JPM SA 2021 Accelerated

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.

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

Jun 7, 2020 - 4:20pm

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

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?

Jun 9, 2020 - 12:36am

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

Please reach out to HR for all of our sake lmao. But I heard other accelerated apps are out just not banking

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

Jun 11, 2020 - 8:40pm

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 - 6:16am

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??


  • Prospect in IB - Gen

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?

Jun 13, 2020 - 7:39pm

Are you sure? I only see the application for Sydney open


  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Jun 13, 2020 - 8:49pm

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?

Jun 14, 2020 - 6:16pm

Can anyone confirm if that applications come out tomorrow?

Jun 15, 2020 - 11:16am

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.

they're gonna email us and tell us when to apply, just chill

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

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

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Jun 16, 2020 - 2:42pm

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.

  • Developer in IB - Gen
Jun 16, 2020 - 6:38pm

I'm confused do we apply regular or not? For sophomore edge. Should I wait a few more days for them to send the app or say something.

Jun 17, 2020 - 12:36pm

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 - 5:45pm

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.

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 - 5:50pm

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


  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Jun 17, 2020 - 5:54pm

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

Jun 18, 2020 - 11:01am

I did the women's conference in May and have heard nothing from recruiters. Has anyone from the women's conference specifically heard anything?

  • Developer in IB - Gen
Jun 18, 2020 - 3:38pm

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 - 3:50pm

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 - 3:51pm

Does anyone have any idea if launching leaders is over?

  • Prospect in S&T - Other
Jun 18, 2020 - 4:19pm

I was in Sophomore Edge but just chose Launching Leaders. does anyone know when we'll get pymetrics or hirevues?

  • Intern in Other
Jun 18, 2020 - 4:23pm

How did you apply to Launching Leaders, on the website it shows that the application is closed...

  • Developer in IB - Gen
Jun 18, 2020 - 4:37pm

I'm so confused what is Launchin Leaders. Is this gonna be another virtual informational sort of program? Is launchin leaders essentially same as winning women? Idk if to apply for leaders or women kinda confusing.

Jun 18, 2020 - 4:44pm

its on their website. Its kinda like an earlier application process I believe

Jun 18, 2020 - 4:47pm

i participated in sophomore edge b/c im LGBTQ. i'm not a woman or racial minority so WW and LL don't apply to me. i'm confused as to what i should do... any advice?

Jun 19, 2020 - 10:11am

If we accidentally used the same cover letter for all 3 positions and made an error what do we do? I know its my fault completely but should I withdraw or hope for the best and leave it

Jun 19, 2020 - 10:24am

oops forgot to click reply button but what is Hr's email

Did anyone from sophomore edge that applied to either launching leaders or women's get a hitevue yet?

Jun 19, 2020 - 7:06pm

if i only want to do banking, should i indicated investment banking for all three programs for choice. I didn't, but I really only want to do investment banking. so was curious if i should reach out to HR to emphasize this

Jun 21, 2020 - 9:55am

How soon do we think these superdays will be pending we get it?


  • Prospect in S&T - Other
Jun 21, 2020 - 7:41pm

Hopefully they can get superdays and offers out by end of July. Do we still have to do pymetrics and hirevues, or are they just not gonna matter as much for us?

  • Prospect in IB - Gen
Jun 21, 2020 - 8:23pm

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

I got pymetric but no hireVue yet for sales and for trading but not for structuring and I applied to all 3 and put sales then structure then trading in my post program survey

  • Intern in IB - Gen

Did you already have py-metrics done? Is that maybe why I got invited to pynetrics for everything I applied for but no hire vue

Jun 24, 2020 - 2:00pm

At one of my sophomore edge events, they mentioned we would have only 1 hirevue for all the programs we apply to and from there they'd decide which super day to give you. Is this true?

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Jun 24, 2020 - 2:04pm

I don't think so because I got 3 different hireviews. But probably superday for only 1

  • Intern in IB - Gen
Jun 24, 2020 - 2:15pm

How many days do we have to complete the hirevues and how many attempts are there

  • Intern in IB-M&A
Jun 24, 2020 - 3:05pm

How many steps are in this process for IB or S&T? Pymetrics to Hirevue, then is there a first round then superday or hirevue straight to super?

Jun 24, 2020 - 3:38pm

I got the Hirevue pretty much right after I submitted Pymetrics. You still have to click the link in the email even if you've done the tests already
