    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • The Early Insight into Technology 2021 provided me with a taste of what to expect pursuing a fintech career in JP Morgan. I took part in several coding challenges, such as programming a sanction screening algorithm and a data query program to find employees who meet specific criteria. I also got the chance to meet some of the J.P. Morgan employees and ask some questions.


    Skills

  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • I believe I have learned more about tech in the banking sector and what to expect if I work in one of these roles. Additionally, as I'm not a computer science student (I have learned how to program on my self) I got a feel of how to program with tight deadlines.
