First of all I would to thank all the contributors to this forum; you provide wonderful & useful information. By sharing your experiences, you give a hand to other applicants.
Given the above, I am going to share my experience:
*I made my online application in mid November 09; after JPM had visited our Uni.
*2 days later, I was invited to do the numerical test.
*A few days later, I got an email informing that I passed the numerical test and shall be contacted for further interviews.
In the 2nd week of December, I received an email inviting me to an AC. After clearing the confusion (they had invited me to London but had applied to Glasgow and there was a problem with booking appointment slots); I finally had my AC on 13/01/10.
This is how the AC went:
*Presentation; the case study consisted of about 20 emails describing a Tech problem encountered by various depts. I had to indentify the task, provide a solution and suggest other possible solutions (with their pros & cons). This had to be done in 45 minutes. Thereafter there was a 10 minutes presentation to a Business Manager, followed by a 10 minutes Q&A with the manager. For this task, they want to see: analytical, organisation & communication skills.
*Group work/discussion. We were given 3 possible solutions to the case study seen before. Candidates had 15 minutes to study the case study individually. Afterwards we had 35 minutes to discuss & agree on one recommendation and produce a Gantt chart for our solution. Here, they want to see: leadership abilities, negotiating skills…
*2 * 30 minutes competency-based interviews; questions about: leadership, overcoming challenges, past mistakes & lessons learnt, JPM’s competitors, motivation for JPM, motivation for Tech division…
I enjoyed the whole experience; JPM people are very professional and equally friendly. HR called me the following day to make me an offer.
I hope other applicants will find this info useful
