On a typical day working remotely on this internship: - I joined the stand-up at 9am to hear about my team's work and update them on mine. - I met with my supervisor(s) and spoke to them more in depth about any issues I was facing - I did a lot of practical software development! - I attended events (workshops, interviews, mentoring meetings) run for interns throughout

Day one focused on getting to know J.P. Morgan through deep dives into J.P Morgan's teams and their work, panel sessions exploring the daily work of analysts and associates and interactive Q&A. Days two to four shine a spotlight on the different areas in the business you could join helping you choose the path that is best for you. Also took part in an interactive group challenges designed to replicate the work done as a J.P. Morgan banker.
A week-long programme, giving insight into the various divisions and corporate culture through team games, networking opportunities, presentations and discussions. The discussions gave a first-hand understanding of particular roles, which was particularly helpful.
We had several meetings with different employees and students that did the same program we were in at that moment so that they could talk about theirs experiences at JP Morgan. We also had a few tasks to complete in order to feel how it really was to work as a software engineer there. The online version of the program was, nevertheless, a bit awful.
Talks from senior leaders within the firm. Interactive workshop session lead by heads of divisions. Graduate networking. CyberSecurity online challenges. Coding tasks to do in your own time.

This virtual programme provided an insight into different divisions within J.P. Morgan including Asset Management, Markets, Investment Banking as well as many others. From this experience, you learnt what each role within each division entailed. There was interactive Q&A sessions and panels with employees from Analysts to Managing Directors. Also there was many case study exercises with peers which allowed us to practice our analytical thinking. Great opportunity to network and learn from experienced individuals in the banking sector as well as our peers.
I was able to gain a deeper and clearer insight into the functions of the myriad divisions within an investment bank.
