    About You

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?
  • Fantastic combination of hard work, networking and socialising with the other students.


  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?
  • The speakers and mentors seemed to really value our potential contribution to the firm and it was obvious that a lot of time, money and effort had gone into ensuring that we had the opportunity to learn and shine.


  • 3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?
  • We were allocated a mentor between two and a mentor for our presentation group. As well as being able to freely email those we met at networking events, the support network was perfect.


  • 4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I learnt volumes about the Investment Banking industry and culture, as well as the more technical aspects of valuation, risk management and financing.


    The Company

  • 5. How well structured was the insight?
  • We were constantly busy and never for a moment devoid of things to learn and do.


  • 6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?
  • It was extremely useful to see the how productive and motivated the professionals working at JP are. This ensured the atmosphere among us students equally intense and competitive.


  • 7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • Shy of paying us, JP invested in every area possible to ensure we were able to make the most of our time at JP and learn as much as possible.


  • 8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?
  • We learnt as much as we could from talking to the staff at JP but were unable to shadow an actual IB or IB Risk desk, purely because of the private nature of industry. This is unfortunate but unavoidable. However, maybe it would be possible to at least be shown around the building to see a desk or two and not necessarily have access to any private information.


  • 9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?
  • 5/5

  • 10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?
  • The week really clarified what I am looking forward in a future career.


    Everything Else

  • 11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?

  • 12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?
  • To the extent that there was rarely a chance to eat, we were never devoid of opportunities to meet new people at the firm and understand more and more about banking as a whole from the inside.


  • 13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?
  • 5/5

  • 14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?
  • 4/5

  • 15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?
  • I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the other students on the programme and learn so much from the people at JP and the project we were set.
