I have an upcoming telephone interview on Wednesday (11/24) regarding a position as a Private Equity Fund Accountant at J.P. Morgan. It states it is an entry level position. I graduated last May and have since worked for a small accounting firm for a few months. We audited specific medical financial statements. My father is friends with the CFO of an entire division so I felt that definitely aided in obtaining the phone interview.
I have been thoroughly researching what to expect, with some conflicting ideas (due to the fact that the phone interviews were for a wide variety of unique positions.) The email I received stated that they will call me at a specific time and the interview will last between 15-20 minutes. Can anyone give me some insight on what to expect? Will there be technical accounting questions asked? Will there be financial and equity questions asked? I would imagine a lot will be personality and resume based.
I have been on interviews at Deloitte and smaller firms and landed the positions I applied for. The one thing that I am concerned with is my limited experience in the private equity sector and how I can relate my experience to them and how I would be an asset.
I greatly appreciate any advice.
