Outstanding Business/Professional Development and Hands-On Training
Columbus, OH | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The real-word, hands-on experience that you get to conduct while being an intern. The work that I was given did not make me feel like an intern doing "grunt work". I felt like a full-time employee of the company that was welcomed among my coworkers.


Downers

The mid-summer evaluations were so close to the beginning of the internship. I felt like I didn't have a chance to develop much before my evaluation. I know that having it early allows for the offer letters to come out sooner, but even if it was pushed back a week I feel that it would be helpful.


Advice to Potential Interns

I think that it would be helpful for a candidate to know that JP Morgan Chase is a rapidly growing company where work is placed in a fast-paced, quick learning environment. It is also important to be extremely professional and to have close attention to detail.


Sample Interview Questions

1. If you are just about to give a PowerPoint presentation in a meeting and you notice that there was an error, what would you do? (Not exact wording but general concept)

One of the best places to launch a career in finance
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Closing a deal and seeing it on the front page of the Wall Street Journal.


Downers

Long hours at times, but that was to be expected.


Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure you're actually passionate about the industry. While it's easy to get carried away focusing on the specific tasks you're assigned i.e. building a model, putting together a chart, it's important to grasp the big picture of the analysis itself - you're providing advice to multi billion dollar companies on what may be the most important transactions of their lives.


Sample Interview Questions

Tell me about a class you did poorly in.

What are some ways a company can use excess cash?

Walk me through some ways you can value a company.

What is a company you find interesting?


Would You Recommend

Yes

Surprisingly, the demanding 9-week internship flew by and the interns don't want to leave
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The group environment that I was in. Working long hours really didn't feel that long with the people that I was working with.


Downers

How unpredictable the work hours are. I had to come in on Saturdays/Sundays on an hours notice sometimes.


Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure you are interested in finance and in investment banking. Someone who isn't interested wouldn't last in this career.


Sample Interview Questions

What are the three most common methods to value a company?

Walk me through a DCF

Good Hours, Good Pay, Great People- What More Can You Ask For?
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I love the company culture and the people that I met. Also, I definitely had a very unique experience in that I was often in the right place at the right time, so I got to meet a lot of really cool, high-up people.


Downers

I didn't like how I didn't know too many other intern- the social events didn't encourage sociability, and overall people were too busy.


Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure you are yourself in the interviews, because if you want to start your career at a place where you love the people and they like you.


Sample Interview Questions

If you were in a group project and someone messed up so that you were not able to meet the deadline, how would you react and how would you speak to that person?

Chicago, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

If you were not outgoing or eager to work hard, some people in my program found themselves without a lot of work/projects because they did not take the initiative to network and communicate that they had bandwidth.
