    Interview

    The gentleman was very polite, after a bit of chit chat he asked a few technical questions and a few behavioral questions. There is a second part to the interview with a different representative who was unable to make it and so there will be a phone interview, basically going over the same types of questions to avoid bias in the process.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview

    The process was pretty clear cut. A phone screening that covered fit/behavioral questions to see if there is a fit. Then, JPM flew me out to a superday. At the office, I went through a series of interviews that was mostly behavioral, but with technical intertwined within each question. For instance, if one of your answers talks about stocks, they will dive deeper to see if you actually know about stocks and bonds. Pretty clear cut.

    Interview Questions

    • What's something going on the market and how has that affected JPM?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (Wilmington, DE) in March 2015.

    Interview

    OEN-ENDED QUESTIONS WITH SENIOR MANAGEMENT. THE INTIAL INTERVIEW STARTED WITH A HONE INTERVIEW THEN ESCALATED TO A ONE ON ONE INTERVIEW. THERE OBJECTIVE IS to identify and recruit candidates for employment. Phone interviews are often used to narrow the pool of applicants who will be invited for in-person interviews. I WAS ASKED TO GIVE A DESCRIPTION OF THIS PARTICULAR JOB./...........FOR FUTURE REFERENCE: When applying for a job, the best candidates will treat the application and interview process in a highly tailored, personal manner. Interviews are all very different and change according to the individual hiring manager's personality and preferences. Therefore, when reading interview tips, take them as general advice and best practices. Make sure that you treat each interview as a unique and original process, and strive to develop personal rapport with the managers.

    Take special notice of unexpected tips, e.g., to avoid certain body language, such as crossed arms, while following the more predictable commonsense ones, such as being sure to dress neatly. Likewise, avoid adopting an automatic "one-size-fits-all" approach to self-presentation and response in interviews, allowing for spontaneity, intuition, special rapport and having to deal with especially tough or quirky interviewers.
