JPM FT 2021 recruiting

The application is up on JPM's website for FT recruiting. Anyone know anything about the process? Seems odd they would post the app before the end of their internships, as I doubt they have any sense of headcount right now.

Also, do people understand how the networking policy at JPM works? I've seen threads on here saying it isn't as important, but is it still worth trying to chat with some people there?

Anyone know if HR between banks talk to each other? I'm looking to apply but scared that it might screw over my chances of getting a return offer from this summer

Does anyone know why they posted their app before their summer class has even come in yet? Also, does anyone know how their FT process is? Is it group specific and how many people do they generally take?

I checked every full-time graduate open position and they all required permanent working authorizations. Does that mean they do not sponsor international students from 2021?

Yeah. It's weird. I've been waiting for it to change or or for other positions to open up that sponsor but nothing so far. When I was applying for JPM internships last year, it didn't have this requirement. I'm not sure if it's always been this way or new this year because of all visa uncertainty. I'm gonna apply anyways and mentally prepare for a rejection

I included the tasks/responsibilities that were on the job description, and updated them as I actually had tangible experiences

Anyone know if they're opening apps up for other programs besides the current 4? Also, has anyone who applied gotten a pyremetrics/hirevue?

I'm Canadian and got flat out rejected :( I don't think they're sponsoring

Jul 24, 2020 - 4:10am

I got rejected about 15 hours after applying. I saw all these posts and knew I was going to get rejected but still applied. Feels bad to get rejected without even a pymetrics test

After submitting pymetrics you automatically get a HireVue. no time limit

Is pymetrics automatic if you submit the app? i.e. did anyone domestic submit an app more than a week ago and not hear back?

Anyone have any advice on what I could do to best prepare for the hirevue part of this application? Are the questions that will be asked more targeted to why JP Morgan/why IB?

The HireVue is pretty straight forward- 5 questions, all of which are some variation of 'tell me about a time...' or other super simple behaviorals.

Only other noteworthy thing is that group selection is part of the Hirevue, so just make sure you know what you want when you start it.

you give the top 3. so it asks your first choice, 2nd, and 3rd but it's multiple choice so you do have to pick.

Same as they always are: the blow up a balloon game, look at someones facial expression, number memorization, and like 3/4 other games that test your learning, attention, emotions, etc. Takes tops 20 minutes and then you automatically get the HireVue after you finish

Any idea on when we will hear back after completing Hirevue? I assume it won't be until late August when they determine how many offers they are going to be giving to the SA class.

Does anybody know if questions are shuffled or the same for everybody?

Would also like to hear if anyone has updates. Did hirevue 2-3 weeks back and haven't heard since.

Friend of mine - Ivy, 3.8, even has another BB offer didn't hear anything after the Hirevue. One coverage group just listed one analyst spot, and I know there are only a couple of other groups taking an analyst or two.

Just moving super slow IMO. I have pending with CIB S/O , CIB Research, as well as the general all groups app.

Have made it past all hirevue screenings from "your activity submission elav" into "in progress" again.

I'm 99% sure they just are moving slow / waiting especially with all the burnout seen from 2020 incoming analysts WFH, maybe they are waiting?

I'm just a tad concerned since they previously sent out a email about doing super days in early November but my portals all still say my application materials are being reviewed.

Nov 9, 2020 - 9:47pm

Understandable, it's not fun not knowing, but given its JPM and WSO user base is large, I would imagine there would have been talks about decisions at some point. I would wait it out until end of month before probing

How long until we hear back from a superday? I had mine last Tuesday and some sort of weird follow up interview on Thursday (CIB risk, not IB)

Wondering the same thing. Do you have any clue if Non IB roles reach out that same week/day? I had a Superday the week before thanksgiving and I haven't heard back.

Just an update for everyone I'm currently at BAML - ML side, been chatting with internal recruiting for our FT21 and basically everyone on the street is looking in house in order to lessen expenses in 2021.. so 21FT is going to be even more selective and limited.. they said BAML won't even start until January: Feb 21

Just curious but has anyone heard anything back about NYC FT whole sale payments? I did the hire Vue months ago but haven't heard anything back besides an email a while ago about them trying to do super days in early December....

Dec 17, 2020 - 12:05am

I don't know whether to assume they got bogged down with other stuff or if we are already denied.  That email in months ago said they wanted to do super days in end of November/early December but I don't even know if that happened
