College students aspiring to be JPMorgan Chase & Co. bankers are going to have to up their game.

Starting this year, JPMorgan’s corporate and investment bank will employ online behavioral science-based games as it ends in-person campus visits. The games will be in addition to recorded video interviews the bank has deployed in recent years, according to a letter to schools.

JPMorgan is partnering with Pymetrics, an artificial intelligence hiring startup, on the games.

The changes will pave the way for the bank to connect with more students throughout the year and provide “greater consistency and equitability for all who apply,” according to the letter.

The games “have shown to be very accurate in measuring a wide range of relevant social, cognitive and behavioral features — things like attention, memory and altruism,” Matt Mitro, JPMorgan’s head of campus recruiting, said in an online post this month.

Business Insider reported the changes earlier Wednesday.
