Interview Questions

Ques. Introduce yourself to the readers

Hi! My name is Jeeya Praksh and I am a final year student. My branch is Electronics and Communication Engineering. I think it was in 2nd year when I realized that nothing about this branch interests me. Before I made any conscious choice about what career I wanted to follow, I wanted to try everything and well this has primarily been like a huge highlight of my college life that I tried a lot of things. In 2nd year I got really into tech; I started participating in a lot of hackathons. I have a friend who does it really well, so he helped me out a lot and we participated in hackathons.I tried my hands at tech and did the coding and I wouldn’t say that I was the best at it but I think I was fairly good.
But somewhere I realized that it is not what I want to do later in life and that is when I started looking into other things. Apart from this, I am also a published author. I came out with my book-“Mirror” last to last year(it was in my 2nd year). I have been writing since 2014. There is one thing that I have been asked in almost every interview: “Why don’t you pursue your career in poetry”. One of my interviewers, a very senior member at ZS asked me: “Jeeya, are you sure that we’ll be not killing your passion by hiring you? Are we snatching a good writer away from the poetry community?” I told him that this is something I am extremely passionate about and this will always go parallel. I am never going to stop writing. Poetry is one thing that makes me so happy, but my career has to be something different. I never wanted to make a career in this because I am a firm believer of the fact that “Deadlines kill your Passion”. I cannot be made to write under a deadline. Hence my career choice is finance.
I got into finance in my 3rd year. I would see my dad talking all the time about finances and stuff. I would have this FOMO that what is the cool thing that my dad and brother are discussing, and that is when I wanted to read more about finance. Then I realized that this is something that I can still look into. That is why I took finance so seriously and JPMC banking. And consultancy because I like to talk, I like to think, I feel that I am a very creative person, I can think of solutions for out-of-the-box problems.

Ques. What was the difficulty level of the interview? (1- very easy, 10-very difficult)

It was medium.

Ques. Tell us about the written/online test. (Aptitude, Coding, Test Platform, etc)

There were 2 phases.
Phase 1 had 3 rounds: One online aptitude test. If you qualify that then there is a Case Study Round(a very detailed case study on the basis of which you need to solve MCQs), then a video interview round(AI detected).
Phase 2: another written test(Case Study Round) but this time it’s a detailed Case Study in which you have to solve and answer.
For financial and non-technical roles they have a good amount of aptitude questions! This goes without saying that every non-tech company you are sitting for will have a lot of Aptitude questions, so anybody who is preparing for this needs to have basic math, English, logical reasoning, and data representation on point.
