JPM IB analyst 2019 South Africa

Intern in PE - Other

Anyone else apply to this role, or have knowledge of the recruiting process? I applied back in September, completed the ply-metrics game and then almost forgot about it, until they emailed me requesting the hirevue out of the blue a day or two ago, I did it naturally and am now waiting...

My question is, is this still live? Chances and on boarding process of getting the spot in South Africa?

Genuinely curious as to why SA? I haven't heard great things but maybe i am wrong.

Honestly, I thought it would be a cool opportunity and somewhat of an adventure. Have spent time in the country and thoroughly enjoyed it.

The desk that I would be sitting on is a very active one, lots of communication with clients, basically covering all of the region less a few French or Arabic speaking parts.

Also would make for some interesting exit opps after, being able to cover the region from NY, HK or London or possibly move in to emerging market acquisitions as a lot of new companies are forming and soon the will be heavy investment in services like telecommunications and insurance.

Also the weather is considerably better than the freezing rain that is coming down around me in Toronto right now.
