JP Morgan Winning Women Interview Questions

WhitChantal:

The questions were about leadership, how you stay up on the markets, and what unique experience or expertise can you bring to the team.

Sample Answer to "How Do You Stay Up on the Markets?"

"Well my interest in the markets first stemmed from finding connections between economic data and political news to the markets - so firstly I read the WSJ and NYT economics and political sections each week as well as the markets sections to keep up to date with market trends and data. Also - my school happens to have bloomberg terminals which I learned to use through the finance training program that my school offers. With the terminal, I follow the more niche quantitative data like the World Interest Rate Probabilities that I can't find through standard news sources."

Should we apply to the winning women AND the regular summer analyst program, or just one?

I would apply to both, at least that's what I did, and both applications are currently under review

Aug 5, 2017

Apply to both.

Aug 6, 2017

what is the maximum number of applications we can submit

Aug 6, 2017

Did you end up getting video interviews for both?

Aug 6, 2017

yeah i got the video interview for both

Aug 7, 2017

hey have you done the video interview yet?

Aug 8, 2017

not yet, procrastinating on it til last minute because I absolutely dread these automated video interviews lol

Aug 8, 2017

Same lol I'm nervous

Aug 8, 2017

right?? idk what it is about these videos. I can interview in person easily. but I get so shaky and awkward doing these recorded things. if anyone has any advice on how to approach them that would be cool lol

Aug 8, 2017

you get 3 tries, AND you can watch your recording before moving on.

Aug 11, 2017

Did yours say that there are 4 questions and 2 attempts in the instructions to the Yello? In my email it said there were 3, now I'm kind of nervous. lol

Aug 18, 2017

I did the video interview yesterday. It was just 3 questions! Each had 2 attempts.

Aug 1, 2017

Does anyone know if we can apply to both locations or which one would be the most competitive?

Aug 3, 2017

I applied to both locations. I just received a video interview invite for the one in Chicago.

Aug 3, 2017

When did you guys apply?

Aug 3, 2017

I just got a video interview invitation. Given that I submitted my application on Tuesday, I am wondering if this is an automatic reply to everyone who applied.

    • 1
Aug 3, 2017

Yeah, I just got an invite too. I think it might just be a general first round resume screen?

Aug 3, 2017

I just got the video interview email today as well. wondering if anyone knows what types of questions this will include. it says there's only 3

You get a few tries! So timing really isn't too much of an issue. It feels a little awkward, but I would say after the number of tries it gives you, you have plenty of time to collect your thoughts.

    • 2
Aug 4, 2017

can you take as much time in between the tries? or is it back to back

Aug 13, 2017

It only automatically starts the first time.
For example, you get the question, then after like 30 secs (or so, I can't remember since I was freaking out during this little time) it automatically records.
HOWEVER, after the first try, YOU get to press record so obviously you will have plenty time that is in your control. Plus, they also let you watch the recording, so it's honestly nothing to stress about.

You guys can feel free to PM if you have any questions or want more info!

Do you know if there is an additional round of interviewing AFTER the video interview or is this it?

    • 1
Aug 7, 2017

I asked someone in HR today- this person didn't give a definite answer. He said that if successful, you may meet someone for an in person interview. This is kind of confusing because it doesn't make sense to have an in person interview, given that the winning women programme includes the in person interview. He may have meant phone interview.

Or he may have meant that this is the only round of interviews we will get. For the internship programmes (not winning women), it's resume scan--> pre recorded interview --> superday (maybe a phone call in between). I assume winning women will be similar so this might be the only interview. I will let you know if I get any updates from HR.

Aug 11, 2017

what did they ask you about? And we can take as much time as we need in between tries? Did you apply for Asset/wealth management?

Aug 12, 2017

Applied for asset/wealth management. asked the same questions as those described by WhitChantal. Yes, I believe you can take as much time after the first attempt. You can wait to click a button that allows you to move forward.

Aug 16, 2017

Are the responses timed? Is there a suggested length of time for each of the responses?

Aug 5, 2017

Aug 15, 2017

Did you receive the invitation for the video interview as soon as you submitted your application?

Aug 5, 2017

Is anyone else applying to NYC AM?

    • 1
Aug 5, 2017

I applied to the NYC AM and Chicago. I dislike that I have to do the video interview twice since I applied to both.

Aug 5, 2017

were the questions you posted for JPM IB or only AM video interview

Aug 6, 2017

AM video interview

Aug 7, 2017

Were the IB questions the same as the AM?

    • 1
Aug 5, 2017

does JPM review under a rolling basis?

Aug 5, 2017

this thread was a life saver

Aug 6, 2017

Did anyone run into some technical issues while filling out the application? Weirdly enough one of the mandatory fields (your placement preferences) doesn't have any options to choose from, but it's also mandatory to fill in so I can't move on to the next part of the application. Did any run into similar problems? How did you deal with it

Aug 6, 2017

does anyone know the questions for the IB winning women video interview? I dont think they would be the same as AM

    • 2
Aug 6, 2017

@ziyuyan yeah, i ran into that same issue, so i just went ahead and turned it in. i wanted to check the other options but since it wouldnt let me i just let it go

Aug 6, 2017

How were you able to continue onto the next page? I clicked continue and it wouldn't let me move on without filling out that field.

Aug 6, 2017

I had already answered the question before so my previous answers saved.

Aug 7, 2017

Do you guys think CIB's Winning Women will give video interview? I thought they just review our resume and essay..

Aug 7, 2017

yes video interviews for winning women CIB were handed out

Aug 7, 2017

Then what kind of questions did you get for CIB?

    • 1
Aug 7, 2017

Submitted my video answers yesterday for AM NYC, anyone know if it'll be on a rolling basis? The event is in one month so it should be pretty quick.

Aug 7, 2017

What kind of questions did they ask?

Aug 7, 2017

Pretty much the same as mentioned above, 3 questions with 90 seconds to answer. I was nervous going in but it really wasn't bad. It lets you watch each submission so you can decide if you want to redo it.

Aug 7, 2017

Same as the questions WhitChantal posted for AM? even for CIB?

Aug 7, 2017

I don't know if for CIB because mine were for AM

    • 1
Aug 7, 2017

i applied to the winning women and i got an email two weeks later to do a video interview, also applied for summer analyst and the next day got the same video interview

Aug 8, 2017

does anyone encounter the issue for AM where you filled out page 1 and then click "continue," but goes to a page that says "You've entered in all necessary information. Are you sure you want to submit your application?" I don't know if I should proceed with this, since I haven't uploaded my resume and cover letter yet.

Aug 8, 2017

hey guys, i just submitted my apps for Winning women; is it too late at this stage? i legit didn't know there was the video portion. will they even consider my application on time for the 15th deadline? thanks :(

    • 1
Aug 9, 2017

Just submitted mine too. I think you'll be fine. If you submitted everything they told you to submit in time I don't see how they could not consider your app. Kind of hoping at this stage maybe we don't have to do video :-) lol wishful thinking maybe

Aug 9, 2017

i asked an upperclassmen friend (so take this with a grain of salt) but apparently if they want you they'll tell you in about 3 days and request you do a video thingy...so at least well still have like a day to do the video interviews i guess.

Aug 9, 2017

Got an invite for video interview today. Going to do it tomorrow!

Aug 10, 2017

Three days seems a little short to be the case for everyone. There was a two week time before my app submission and my vid interview. After speaking to a few hr people, they were very vague as to whether they even screen your app at all before giving you Hirevue. JPM might just give it to everyone? Since on the app, it clearly starts, that after a phone/vid screen, selection occurs. So it kind of implies everyone gets the hirevue.
Also, I didn't even submit a cover letter so maybe they don't even look that thoroughly at apps.

    • 1
Aug 10, 2017

my interviews for winning women and the regular summer internship programme were given around 3-4 days after submission.

Aug 11, 2017

.

Aug 10, 2017

It will come in an email and then you have to do the interview on yello. Im also thinking maybe there are certain dates where they send out invites.

Does anybody know if the video questions for winning women CIB will be similar to the video questions for CIB summer analyst position?

Aug 9, 2017

Yeah, anyone have any insight on CIB? Thanks!

Aug 10, 2017

Format will be the same. I did AM, but you can always report back to help others and ppl in the future :)

@Luckyspade Did you complete your video interview yet? Can you confirm the answer to your question?

Aug 10, 2017

if the portal says "application completed" does that mean they haven't seen my app yet?

Aug 11, 2017

.

Aug 10, 2017

Once you get a video invite it will say in review

Aug 10, 2017

thanks! i turned in my app on the 5th and haven't gotten anything back yet so im a lil worried.

i'm from non-target tho

Aug 10, 2017

Well best of luck! I'm in the same boat too!

Aug 12, 2017

Also from a non target/semi target- current status of my school is unknown- I'm sure you'll get it soon!

Aug 10, 2017

When I go to do the interview, it says that it is 4 questions and we only have 2 attempts to answer each question. Did it say that for anyone else's? In my email it said it was only 3 questions.

Aug 14, 2017

me too!!

Aug 14, 2017

I went ahead and took it and there were only 3 questions / 3 attempts on the actual interview. The instructions are just wrong I think!

Aug 14, 2017

yeah haha i was relieved! esp. when we ended up having three tries. good luck!

Aug 11, 2017

Did anyone else apply to both the Winning Women program and the CIB analyst internship program but only get a video invite for the Winning Women program?

Aug 11, 2017

Same thing happened to me.

Aug 11, 2017

I just realized that the invite for the CIB internship went to my spam folder...I would check yours! Unfortunately it was due yesterday but the portal to submit the video interview is still open so I'm going to do it ASAP today

Aug 11, 2017

Mine isn't in there, and the only invitation I have on the website is the Winning Women one. A little weird - maybe I got dinged on the regular SA? I guess going through Winning Women would probably give me a better shot anyways. Oh well haha. Thanks for the reply!

Aug 11, 2017

If you dont mind me asking, what kind of question did you get for CIB?

Aug 12, 2017

.

Aug 11, 2017

you also get plenty of time to redo/practice during the session. you're not on a timer when you're watching your first attempt so you can literally practice what you will say as many times as you want and take as much time to move on to the next attempt. it's really not high pressure at all

Aug 11, 2017

got two video invites

Aug 11, 2017

just got my video invite for AWM. anyone else do the interview and can confirm that the 3 interview questions above are what were asked?

Aug 11, 2017

Just got my video invite for AM as well! applied yesterday and then received email for video interview today, how long do we have to do the video interview (i.e. should complete in day or so?)

Aug 11, 2017

we have 3 days

Aug 11, 2017

do you guys know when JPM will hand out offers?

Aug 14, 2017

I was wondering the same thing. It should be soon right? One of the events is on the 15th!

Aug 13, 2017

I applied today. Is that too late? The website says the deadline is Tuesday. Why would they make it Tuesday if it's much earlier?

Aug 13, 2017

Does anyone have any insight into the questions for winning women CIB video interview? Are they similar to the regular internship app video interview?

Aug 13, 2017

i submitted my video today. fingers crossed for good news!

Aug 14, 2017

good luck! I'm going to submit mine in a few hours (I'm in a different time zone) do u think if its before the end of the 14th its ok?

Aug 14, 2017

Good Luck! I havent received the interview email yet..Do you mind giving a few insights into the questions for that video interview? I applied for the CIB one; super nervous right now..

Aug 14, 2017

Did you receive the email for the video interview?

Aug 14, 2017

hey! i only applied for the two AM ones, I'm not a junior so i can't do the CIB. hope it went well tho!

Aug 14, 2017

does it matter if you don't put in your personal email address? I just realized that I accidentally put in my school email twice.

Aug 14, 2017

anyone apply to the commercial banking program lmfao

Aug 14, 2017

Could anyone mention the questions they were asked for the investment banking division?

Aug 14, 2017

I'm still sending in my resume/application, haha. The essay is taking me longer than expected.

What did you guys talk about?

Aug 14, 2017

which program did you apply for?

Aug 14, 2017

"2018 Corporate & Investment Bank Winning Women Undergraduate Fall Experience & Interviews" is the one I'm applying to!

Aug 14, 2017

ah i see, IB. good luck! i applied for AWM so not sure what the IB essay is about

Aug 16, 2017

Did anyone else who applied for CIB get a video interview for the regular CIB app but not for winning women?

Aug 16, 2017

I applied for the CIB-Winning Women but not the regular one; I havent received the video interview email yet. I'm doubting if CIB-Winning Women has video interview...

Aug 16, 2017

It does. If you applied at two different times maybe your video invites are in two different "waves"

Aug 16, 2017

Oh! Thank you for the information! Did you get it? how was it? Would you mind giving some insights about those questions?

Aug 16, 2017

Were the questions for the CIB the same as AWM?

Aug 16, 2017

Never mind, just got the video invite for Winning Women. Yayyyy I get to record myself again

Aug 16, 2017

Would you mind sharing insights about the question after you finished it? I was just wondering the type of those questions (leadership?/teamwork? etc) Thanks!!

Aug 16, 2017

I applied for Winning Women CIB about 6 hours before the deadline, and I got the video interview about 30 minutes ago. Does anyone have a clue as to how selective their Winning Women program is? as in how many people apply versus get it

Aug 16, 2017

Do you guys think its easier to get the winning women for NON IB related services? FOr the CIB APP i put down global treasury services and risk.

Aug 16, 2017

Do AWM and CIB have same questions for recorded video interview?
Thanks in advance!

Aug 16, 2017

when do you think decisions will come out? given that the event is early september

    • 3
Aug 16, 2017

on the website it said some are due sept 13-anyone know why some were due august 15 and some later?

Aug 16, 2017

There's two winning women's events, one in September and one in October. I think certain divisions are only on certain dates, those that go in October have a later due date.

Aug 16, 2017

Could those who did the CIB winning women's video interview please confirm if the questions were technical or behavioral? How similar were they to the regular CIB app questions?

Oct 9, 2017

Aug 24, 2017

Aug 17, 2017

I spoke to a girl who did Winning Women a few years ago- she said her interview process was way different than ours right now, and at the event there were about 50 girls for the superday. Good luck to us all!!

Aug 17, 2017

how do they choose for superday?

Aug 18, 2017

I believe it might only be this video interview! I'm getting the impression that since video interviews are due Aug 23rd latest, they might not have time for phone interviews so they select based on resume, essay, and the Hirevue.

Aug 18, 2017

this seems to be correct- asked someone in hr recently

Aug 18, 2017

oh i was referencing the super day that occurs like during the winning women conference for the SA position

Aug 17, 2017

Does anyone know when we will find out who is accepted? will it be by phone or email?

Aug 17, 2017

that's the million dollar question
