Last week, I had an interview with JPMC. The interview was scheduled based on a post that the director shared and I DM him with my resume, no HR involved. Interview was very smooth and easy. After this till now, there is no follow up or call backs.. anyone faced similar situations. not sure what is their response. its very comfusing.
