1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
My role ensured that I received a great overview of a global financial institution, receiving presentations from various different departments at JPMorgan. There was a lot of interaction with employees especially with those in my particular department - UK Credit Markets. I learnt a lot about the credit markets and experienced their live functioning. I was also required complete a project which was based around producing a financial sheet for a company.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I feel I have gained valuable knowledge and skills over my two weeks at JPMorgan. A particular skill of mine that, I feel, has improved greatly has been networking. The various networking events that were organised for us were very helpful in this matter. I think my interpersonal skills have also improved greatly.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoyed the programme very much and it exceeded all my expectations. The culture in the workplace and the friendly atmosphere really added to the enjoyment of the programme. I also learnt a lot about banking which I think was really important for me because it aided me in realising that I would like to pursue a career in banking.
4. How valued do you feel by J.P. Morgan?
Very valued. All employees were very friendly and were willing to help me out whenever I required assistance. I felt particularly valued at the Managing Director's Tea as very senior employees were willing to spend time with us and answer any questions that we may have had - this was very helpful.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
It was very well structured and organised. There was a great variety of tasks and activities and this added to the enjoyment of the programme. All activities were also thoroughly engaging each in their own respects.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
9. Would you recommend J.P. Morgan to a friend?
The culture in JPMorgan is amazing. I know it would be a great place to work even though my time there was very short. I think this makes JPMorgan stand out from other institutions - it is a USP for them.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to J.P. Morgan?
I would say that a real interest in banking should be clearly evident. I don't think there is a better way to gain any sort of internship etc. other than this.
