  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • On the programme we were provided with market and financial product training provided by AMT Training for the first couple of days. These classes were there to cement our understanding of Markets, financial terminology and financial products. On the first day we also were provided with a DebateMate session to help improve our communication skills throughout the spring week. There were also various insight talks exposing interns to the different divisions at JPM as well as plenty interactive case studies and networking opportunities to get involved in. There was also plenty of time for Q&A’s at the end of talks and during the networking sessions.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • I have bettered my communication skills and how I present myself in a virtual space. I have increased my ability to network from speaking with multiple interns and JPM Representatives from the London, Bournemouth, Madrid, Brussels, Paris and New York Office. I also improved my problem solving and teamwork skills when participating in interactive case studies and discussions surrounding issues of M&A, a Credit Risk game, evaluating the impact of the US stimulus package and a discussion on technology impacting the payments industry.

    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • It was a highly exciting and invigorating experience seeing how multiple divisions function within the firm during talks and interacting with those in multiple roles within JPM during the networking sessions via Zoom breakout rooms. It was great hearing from people of various levels in the firm from Analyst, Associate, VP, MD and ED level. Analysts provided us with a great recent perspective of their pathway into JPM and the early years in their graduate programme. Similarly, I thoroughly enjoyed the Senior Networking session where I was able to have a great discussion about the JPM Real Estate division in New York. It seems there are multiple roles at JPM and there's a place for everyone whatever background you may be from or what skillsets you may have.

  • 4. What was the company culture and general atmosphere like?
  • The company culture is very welcoming. Every person I spoke to said the people is what makes working at JPM worth it and I could sense that when speaking to JPM Representatives in networking sessions and connecting with them on LinkedIn. They are highly supportive of growth and answering your questions and despite me not even working at the firm, every person was super accessible and easy to talk to during the virtual spring week.

    Your Impressions

  • 5. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?
  • I really enjoyed the insight. I learnt so much about the financial industry, J.P. Morgan and met so many amazing people. It was action packed and exposed me to so many different areas and the connections I made were really great. There are so many divisions offered at J.P. Morgan it is hard to narrow down to one. I loved learning about different financial concepts and how mentally stimulating the insight was; being able to apply real life examples of Deliveroo IPO’s or the impact of bitcoin was a really good time to learn and hear perspectives from interns and JPM Representatives. I also enjoyed winning the Credit Risk game with my team. Overall, a really enjoyable experience.

  • 8. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to J.P. Morgan
  • Go for it. Be proactive. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. J.P. Morgan is a great firm to learn about and work at. Be curious to learn and be open minded and go for every opportunity you can. In the application process make sure to be mindful of CV and past experiences that have helped you grow, make an impact and build new skillsets. Get yourself involved in building your financial knowledge, the early insight is not technical but an interest in finance and what’s happening in the industry is great to have. Join societies and attend webinars. Get connected and have a LinkedIn account to see more J.P. Morgan/ financial insights and feel free to connect with past interns for application advice.
