Hello! I am new to this forum. So first I will start you on a background.
I am currently about to graduate in December with a degree in Finance, from a non target school (University of Central Florida). I have a 3.1 GPA and will most likely remain around that. Honestly, I do not even care too much about getting exactly into Investment Banking, but I do want an entry level analyst position at a prominent investment banking firm, even if it is not in IB.
My Work Experience:
Bartender at Disney for 3 years
summer internship at a Financial Services Firm.
I also got a nice letter of recommendation from my internship manager, who previously worked on Wall Street for a number of years.
I do not care wherever in the world I get a job at, I just want my foot in the door for JPM, GS, Deutsche Bank or another prominent firm. However, I am confused as if I need to apply for a summer internship program or if I just apply for a full time position. I am also confused as to which program I apply to as well. For instance, I am looking at JP Morgan. They have these positions they are hiring for:
RIsk Management Analyst - Hong Kong, Singapore, London, USA
Markets off cycle Analyst - Australia, Germany, Spain, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom
Global Treasury Management Analyst - Bahrain, Hong Kong, Singapore, U.S.A., United Kingdom, China
Markets Analyst - Australia, China, France, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, U.S.A., United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom
Investor Services - Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, U.S.A., United Kingdom
Wealth management Analyst -France, Hong Kong, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, U.S.A., United Kingdom
Commercial Banking - U.S.A.
Asset Management Analyst - Canada, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, U.S.A., United Kingdom
Global Finance Analyst - China, Hong Kong, Singapore, U.S.A., United Kingdom
Investment Banking Seasonal Analyst - Belgium, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Israel, Italy, Poland, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom
Investment Banking Winter Analyst Program - Australia
Corporate Analyst **-China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, South Korea, Thailand, U.S.A., United Kingdom, Australia
**Audit Analyst - USA
Investment Banking Analyst
The bold items also have a corresponding Full Time position opening for Undergraduate levels.
I assume Investment Banking without an internship is next to impossible, but what about the other positions?
I am sorry if I may be vague.
These are only for JPM, but I imagine almost all the other banks have a similar set up to this.
Also I want to stress that I will literally go anywhere (London, Singapore, Tokyo, NYC) wherever!
Thank you very much!
