Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
The company came to our campus on day 3 and agreed to take walk-ins.
Therefore resume shortlisting was the procedure.
They had a cut off of 7 CGPA.
Interview Tips
It would be good if you have some coding background with few projects. It could anything from class projects to your internships, extra-curricular or final year projects. Don't forget to mention what all programming language you know on your resume.
Round 2

Technical + HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: How will you find loop in the circular linked list?
  • Question 2: How will you perform pre-fix and post-fix operation for the given string expression?
  • Question 3: What is data analytics(cause I had mentioned it on the resume)? Just explain the basic and tell them how it can help us make decision/inference.
  • Question 4: In my final year project I have used random forest. So he asked me to explain random forest. And other projects related questions.
  • Question 5: What is your strength and weakness? why J P Morgan Chase? What do you expect from this company? I am from Mechanical Engineering, so she asked me why non-core?
  • Question 6: Few behavioral questions: What will you do if you have enough money and good idea to start your own company?
  • Question 7: How would you resolve team conflict between your idea and other idea, supported by majority?
Interview Experience
The first round consists of two panels. One of them was asking HR. And the other was asking technical questions. They were just looking whether you have the basic technical knowledge and if given an offer you will join or not.
Interview Tips
For technical knowledge, you can refer OOPs basic concepts, standard coding interview problems, geeksforgeeks, cracking the coding interview by Laxman Gayle etc. It would be better if you can first practice hr questions among your friends instead of going directly to interview. I found a youtube channel explains technical relatively easier and simpler way. you can follow that. Just try to show that you are interested in that company.
For HR questions, one can prepare from 64 HR questions.
For the basic OOPs concepts, one can read first 10 chapters from E.Balaguruswamy but any other OOPs book will also be fine.
Confidence is the key ace any interview!!
Round 3

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Tell me about yourself?
  • Question 2: Tell me about your family or life before college?
  • Question 3: What do you do in free time?
  • Question 4: What would you expect from this company?
Interview Experience
This round was mainly to check your personality. He was trying to know whether you will fit in the company or not. Most of the question was from my personal life. They will see whether you are serious about your life or not.
Interview Tips
Be ready to give them instances of your life where you did things differently. Try to show that you are passionate about the company. Try to show you have a clear vision in your life and working hard to achieve that.
Round 4

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Questions related to family and past life?
  • Question 2: Do you have any family member or friend in Bangalore?
Interview Experience
This round was just a formality. The HR from the second round interview introduced me to the third interviewer. He asked few question related to the family.
Interview Tips
One important thing I would like to is that NEVER ASSUME THAT WHATEVER YOU TOLD TO YOUR PREVIOUS INTERVIEWER WILL BE KNOWN TO THE NEXT INTERVIEW. So, if you think some specific points will help you do good in an interview...just let him know. I could be anything your project, conference, paper presentation or your past life as well.

I Applied for job through Personal Contacts for Junior analyst role at JP Morgan Chase
Interview Process
Technical Interview Problem Statement HR Interview
Round 1

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Explain the Eurozone debt crisis
  • Question 2: Difference between a bond and a debenture
  • Question 3: What is working capital
  • Question 4: Explain how the balance sheet works for banking sector
  • Question 5: If I buy a piece of equipment, walk me through the impact on the 3 financial statements.
  • Question 6: What is goodwill ?
  • Question 7: What is a deferred tax asset ?
Interview Experience
I had done a couple of finance projects, one internship in a VC firm and published a paper at IIM Calcutta. All this excited the interviewer and he started grilling me about various questions related to the course projects, generally about basic terms in finance and about my internship. These answers I had well prepared and hence were smooth to answer. But what was unexpected is where it would lead to once you answer the initial set of questions. I was asked to explain Eurozone debt crisis in simple language. I had also given CFA and FRM level 1 exams and there were a few questions related to risk management and portfolio investment.

PS: Please note that since I had done so many things related to the core work at JP Morgan I was asked a lot of questions in core finance. IT IS NOT AT ALL NECESSARY that you will be asked the same questions.
Interview Tips
Know the basics really well. It goes a long way if you know the concepts crystal clear. You can watch a few videos that explain the various crises and why they happened on Youtube. ( I have put up the links in the preparation material section). Be confident and if you don't know the answer, be straightforward to tell that you are not aware of that or maybe even have forgotten at the moment. Honesty helps! The interviewer can always guide you if you are stuck somewhere so ensure you attempt to answer or atleast get closer to the answer. Many a times they want to look into or analyze your thought process rather than getting the correct exact answer itself!
Round 2

Problem Statement

Interview Experience
It should be easy if your fundamentals are really clear. The case as such does not matter much since the positives and negatives of different valuation models are pretty much well known. I showed on how i arrived at the number using the Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) Valuation model and Comparative Comparison Valuation model. They also wanted to check on how well you write and are able to put out on paper as this was a Junior Analyst interview for a Equity Research Analyst role.
Interview Tips
Revise the various types of valuation models well and know the assumptions correctly. Models could get really complex sometimes but you should be clear with how you get at the final number and be able to explain it easily. Conceptually this is very interesting. This pretty much forms the basics of a lot of concepts in finance.
Round 3

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Tell me about yourself
  • Question 2: Why finance or investment banking ?
  • Question 3: How did you develop your interest towards this field ?
  • Question 4: What are your strengths and weaknesses ?
Interview Experience
This was a simple round. Usually you know the HR round questions already and hence you know how you could answer and even manipulate and steer the interview in your favour. Ensure you are clear with basic questions about how you got interested in this field and why you would like to pursue finance as a career option and not your core field (in my case it was civil engineering). A clear and simple story with facts shows that you have prepared well for the interview and have something concrete to say. So do prepare for these kind of questions and don't take them lightly.
Interview Tips
Practice out loud alone and with your friends and take feedback. Most of the times you would yourself realize that you have not answered in the best way possible. But at the same time do not push yourself so much that you get confused at the end moment. Keep a good balance. Try writing down points on a piece of paper and then frame them accordingly on the spot. It always better to know the important points instead of "mugging up an answer". A good interviewer can always tell the difference.
Preparation for this round actually helps you connect with your inner self and you start to ask yourself why you think you deserve this job and why this is a very good bet as a career option. Hence do go through this exercise atleast a few times! :)

Skills Tested

  • Financial Modeling
  • Valuations
  • Mergers & Acquisitions

Skill Tips
The best way to prepare would be actually building financial models, doing an internship in a financial services firm and getting a first hand experience of all the above. Theory part can be understood through CFA or FRM Level 1 books which pretty much cover the basics of finance.

General Tips
In my case I had prepared a lot from various resources. I have put it out in detail in the previous section section. <br />
CFA and FRM exams helped a lot for building a strong foundation but more importantly you actually need to be passionate about financial markets, how investment banks function, know the work details about your job profile and be excited about finance in general. <br />
Do not try and put things in resume that you think will "look" very good but you wouldn't be able to explain it thoroughly. The job is very demanding and requires long working hours, so be prepared for it. Know some basic numbers like GDP of top economies, population, interest rates, valuations, etc so that even if you guess things it should sound reasonable.
Motivation for applying
I was very keen to work at an Investment Bank. I had given CFA and FRM Level 1 and it had got me very excited about financial markets in general. I was trading part time and thoroughly enjoyed it. JP Morgan being one of the largest and most reputed Investment Banks I thought would give me exposure to various facets of equity research and thus improve my knowledge and understanding about markets. Also I was referred by my senior Kartheek Konanki who was an alum of IIT-Madras and the idea of having working with a lot of colleagues from various IITs excited me.
Funny Moments
I was asked a lot of questions about the movies I had seen like Wall Street, Boiler room and was asked to explain what happened to which character and why ? and that was not expected :P But they did make me comfortable and referred me other movies and books that would make learning all the more interesting. Net-net I think the interview had its fair share of ups and downs :D

JP Morgan Chase Junior analyst interview

Application
I was interviewed on-campus for Junior analyst role at JP Morgan Chase
Interview Process
Test Technical Interview HR Interview
Round 1

Test

Duration
80 Minutes
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Verbal
  • Section 2: Logic
  • Section 3: Quants
  • Section 4: Programming
Interview Experience
It was a pen & paper test. There were 4 sections, 20 questions and 20 minutes for each section. You cannot switch between the sections as they take the question paper after a particular section is timed out.

1. Verbal- Comprehension and basic grammatical sentence structuring. I solved the latter part first. It wasn't very difficult

.2. Logic- Find the next number in series, next figure stuff. This was the simplest section.

3. Quants- Not that easy, but manageable.

4. Programming- Very difficult. Questions were majorly of the type:



a) Get the output (Almost all the codes had complexity n^2.)

b) Which of the following options is the correct algorithm for  c) Output of flowchart (Honestly, I don’t even remember seeing the flowcharts.)

d) One or two theory questions.



I solved around 7-8, made logical guesses for the rest.There was no negative marking, so I made sure I attempted all the questions. Also, I marked the answers with pencil, so that if I get time at the end of any section, I can change an answer after cross checking. After the aptitude test, we were given a chance to interact with the managers of the company. It was not a very formal session. Make sure you make the most of this opportunity, as no other company gives you such a chance. Get all your doubts about the company cleared in these 20-30 minutes. I gained some interesting insights about the company in this session. This was not an elimination round.
Interview Tips
All of us struggled with this section. My suggestion would be to scan the paper for the theory questions first, then type a) questions and then type b). I doubt you’ll get time for type c). Another key point is to not get stuck on a particular question for a long time. If you are finding it difficult, there’s a possibility that others are also struggling with that question. So it would be wise to utilize that time to solve a few simple questions rather than one tough question. After all, weightage for each question is the same. ;)
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: What is the most complex algorithm you've ever written?
  • Question 2: Asked to explain my recent project in detail.
  • Question 3: Asked which algorithm I’d used. I explained the algorithm with examples.Time complexity of my most recent project.
  • Question 4: How did you test your project?

  • Question 6: What are your weaknesses?
  • Question 7: What are you passionate about?
  • Question 8: What are the two things you really want to do with your passion?
  • Question 9: One innovative change you would like to bring in the current ATM system. (We had a healthy discussion on this one.)
  • Question 10: What is your family background?
  • Question 11: One thing about your life you would want to change?
  • Question 12: Do you have any senior friends at JPMC? I said "Yeah, many." They asked me to name them, and wrote a few names on the back of my resume.

    General Tips
    Always dress properly. Even if you are told that 'semi-formals' are allowed,wear formals.Read about the company and be thorough with the job they're offering. Sit for the company only if it interests you. I sat only for those companies whose job profiles aligned with my job preference.Eat your breakfast/lunch. Fruits preferably. Interview day can be stressful sometimes and you need energy to look lively in your interview.Don’t forget your manners. Ask for permission to enter the room, greet them and thank them after your interview.If you are rejected for a company, don't lose hope. Instead, accept the decision and analyze where you went wrong. Work on it and make sure you never repeat that mistake again.Come talk to me if you aren't able to cope up with rejections.Even I faced rejections, but every rejection taught me something that eventually helped me on 22nd September, in one way or the other. :)

    Round 1

    Resume Shortlist

    Interview Experience
    This was the first round. Around 120 people were selected after this. The company had asked for filling in a google form to mention all the finance courses/internships/projects/certifications. I think they shortlisted people with some finance knowledge or good CG or good Positions of Responsibility.
    Interview Tips
    I would suggest everybody to spend the starting of the semester in preparing their resume. And ask for as much reviews from seniors as possible. A good resume is the first step towards your selection. If you are not able to show how talented you are, then its your fault. So, do spend a lot of time in editing and reviewing resume.
    Round 2

    Test

    Duration
    30 min Minutes
    Test Sections
    • Section 1: Written (Essay type) Test
    Interview Experience
    All the 120 people were asked to write 2 short essays in 30 min time. The topics were:
    1. Why Finance?
    2. What is the importance of "Digital India" in taking India forward?

    The 2nd question had 2 choices (I don't remember the 2nd choice). We had to write these answers in one A4 size page in MS Word, and then mail it to company.
    Interview Tips
    Do prepare for the "Why Finance?" question.
    For the 2nd question, be thorough with the recent economic and business news (national and global). You should know how to connect different events in the world to everything.
    Also, you need to have good writing and English skills to ace this round.
    Round 3

    Technical Interview

    Interview Experience
    This was a pure technical (finance) interview. They asked me questions from the finance competitions i had participated in. They also asked questions from Macro-economics, valuation multiples etc.
    1. How will interest rate cut affect inflation and economic growth?
    2. What is DCF? How do you calculate it?
    3. Why is D&A added back again in DCF?
    4. What are the different Valuation Multiples?
    5. Which multiple P/E or EV/EBITDA is more useful from Investor point of view?
    6. Tell me about yourself?
    7. Higher P/E is better or Lower? same question for EV/EBITDA?
    8. Do you follow markets?
    9. Do you follow any stock?
    10. Why didn't you give CFA?
    Interview Tips
    I think there is not much needed to prepare for this if you already know what is there is your resume and you have finance knowledge.
    For all the other people who don't know finance, this is not the company for you. Because they are going to grill you on anything and everything you say. So be prepared for question from your internships (if you had done any in finance).
    Round 4

    HR Interview

    Interview Experience
    This round was very peaceful. The interviewer asked me basic questions like
    1. Why this position?
    2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years.
    3. Are you thinking of doing MBA?
    and basic stuff like that.
    Interview Tips
    You need to be thorough with the profile you are applying for, why you are applying for it and all the other basic HR questions like why this company etc.

    Duration
    80 Minutes
    Interview Experience
    This had 4 sections of 20 mcqs each. We were allotted 20 mins for each section after which theinvigilator would take away the respective section’s question paper.The 1st section was Verbal Ability.The questions were based on passages,complete the sentences with appropriate option and other general English qns such as find out error in the sentence. No question on synonym antonym except maybe 1 passage based question of that sort .English section was doable. Logic was the next section, it had questions based on blood relations, coding and decoding letters, direction sense , a passage on cubes and other logical questions which were easy overall Quants was next section which was a bit lengthy and had questions on pipes, speed distance and other prominent quants topics.Next was the programming section which had language independent questions of predict for the output of code, identify correct code, output of flowcharts and algorithms, multiple loops. Adifficult section overall.About 80 students appeared and around 37 were shortlisted
    Round 2

    Technical Interview

    Interview Experience
    There was no GD round unlike previous years and we had the technical round directly. I was asked to give a briefing about the projects I had done so for this ,one should know the purpose of the project ,the technology used ,the role you played ,the challenges you faced etc. Seeing my resume he asked me what I had learnt in a networking workshop I had mentioned it along with 3-4 other technical workshops. I barely remembered anything about itand said to him that I had attended it in my second year and I didn’t remember much.I alsouttered a few concepts on networking I could recollect. So make sure you don’t appear dumb about anything throughout the interview and keep the conversation going or don’t write things which you don’t remember just for enhancing your resume as it could back-fire on you.Asked me what is relational database Which editor is used in linux, what is shell scripting,commands in linux? Why JPMC?
    Round 3

    HR Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: How was your previous interview?

    Interview Experience
    They don’t grill you much on technical. They just want to make sure that you will fit into their environment and work culture. Have the basic knowledge of every subject so that you can show that you have some idea and can drift the conversation in that direction if you are stuck

      HR interview: This was an interview that I really enjoyed. The HR manager began with the clichéd questions and then went on to ask some very interesting ones for about half an hour.
      General Tips
      If you're keen on knowing what it was like to intern at J.P. Morgan, you could visit this link on my personal blog and read the article I had written about my internship.<br />
      Do not use the internship only as an opportunity to get employed. Assess what the firm has to offer you and whether a full-time job there would help you in the long-term scheme of things.<br />
      In any case, I do believe that an internship at J.P. Morgan would be a great way for you to get an insight into the corporate world, especially if you're keen on working in the technology sector in the financial services industry.

      Q: Give me five steps to estimate the number of traffic lights in Bombay.
      Me: I will divide the city into equidistant lines, both vertical and horizontal; sort of a mesh. Then I would take vertical and horizontal rectangles i.e. the rectangles which fall on length and breadth of the city. Starting with the horizontal ones I would try to estimate the number of roads going from east to west in each rectangle(depending on the type of area: residential, commercial or a highway) Similarly I would try to estimate the number of roads going from north to south in each vertical rectangle. Now I have the average number of roads per unit length and per unit breadth. Now, I can calculate the average number of roads intersecting per rectangle. Now if I have the data, I can also use the traffic density data to further improve my estimate, i.e. whether the traffic light is required in that rectangle or not.(depending upon the traffic density)
      Q: Lets say that golden quadrilateral gets completed tomorrow. What would be its impact on the sales of Ashok Leyland?
      Me: Sir, they would increase, as more and more traffic will shift from railways to roadways as the average time taken by road will decrease.
      Q: If I say that the sales will decreases by road, the truk will make the same number of trips in less amount of time, thereby rendering overcapacity in the road transport market therefore the sales will decrease.
      Me: (I actually didn't let him complete, I interrupted him in between and said that I got the logic)
