JP Morgan hires over 2000 ex convicts

Read an article that says JP Morgan hired over 2000 ex-convicts last year. Apparently they have a "second chance" hiring program going on. I'll post the link below. I was wondering, which jails would be good targets. I was thinking United States Penitentiary Atlanta? Let me know what you guys think!

It's funny because all the Asians at my school are too rich to give a single fuck about recruiting (or Banking) and came to US for a "4-year vacation"

Pretty big difference between Asian-Americans and the richest Asians from the continent who come to the US/UK for an adventure.

I found it hilarious how this is the first thing that pops into your mind when this news comes out - literally hundred other things you could have thought about haha. Think in this day and age race takes up 95% of people's mental space LMAO.

Im assuming most of them are going to Chase rather than JPM

Oct 24, 2019

I'd say that is a safe assumption - from what I've read, this is aimed at putting people into basic entry level positions, most likely in the consumer bank or back office. We're not going to see people placed into front office IB from this anytime soon.

JPM actually has more BO roles than the Chase side of the business.

They'll probably end up at both, however the S&T / IBD divisions that sit in JPM have quite a vast amount of Product / Financial Control, Ops, Business Mgmt roles.

this is a good program, anyone who disagrees given our country's historically biased legal system might actually be racist

Yes! That info would be much appreciated.

Target jails are Manhattan Correctional Center (where Jeffrey Epstein was),

I would put Alcatraz, but that is closed

Taft Correctional Institution (The Wolf of Wall Street)

Lovelock Correctional Center (OJ Simpson was here- In the 1990s, he tried to break into a more prestigious target jail in Los Angeles, but was unable to do so)

Serial killers have the highest propensity to making it to their c-suite. Imagine having someone who made a lamp shade out of pizza delivery guys orchestrating a hostile takeover of your company?
