    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Overall, this was a very efficient and enjoyable interview process. I found the position through my campus career center, and received an email to set up phone interviews less than a week after applying. Phone Interview- The phone screening included two separate calls with analysts and associates that currently work within the program. The phone calls were quick, 30 minutes each, and were very conversational. The interviewers were engaging and came across as excited about the program. There was a great deal of time for me to ask questions as well, so definitely be prepared with some specific questions to ask. Super Day Interview- About one week after the initial phone screenings, I received an email inviting me to the ICAP Super Day Interview in JP Morgan's New York office. The office is located right in the heart of Manhattan, and is bustling with professionals in every department within JP Morgan. The Super Day consisted of an informational session with current analysts, one case study interview, two behavioral interviews, and a group activity at the end of the day. Again, everyone involved in the Super Day showed tremendous enthusiasm about the program and the company, and the entire day went off without a hitch. One of the behavioral interviews was very fast-paced, and seemed to gauge how you can think on your feet. Also, the group activity was definitely the most difficult portion of the day, as you have to find a way to get the entire group of interviewees to work collaboratively to accomplish a task--not easy to do in a short time with a group of strangers. The remainder of the day was very conversational and aimed at giving the candidate an idea of what life in the role is like, and exposed us to a large number of individuals within the firm. Outcome- I received a call about a week after my Super Day Interview offering me the position. I also received multiple emails congratulating me on the offer, and expressing excitement about the possibility of me joining the team. From start to finish, the individuals conducting the interviews and aiding with the process showed great enthusiasm and genuine interest in me as a candidate--which ultimately led me to accept the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you define Asset Management? Wealth Management? What distinguishes you from the other candidates? The group activity was difficult given the inability to prepare/practice for it.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The offer package was very generous, and exceeded my expectations--hence no negotiation attempt.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I participated in the fall Winning Women program. There were two rounds of interviews: a 20 minute phone interview, almost purely behavioral, to determine my fit for the Winning Women program. Once accepted, I had a Superday of 3 30-minute interviews in New York. These interviews were about half behavioral and half technical. However, since I interviewed for public finance rather than another department, the technical questions did not structure around pitches but rather around a basic understanding of economic theory, bond pricing, Fed policies, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: How would you explain bond pricing to your grandmother?   Answer Question
    • Q: Tell us about a time when you faced a time constraint and had to make a decision on priorities. What did you do?   Answer Question
    • Q: What is a recent development in public finance that interests you?   Answer Question
    • Q: How much do you know about the Fed's policy of quantitative easing? What are your thoughts on it?   Answer Question
