J.P. Morgan 2019 IBD Video Interview

Rank: King Kong | banana points 1,298

Hi guys, sophomore at non-target here.

I submitted my app for JP Morgan IBD 2019 yesterday and just got invited to do a video interview. Anyone else get the video interview? Also, will there be another phone interview after this or straight to superday?

Any insight or advice is appreciated.

J.P. Morgan Investment Banking Interview Process

Anyone going through the JP Morgan IBD application and interview process probably knows what to expect. You've done your research. You've networked with any contact you could think of. You've been active on the WSO IB forum. Congratulations on making the decision to compete with thousands of other intelligent humans to break into this industry. Although there's no 100% set standard, the general process goes: Application--HireVue--Phone Interview--Superday.

Video Interview Tips

With more and more candidates getting invited to do a HireVue, it's becoming even more important to set yourself apart during this stage. It may seem obvious, but the best candidates treat the video interview like an in-person interview. That means professional dress, professional environment and professional answers. Here are some things to consider before and during the interview:

    Before
  • Make sure you have a quiet and clean place to record the interview
  • Ensure your camera and microphone work
  • Practice answers to common behavioral questions
    During
  • Maintain eye contact with the camera
  • Speak clearly, confidently and concisely
  • You may only get one chance to record, so stay calm and confident no matter what happens

Hear direct from JP Morgan here:

Video Interview Questions

In this round of interviews, you're unlikely to encounter technical questions. Instead, most questions seem to be behavioral in nature. Most banks have moved beyond the generic, "Why investment banking?" question. Check out our forum here where community members have submitted some actual JP Morgan HireVue interview questions.

Community member @PotatoSalad shares the questions he received:

  1. Talk about a time when you solved a problem and had to incorporate a diverse set of perspectives in the solution
  2. Give me a sales pitch on something you're interested in
  3. Talk about a time when you solved a complex problem and explain how you arrived at a solution

Hi OP,

JPM came by my university for a networking event last evening. From my knowledge, the timeline looks roughy like this (all of this is rolling of course):

First Hirevues came out today (late Feb)

First rounds (Phone screens) will likely happen March and onward. Superday (for non-diversity candidates) will start on a rolling basis and twice/month beginning in May.

Feb 21, 2018

Thanks for the info. Hate to see that superdays could be during finals week.

Feb 21, 2018

I got the hirevue today as well.
Do you know if everyone who applied in the last few days got it?

Also, do diversity candidates get any preference at all?

And is there a deadline for the hirevue completion?

Feb 21, 2018

Don't know who got it, I wanted to know the same thing.
I'm non-diversity and the deadline is probably somewhere in the email.

Aug 16, 2018

I applied 2 days ago and got the hirevue yesterday, I didn't do yet as I'm still looking for practice resources.

I doubt that the Hirevue was too selective. It's an extra data point for them to evaluate you before they actually commit analyst time to screening you over the phone.

I'd expect anyone who can make it past the system benchmark of GPA (most-likely 3.2/4.0) to receive a Hirevue.

Feb 22, 2018

Just finished the Hirevue interview.

3 questions, 1.5 minute each, only 1 trial each with 50 seconds prep time.

Feb 23, 2018

I just did mine. The questions I got were kind of wack. Do you think they care more about the delivery or the actual content itself?

Feb 23, 2018

Thank god you thought the questions were weird too... I was fine on two but one I wasn't prepared for and IMO sounded enthusiastic but flustered.

The time was so short as well. Last year they gave 3 tries at 3 minutes each.. 90 seconds is hard to give a complete answer

Feb 23, 2018

Do you guys mind sharing your HireVue questions

    • 3
Mar 3, 2018

I only remember one. All behavioral though.

"Give a sales pitch on something you're interested in."

You probably already did your HireVue but this is for other people who are interested in the types of questions. Another one asked about how I solved a problem with a diverse group of people.

    • 1
Mar 3, 2018

Can confirm I received the same questions. @BDWK Are you a freshman or sophomore?

Mar 4, 2018

Interesting. Assumed they drew from a pool of pre-recorded questions because of how random they were. I guess they don't want to hear the same answer to "Why investment banking?" thousands of times in a row.

Feb 23, 2018

JPM= Yello/Phone screen -> Superday

Carl Van Loon
Van Loon & Associates

Feb 23, 2018

Friend that interviewed last fall said he did both video interview and phone screen before the superday.

Feb 23, 2018

It depends. Not always the exact same process. Typically it's apply > hirevue > superday, occasionally apply > hirevue/phone > superday. There is no 100% default.

Shocked to see it starting this early..

Feb 23, 2018

Superdays prior to sophomore summer internships...

Seems like a great idea.

You want loyalty, hire a cocker spaniel.

Mar 3, 2018

In the same boat. This recruiting schedule is the dumbest arms race I've ever seen. I will be at a BB this upcoming summer and would love to return there. However, who knows what could happen over the summer and if I wanted to go somewhere else after the summer... I would have missed the boat.

I am going to ask for an extension until at least mid-July on any offers I receive, so I can at least gain a feel for the firm before I commit to anything the following summer.

Mar 3, 2018

anyone know officially when we hear back after completing the hirevue?

Mar 4, 2018

If you could share the HireVue questions, that would be so great.

you're the goat, I got asked exactly those 3 questions today

    • 1
Aug 30, 2018

Did the JPM East Asia coverage hirevue - did not get those questions at all. Maybe its different depending on the region

Aug 30, 2018

so what were your questions like

Sep 10, 2018

Hey shanghay do you mind sharing Qs you got?
a little nervous abut the technical part - was it very standard or a little unexpected?

thanks in advance :)

Sep 11, 2018

hi can you share the hirevue questions for jp?

Sep 13, 2018

Got the same questions for 2019 FT IB Analyst

Mar 5, 2018

Hey guys was wondering what you all think: do you think it is best just to submit asap or wait till we have networked with people then apply? what have you guys been doing?

    • 1
Mar 6, 2018

bump, also curious as I haven't began networking at all yet

Mar 12, 2018

Heard from friends working at JPM now that they can't do much until superday part (so just submit app now and then network later)

Mar 12, 2018

what do you mean they cannot do much "until superday part"??

    • 1
Mar 8, 2018

Any online test like numerical?

    • 2
Mar 12, 2018

There are no technical questions in the HireVue if that's what you're asking.

Mar 10, 2018

Bump. Has anyone heard back yet?

Mar 12, 2018

Confirmation that JPM received video interview February 28th and haven't heard anything yet. There also haven't been any updates in my career portal.

Mar 12, 2018

Has anyone done the markets Hirevue? Any technicals there? Apparently last year there were.

    • 1
Mar 30, 2018

what were the questions like?

Mar 13, 2018

Is two days from getting the email a strict deadline? Or do you think it is fine if we do it a day late?

Mar 13, 2018

You're not alone. I never got the email but I happened to log into my career page and the message was there. I'm going to assume it's probably not the best as they have plenty of people submitting them within their allotted window. Good luck though.

Mar 13, 2018

Hey guys - do you know if you apply to multiple programs with JPMorgan if you have to submit multiple hirevues? Or do we only submit one hirevue? any insight and advice would be helpful. thanks!

Mar 13, 2018

multiple

Mar 13, 2018

thanks

Mar 13, 2018

i thought only the CIB app was open? I did mine a fews ago so maybe there are other programs open now?

Mar 14, 2018

there are other diversity programs open

Mar 14, 2018

gotcha

Mar 13, 2018

Does anyone know how to access the career portal for JPM? I've submitted the hirevue, but not sure where the actual login career page is.

Mar 14, 2018

same i would like to know, did they change the career portal

Mar 14, 2018

JPMorgan Chase Career Portal - Sign In
https://jpmchase.taleo.net/careersection/iam/acces...

Mar 13, 2018

How much importance do they place on the Hirevue?

Mar 14, 2018

idk tbh - i dont think it is tht big of a deal, i think networking matters more. it could help you though maybe if you are a non-target with good resume and did a good hirevue

Mar 15, 2018

has anyone been invited yet for the April super days or are they still reviewing applications?

ga44

Mar 15, 2018

Are there superdays as early as April?

Mar 24, 2018

I did. Did the HireVue. Phone Screen coming up. Have you?

Mar 24, 2018

do you know what they ask during phone screens

Mar 24, 2018

is you're phone screen with the Winning Women program or is it for the 2019 CIB SA?

Mar 24, 2018

Winning Women

Mar 25, 2018

I did! I'm attending for Markets!

Mar 15, 2018

Application was updated today (March 15th) but nothing changed. Not sure what that means.

Mar 15, 2018

Just checked and mine was also updated today but no indication of what that really means

Mar 15, 2018

Apparently, if the 'Withdraw' button is still present you haven't been rejected yet. Just not sure how long it takes to update in the system if you are rejected. Not getting excited just yet.

    • 1
Mar 15, 2018

hey what application did you check that shows it is updated? what link are you using and where does it say it was updated today?

@BDWK @BDWK

Mar 15, 2018
Mar 15, 2018

where are you guys seeing "updated" and saying that it is "updated" ?

Mar 15, 2018

My Job Page

Should be above the View Submission | Email Messages | Withdraw part.

Mar 19, 2018

I never received any emails saying my applications were updated. You guys? Anyways, I was wondering if you guys think the "submit a hirevue within two business days of this email" is a strict deadline? Now, it's 10 days later since that update...

Honestly, why tf didn't I get an email update about this

Mar 19, 2018

they are talking about an "updated" status change in the portal. no emails are sent after the hirevue at this point.

Mar 19, 2018

Any comments on the "within two business days" part? Is this a hard deadline/am I screwed?

Mar 19, 2018

honestly I dont know man. I figured it wouldn't be a big deal.

Mar 19, 2018

@edo904 @edo904 is correct. I did not receive an email notifying me of the update. All we were saying was that there's a line that tells you when your last update was. For a while, it was showing us it updated when we submitted our HireVue but on the 15th it said it updated yet we received no messages. This could just be a software update or something. Not a huge concern.

I submitted my HireVue almost a week later from when the application was updated and I also didn't get an email regarding the interview invitation. If they ding me for that then oh well. After I saw that, I check my apps every day. Probably a little much but I want to be on top of the updates.

Mar 19, 2018

Mine never said two days. It just said the sooner, the better.

Mar 19, 2018

Gotcha. Mine said, "We ask that you complete your interview within two business days of receiving this e-mail". Which is funny because I never got an email.

Apr 20, 2018

Hi, any updates on your application?

Mar 19, 2018

Is everyone getting the same questions as posted above or are the questions randomly generated?

Mar 19, 2018

I think they're the same questions. I got the same as the ones posted above. The ones marked as "Best Answer".

Mar 19, 2018

Thanks!

Mar 22, 2018

]

Mar 21, 2018

Kind of awkward, and it shouldn't be a big deal if they are hard pressed for candidates, but given the ample choice they have, they have the power to ding anyone for anything -- i.e. it's not an algorithm that has a "pass" / "fail" outcome depending on certain inputs -- it depends on who is reviewing your application, the strength of your other answers, and how they feel about you at the time

Mar 24, 2018

Is it better to apply ASAP or when we're ready/have networked enough?

Mar 24, 2018

I forgot whether it was this thread but a lot of people are saying that for the HireVue, there is not much 1st year analysts can do to push you through. The only time the networking helps is when you get to the superday. I'd suggest adding any internships you have for this summer on your resume and start reaching out to people. So applying now might be best.

Mar 25, 2018

heads up, mine was "updated" again today - still just says completed tho

Mar 25, 2018

Mine still says the last update was March 15th...interesting...

Mar 25, 2018

Mine still says updated March 15th as well! Wonder what these updates indicate...

Mar 25, 2018

Mine's March 25th, but I'm 99.9% certain that those don't mean anything

Mar 26, 2018

Same. Updated again yesterday.

Mar 25, 2018

Does anyone know when you hear back after a hirevue? submitted my hirevue recently

Mar 25, 2018

I submitted mine February 28th and still haven't heard anything.

Mar 29, 2018

I only got mine updated when I completed the HireVue. That was March 20 and no updates since :/

Mar 30, 2018

Mine keeps updating...on the 25th and again today. Hopefully process is moving along soon

Mar 30, 2018

If you don't mind me asking, what's your background?

Mar 30, 2018

Mine updated again today. I don't think it means anything.

Apr 3, 2018

There's definitely phone interviews before superday, honestly, it depends on the groups.

Apr 4, 2018

Has anyone heard back from JPM yet? Someone told me they were doing first rounds already, but not sure.

Apr 7, 2018

Did the JPM app portal appearance change for you guys? It looks a lot nicer now

Apr 7, 2018

App was updated recently

Apr 8, 2018

Some phone screens have come out for SF office, but haven't heard anything from NY office.

Apr 8, 2018

Did anyone apply for the dates in may? any idea of when we might hear back?

Apr 9, 2018

I got a phone screen and first round from the JPM SF healthcare group, but I never completed the HireVue. Did submit the application, though. Interesting...

My phone screen was two weeks ago, and my first round was last Friday (April 6). SF healthcare told me they would inform me about superdays sometime this week.

    • 3
Apr 9, 2018

Wow that makes me wonder if they even care about the HireVue. How did your interview go?

Apr 9, 2018

Can confirm, I also had my first round with JPM HC in SF this Friday. Waiting to hear back on superday this week.

Apr 9, 2018

Just had my first round JPM TMT from SF 30 minutes ago.

Apr 10, 2018

.

    • 1
Apr 10, 2018

Can confirm as well. Had my phone interview with the SF Healthcare team on Friday and waiting to hear back. I'm pretty sure the HireVue is for the New York offices as I completed it after the SF interview.

Apr 10, 2018

How did yours go? Did you network much with the office before your interview? Also, would you assume that the superday would be this Friday?

Apr 10, 2018

Went well, a few behaviorals and then some brain teasers before basic technicals. I would assume the super day isn't this Friday, but really that's just a guess. And I did zero networking with this office, I assume it was just a resume screen for the phone interview.

Apr 19, 2018

When was the application for SF due? The flyer I got from on campus recruitment event (info session) just said TBD lol

May 1, 2018

what kind of stuff did they ask you during the phone screen/how long was it?

Apr 10, 2018

In the same boat--was told that I would hear about superday "soon". Anyone have an idea of when we hear back?

Apr 10, 2018

No clue, but will update if I get invited

Apr 11, 2018

Maybe a bit different from other schools, but the recruiter for our school came yesterday and said this year they will do a "direct offer" format for IBD. She said the candidates will talk to 4 reps either in person or over Skype and there won't be superdays.

Apr 11, 2018

makes sense if you're at a top target haha

May 4, 2018

.

Apr 12, 2018

She didn't specify, but most students from our school apply to the NYC office.

Apr 14, 2018

im in the same boat but our recruiter hasn't been transparent can you pm me? @serenajiao"

Apr 11, 2018

had a phone round as well

Apr 11, 2018

NY or SF?

Apr 11, 2018

sf healthcare

Apr 11, 2018

have you heard back yet?

Apr 11, 2018

Nope, you?

Apr 11, 2018

yea just got the superday invite

Apr 11, 2018

When is the superday?

Apr 11, 2018

next friday

Apr 11, 2018

did you do two rounds of phone interview before the superday? @dickbuttt

Apr 11, 2018

nah

Apr 11, 2018

R there 2 phone rounds?

Apr 11, 2018

Did anyone hear back from the technology group?

Apr 11, 2018

Yeah, invites sent out today too. Also next Friday. I think all the groups in SF may have sent out superday invites today.

Apr 11, 2018

thank you

Apr 18, 2018

It's weird, cuz in the flyer I got from an on-campus event in March, it said that for Chicago office and for SF office, the application will be reviewed after the due date (4/15 for chicago and tbd april~may for sf)

Apr 11, 2018

Yeap got an invite for the tech group in SF

Are you guys from east coast schools?

Apr 12, 2018

Is anyone non-diversity for this superday round?

Apr 12, 2018

I am

Apr 11, 2018

anyone get a superday for healthcare?

Apr 12, 2018

Yes

Apr 12, 2018

are you an East coast school?

Apr 12, 2018

Not an East Coast school

Apr 12, 2018

How did they reach out for phone screens? By email? I'm on the east coast and haven't heard from anyone

Apr 12, 2018

I'm east coast too, they contacted me by email to set up phone rounds

Apr 12, 2018

could I ask more details? did you have contacts there/target school? i thought i had someone pushing me through but idk now

Apr 12, 2018

PM me

Apr 12, 2018

Anyone get first round phone screens for NYC?

Apr 12, 2018

I'm wondering the same. I didn't hear back yet.

Apr 12, 2018

How long from when anyone did a hireview to when their phone screen came out?

Apr 12, 2018

Around 3 weeks for me. Submitted Hirevue late March.

Apr 13, 2018

NYC or another location?

Apr 13, 2018

NYC

Apr 13, 2018

Did anyone hear back for wealth management in SF or any other location yet?

Apr 13, 2018

Anyone heard anything about Houston?

Apr 15, 2018

anyone hear back about supers/first rounds for NY?

Apr 16, 2018

Would anyone mind sharing the 2019 CIB winning women Hirvue question?
Seems like it only has one question

Apr 16, 2018

^bumping this

Apr 17, 2018

Did anyone receive an update to their app portal?
A new job submission appeared on my portal (I did not apply to another one, mind you) and the the submission status was updated today, "Final Candidate"

Edit: pic

Apr 17, 2018

Did you have anything yet after submitting the hirevue?

Apr 17, 2018

I had a phone interview and superday with them via an insight program. Not sure if they would use those results for my general app, though. It would make sense to do so; otherwise, it'd be redundant

Edit: it's also weird that the headline says New York but the line below it says US-TX-Houston

Apr 17, 2018

I see I applied to NY, and I've had 2 updates on my application so far yesterday and sometime last week..don't know what that means. It just says "Updated" with the dates changed

Apr 17, 2018

Hmm. Yea watch out, too, about clicking view/edit submission: the app automatically updates for some reason

Apr 17, 2018

Yeah I have not clicked anything, its been almost 2 weeks since i submitted Hirevue; Has anyone else had updates yesterday ?

Apr 19, 2018

.

Apr 22, 2018

@ihackapple7 Are you recruiting for the New York office or Houston Office?

Apr 18, 2018

Has anyone heard back from the Chicago office yet / know if there will be phone screenings?
Dumbly enough I applied in April, which is not so long before the app closes for the Chicago office (4/15).
Do you think they have already filled up the spots?

Apr 19, 2018

Did you get a HireVue?

I submitted my HireVue February 22nd and still haven't heard back. I don't think Chicago is a priority for them right now but I could be wrong.

Apr 19, 2018

yeah, I got it the day after I submitted the application

Apr 19, 2018

for whom are you referring to when you said that Chicago isnt a priority for them?

Apr 19, 2018

Gotcha. I waa referring to JPM. I think they're more focused on NYC, San Francisco, and Houston but not sure.

Apr 20, 2018

Did you hear that from somewhere? Do you mean like in terms of recruiting summer analysts?

Apr 18, 2018

Anyone know when we should expect phone interviews after the hirevue video?

Apr 18, 2018

To the guys who applied these last few days: did u guys get the same questions for the HireVue?

1.Talk about a time when you solved a problem and had to incorporate a diverse set of perspectives in the solution

2.Give me a sales pitch on something you're interested in

3.Talk about a time when you solved a complex problem and explain how you arrived at a solution

Thank u for ur help

Apr 18, 2018

Yup I got those same questions for the NYC office, wasn't really expecting that 2nd question haha

Apr 18, 2018

Thanks!

Apr 19, 2018

For #2, do you guys think they were expecting finance related (i.e. stock)?
I just did some rando item lol

Apr 20, 2018

Hello! Only 3 questions in the hirevue?

Apr 19, 2018

anyone know when superdays are starting for non diversity?

Apr 19, 2018

have already begun / offers have been extended.

Apr 19, 2018

for which location? do you know if chicago superday has begun / offers have been extended?

Apr 20, 2018

NYC / SF - pm me with questions

May 20, 2018

Did you go to the superday in NY for winning women? Can you tell me about their interview process please. I am really nervous

Apr 21, 2018

Do you guys know if it was rolling basis for ALL of the locations?

Apr 21, 2018

Did anyone get an offer from the SF Tech Superday on April 20th?

Apr 21, 2018

Nope, no response yet.

Apr 21, 2018

PM'ed you!

Apr 26, 2018

Bump! Anyone? Heard a few offers went out but I'm not sure if they're withholding a few.

Apr 22, 2018

if we have not heard back after hirevue (completed 3 weeks ago) for NYC from target have we been dinged? or are superday/phone screen invites for NYC still going out?

Apr 23, 2018

Same basic question here: After phone interview with TMT SF, I did not get a superday invite and didn't get a follow up. Checked portal and the location changed to NYC. Status doesn't indicate that I've been dinged. Thoughts?

Apr 23, 2018

Hey OP,

I'll be there this summer. It goes like this (at least for me):

  1. Video interview
  2. Phone interview
  3. Superday

Good luck!

Apr 23, 2018

if we have not heard back from ny after completing hirevue 4 weeks ago is this a ding or are decisions still going out

Apr 23, 2018

did you get a phone interview?

Apr 24, 2018

no

Apr 23, 2018

when does your portal say last updated? If it was 2-3 weeks ago I'd think a ding, if it was in the last few days you could still be up for an interview. not 100% sure if the updates means anything, but might give you some idea

Apr 24, 2018

Mine got updated for like the 4th time yesterday for NY, no phone call or anything yet. applied about 3 weeks ago

Apr 25, 2018

i also applied about 3 weeks ago, mine didn't get updated since i sent the hirevue. Do the updates actually mean something?

Apr 25, 2018

no ideaaa

Apr 25, 2018

Has anyone heard back after the phone interview for NYC office?

Apr 26, 2018

did you apply for the winning women event?

Apr 26, 2018

I did but the interview was for 2019 SA

Apr 26, 2018

Just got a hirevue for asset management. Any idea if it'll be the same three questions posted above?
