JPM SA 2021 Accelerated

Intern in IB-M&A

Hey Guys,

I was apart of the Sophomore Edge program and just completed the survey/application they sent out for accelerated interviews. I was wondering if anyone has any insight on how this process was ran in previous years and what the rate of offers will be for the program participants? I couldn't find a thread on JPM recruiting, so I decided to make this one.

I did the women's conference and they said we will have an accelerated process as well, but haven't heard anything - anyone else??

How many other programs does JPM host outside of Edge and Women's conference?

I think they might do an LGBTQ one as well but not positive

Was told superdays at the end of June if chosen

Do you think everyone will get a superday unless they mess up really bad on the hirevue?

For us (women's), they made it sound like everyone would get a superday

I think somewhere around 100, maybe a little less

Do you have an idea of maybe how many of those 100 will get an offer from JPM IB? I also took into account that maybw 10 or more have already signed an offer elsewhere

Did anyone here who got into their accelerated IB Superday not have IB as one of their recommended jobs in the Pymetrics talent finder?

I took these games without really trying and I'm worried I wont be passed through initial screen even.

idt anyone got their superdays yet. they're gonna send us the hirevue sometime this week and that leads to the superday. the pymetrics won't impact anything it is just there to help you figure out the path you wanna go if you're unsure. idt you even needed to do the pymetrics

  • Prospect in 
Jun 7, 2020

out of curiosity, what were your recommended jobs? I was under impression they essentially recommend all their programs in the results of pymetrics

  • Prospect in IB-M&A

That's what I was thinking too. I basically got sales & trading, corporate banking/special situations, and corporate analyst development. I feel like I got every FO role that wasn't investment banking - makes me wonder if they'd still look at me for IB if this is how they filter?

What did you get?

That's what I was told too.

Also, does anyone know if they accelerate these?

The only accelerated interviews they are doing are the diversity ones. idt they accelerate you if you have a competing offer because they start their normal process in the fall

Are applications still not open yet or is it just my end? Thought they were coming out yesterday.

Nope, you have to get past the hirevue first

What kind of questions does JPM ask in the Hirevue?

I dont htink there is a hirevue????

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Jun 11, 2020

There is. It goes from hirevue to superday

Jun 11, 2020

Does anyone from Sophomore Edge know when the Superdays will be after we do the Hirevue?

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Jun 11, 2020

Not sure, but at the mentor circle they mentioned that they will try to finish sophomore edge recruiting before regular recruiting begins

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Jun 11, 2020

They mentioned superdays will be late june/early July, but who knows now since they had the technical difficulty that delayed the release of the apps and hirevues

Jun 12, 2020

do we still need someone to push our resume even when we're in sophedge? or we're good because our resumes have been flagged??

definitely don't need someone pushing resume. talking to people would probably just be helpful to ref in interview

how do we know what track from the sophomore edge survey we were selected for? and from there is it hirevue-superday or is there a sepaate first round interview as well?

Are we supposed to use the link from LinkedIn? I thought they were going to send us the link with the app for early consideration?

Jun 13, 2020

It redirects to the JP website, so I guess?

But you can only apply through indeed or with your LinkedIn profile.
Has anyone submitted their app as yet?

If you were apart of sophomore edge then don't apply. They will be sending us a separate app. It seems like they will be sending it out on Monday since they have that app up now

Participated in sophomore edge. How can I take the pymetrics test, or do I just wait for JPM to send me the actual accelerated application and then it'll require me to take Pymetrics?

  • Prospect in IB-M&A

Sophomore edge won't be required to take the pymetrics

Is our Hirevue gonna be the same as regular applications, or is it gonna be less questions since were accelerated

  • Prospect in IB-M&A

Hirevue questions will most likely be the same as regular applicants

Jun 14, 2020

Can anyone confirm if that applications come out tomorrow?

  • Prospect in IB - Gen
Jun 14, 2020

for edge participants or for regular?

Jun 14, 2020

for sophomore edge

Jun 15, 2020

I'm not sure where you all heard that Edge was being given a separate app. From what I understood, we were being flagged and were supposed to apply in the regular process, and if we were interested in other tracks, apply to them as well.

  • Prospect in IB-M&A

It does seem like they wouldn't review apps until the job is on their actual website...

HR confirmed that we are getting a separate app and they mentioned multiple times in the sessions.

Jun 16, 2020

Should we apply to the one that just opened on the website?

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Jun 16, 2020

I went ahead and applied because I don't remember them explicitly saying there was a separate app for sophomore edge. They mentioned that they would send an email once the app opened and if its on a rolling basis then there's no harm in applying.

One of my friends that was in the JPM Latinx Conference got an email from HR saying that the apps are on the website and they should apply.
During their program too they were told that they would be guaranteed a first round so I assume it is same for the S edge program.

  • Developer in IB - Gen
Jun 17, 2020

Does this email mean we should apply or not yet. I'm still confused

As a Sophomore Edge participant you have been identified as a priority candidate and your info has been shared w Recruiters.

Banking & Markets Track - in the next few days you will receive emails with a very tight turnaround for program applications.

  • Prospect in IB-M&A

It means dont apply and just be patient, they haven't forgot about us

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Jun 17, 2020

That means they will send the application.
Also, if we are part go Launching Leaders or WW, does that mean we get an accelerated superday?

Jun 17, 2020

i think for WW it's hirevue -> phone screen -> superday. sounds like it might take a while?

  • Prospect in IB-M&A

Sophomore Edge, Launching Leaders, WW, and any other diversity programs will receive the accelerated superday.
Th process is going to be Hirevue -> Superday, no phone screen in between

Hey I was in sophomore edge and they're having us either apply through the winning women link or the launching leaders link. I am basically eligible for both, which should I do/would be better? Do you think the hurevues will be same?

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Jun 18, 2020

What if I qualify for neither? WW is for females, and Launching Leaders is for Black, Hispanic and Native American, but I am none of those. Are those that are in Sophmore Edge supposed to choose one or the other?

Jun 18, 2020

Yeah idk very confusing that they just kinda said to pick one or the other by jume 25 and apply.

  • Prospect in IB - Gen
Jun 21, 2020

Yea they're gonna send us a pymetrics and hirevue. If you have already completed a pymetrics then you'll be able to reuse the results. The hirevue should be sent out shortly after the pymetrics. We aren't guaranteed a superday, but you'll get one as long as you don't mess up the hirevue badly
