    I've always been told to submit CVs as PDF as apparently it doesn't screw with the formatting, may want to try that in the future
    Pretty sure that MS didn't allow PDF uploads - only .doc.

    Did anyone hear back from CS yet ? I heard that they just randomly ring you up for a phone interview. MS on the other hand called in advance and made an appointment for it.
    I am a bit worried as they may not be able to reach me under the phone number I gave them, as I am back in my home country and my phone isn't working properly. Should I give them a call or write them an email telling them about it and provide them with a new number that would work ?

    My thoughts exactly, I always prefer PDF but MS didn't list it as one of their accepted formats unfortunately.
    Anyway I'm sure mine isn't the first CV to be messed up by their system I'm sure they're aware of the problem.

    Can't you just update your personal details when you log in to your account? I'm pretty sure they allow you to change addresses and phone numbers. Update it with a number that works.

    When did you complete the CS Tests? Do they let you know if you passed?

    Does anyone know how JPM use their numerical test to screen out candidates i.e. do they benchmark or is there a minimum level?

    Thanks

    Okay, thanks, I might try that.

    I completed the CS test like 3 weeks ago, but I haven't heard anything since.

    yeah, It was strange because it was easy at first then got really hard then got easy again! But I heard that the tests are trying to find your "level" by giving you questions of different levels. It was a bit strange that they didn't ask for a numerical.

    Although, according to some on this website I know nothing about invesment banking, I recently had an in depth conversation with the head of EMEA recruitment at JPM. He told me that there is a pass mark.

    Really? I found the JPM test relatively easy (compared to Credit Suisse at least). Maybe because now I've had more practice...
