JP Morgan Winning Women Interview Questions
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."
