The insight was 2 days long and if had a well defined schedule which consisted of multiple workshops in different CS areas (cybersecurity, frameworks, TDD etc.) as well as an application-related presentation. In between the workshops, we had to complete 3 main tasks/projects on a platform provided by the company.
Over the course of the two days I was introduced to the teams within the investment banking division at J.P., could experience the firm's culture and had various highly interesting networking opportunities with J.P. representatives and my fellow interns.
On day one we had presentations from employees at J.P. Morgan who talked about the culture of the firm as well as the Investment Banking division. We learned in more detail what exactly their role entailed. We then had the opportunity to network with analysts and associates at the bank. On day two we had a group discussion based on material that we were given the day before and networked with senior bankers.
Some panels with insights into the company culture, tips on how to build a personal brand, etc. Then we got an introduction on the several divisions within markets and personal networking sessions with several analysts, associates, MD's and ED's. These networking sessions were in groups of 3, two participants and one employee. Case study and trading simulation activities.
Day 1: - introduction to markets - opportunities to network and connect with current analysts and associates Overall, a very insightful session where I was able to gain a deep insight into the world of markets. Day 2: - presentation on the $GME short squeeze - trading simulation - networking session with current senior employees
