- Participated in Financial Markets & Commercial Awareness sessions in partnership with Fitch Learning - Collaborated with other interns on case studies and assessments - Engaged in trading simulations
Broadened my understanding and awareness of markets and networked with various J.P. Morgan employees. Worked on my presentation and teamwork skills whilst collaborating on group projects with them.
It was great to learn more about the different market sectors J.P Morgan is involved in and people's roles in said areas. It was great to learn about what a trader, structurist, and analyst do on a day-to-day basis - this helping me greatly deepen my understanding of the sector.
The company culture was friendly, welcoming, and encouraging. All questions I asked were met with answers full of detail and insightful advice. We were constantly encouraged to ask questions, and at no given moment were we made to feel like a question was not good enough. We also participated in a mindfulness session, which helped me gain meditation skills to remain calm during the unprecedented Covid-19 times.
The insight was great. I was able to network with lots of employers and also meet other interns. Obviously, it being virtual, it wasn't easy to simulate being in the actual offices, but I believe that overall the experience was great. The meetings were always on time, and event organisers met the schedule to perfection.
Make sure your CV is well-curated and stands out. Try and participate in university societies and get involved in activities relating to the work area you are trying to get a placement in. Be prepared with questions for networking, and always take notes on what people are saying so you can remember any useful information later on.
