The interview was both personal and technical. The questions focused on technical financial questions, and we were required to demonstrate basic financial competence. The interview was a panel of three employees of the firm. One was a managing director, one was an associate, and one was an analyst. They represented different industries.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Fairly straightforward two-round interview, the first with a handful of VPs and MDs in the FIG group, the second round with all my future team members in the Broker/Dealer subsector. Nothing out of the ordinary, no brainteaser or 'gotcha' questions; a fairly stress-free and pleasant experience, geared more towards determining personal compatibility than technical skill.

    Interview Questions

    • In the second round my MD asked about my heritage and veered a little into politics, slightly uncomfortable but overall not a big deal   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Nothing to negotiate at the analyst level
