University students who are hoping to land a full-time analyst role at J.P. Morgan after graduating are muttering to one another about the lack of response from the bank following their first interview.
Several dozen U.S. applicants note on a recent Wall Street Oasis forum that they completed the initial automated video interview well more than a month ago and, as of late last week, still haven’t heard anything from J.P. Morgan other than updates in the portal that say they are still “under consideration.” Some say they received an email indicating that the bank will be in touch before March 9 regarding next steps, though many of the interviews took place in early February or before.
Typically speaking, candidates will hear back about a standard HireVue interview within a tighter timeframe, and the middle of March is rather late to notify graduating students about whether they will move forward in the process. While it’s unclear when J.P. Morgan closed applications for the role, most investment banks in the U.S. have shortened their list and sent out invites for calls and eventual superday interviews by now. The bank declined to comment on where they are in the process for investment banking analysts or if they are behind schedule. Meanwhile, nervous students are left home gnawing on their fingernails and complaining on message boards.
