data from the Suited system?

How can I ensure a recruiter will see my Suited profile after applying to a particular position on a firm's website?

Be sure to use the same email address you created your Suited profile to apply to that particular job.

To check that the firms you are hoping to share scores with can see your results, follow the steps below:

Make sure all check marks are filled in with white for all six sections of your profile (Education, Demographic Information, Work Preferences, Psychometric Assessment, Essential Competencies Assessment, Resume). Once all 6 checkmarks are filled in, your profile is complete.

Once your profile is complete, you can click on the Envelope emblem to see your pending invitations as well as check on your established connections. This emblem is found in the top right portion of your candidate page. If you have a pending invitation to connect with a firm who you would like to see your results, accept their invitation to connect. Toggle to connections tab and any firms who are showing as a connection can view your scores.

If you want all partner firms on our platform to be able to view your score, go to User Settings —> Privacy Settings —> Share my Suited profile “publicly to all recruiters and companies.” —> Save.
