I'm wondering what your thoughts are on this. I'm 1/4 Irish and 3/4 German. I come from a wealthy family, but they wouldn't even pay for braces. My teeth are a bit crooked (almost done invisalign in two months), two small chips due to playing spots, and kind of small due to my genes (parents also skimped in whole milk, quality fish, etc...). I really don't want to be held down due to this minor (perceived) flaw. I've always been the brightest and would rather do technology sales than be held down for life in a place like NYC. I can either spend 25-30k on my teeth or put it towards a

Hi All, I am a Chinese international student studying in US, and I am lucky to get 2020 SA S&T offer from JPM, specifically for Sales Track. Do you have any recommendation on the desk placement? I am studying Econ in college, and I am not so good at math (mid-level). I am wondering where my edge is compared to the other kids? I heard Rates groups had many Chinese clients so maybe that would be a good choice? Thanks. Appreciate your insights.

I've got offers on S&T Summer Intern in HK from JP Morgan and Merrill Lynch these two banks. Both on the equity side. How will you choose and why? Thank you!

Whenever I was asked this question, I never gave a bullshit answer. I said that obviously the hours aren't a pro of working in this industry, but its not something that i necessarily mind and it will help me learn a lot. I also brought up my student loan debt and that I really wanted to pay it off. Interested to hear other perspectives on this.

Hey, I currently have offers from JPM in their wholesale payments division and form PwC for their management consulting associate role, both at the London office. my eventual aim is to make it to IB, either through an MBA or laterally (I know, I like dreaming). to achieve this, I don't know how I should proceed. While JPM would show my interest in finance, the role at PwC might be more client-facing and beneficial?

Basically ^, I'm going to be an IB summer analyst at one of the bulge bracket banks and I'm really excited. Are there any classes I should take this semester (as a junior), or anything to do to prepare, or anything to aim to do during the internship to turn it into a full time offer? Should I keep in touch with the people who interviewed me, and to what extent? One of the MD's set up a call between me and some former analysts who all said it was important to ask questions, but besides that is there anything glaringly obvious that I should focus on? Also, my school has classes like corporate

I just recently finished my freshman year with just above a 3.7 GPA at a target school and I want to double major in either Math and Economics OR Math and Philosophy (and maybe add a minor if I have time). I'm also involved in 4 organizations on campus, and I'm on a committee for 3 of them. 3 of the orgs are also business related. As I'm going into my sophomore year, I'm curious what exactly I need to do to make myself stand out to most banks and have a shot at the top ones. I'm currently doing a financial services internship so I'm getting experience but I'm also debating if I should take a

Hello All! It's my first time on the site. I've been a long-time reader. I have received two internship offers from two commercial banks. My first offer is from Jp Morgan Chase in their Middle Market Banking and Specialized Industries. This program would most likely be in the city of Chicago. They do a lot of Cash Flow Lending for Working Capital Finance. Full time I've heard they pay 72k-75k plus bonus. It is a 3-year analyst program where you do rotations through Underwriting, RM, and Treasury Services. They are definitely a leading bank in commercial banking. My second offer is from Capital

Hi, Was wondering if anyone had any information on JP Morgan Platform Sales – Securities Services, Client Executive role? What do they exactly do? It's housed in CIB but they work across Fund Services, Prime Brokerage, Clearing, etc? Not entirely clear if its middle or back office. Any information would be incredilbly helpful.

Does anyone have any questions/insight into the Hirevue questions for JPMorgan Chase SA 2019 Asset Management in NYC? I'm assuming its behavior, but since this is my first hirevue-no clue. Also, is this a first round or still an initial screening type of process (automated or does it mean something?). Thanks

I have a Wealth Managment Super-Day scheduled for this Friday after only doing HireVue, It's going to consist of a lunch and 5-30 minute interviews. What should I be focused on for preparation/does anyone have any personal insight they can share as to what I should expect? I'll be interviewing at a mid-western office. Appreciate any insight, thanks

Past posts on this topic seem outdated. About to go through JPMorgan investment banking placement over the next couple of weeks. I'm interested in PE, which groups will give me the best technical experience that also have enjoyable people to work with? Also what questions do groups asks during placement? Should I prep for technicals and questions on past deals or is it all about fit?

I am curious in Hong Kong, if my target is a career of investment banking in top BB, which one should I take if for 2020 summer I only have these two choice: Barclays IBD in HK or JPM's SnT (Sales)? Or If I do not apply for IBD again next year and just take return offer, what are the exit opportunities for both? Thanks so much!

I have a superday in October with JP Morgan in Commercial Banking ( I will interview for one their divisions of MMBSI, CCBSI, or Real Estate). I want to know what should technical/interpersonal skills I should practice. What key insights or advice would you give to standout as a candidate. Thanks! *Note I can pick 2 divisions within Commercial Banking, so any advice on any division would be greatly appreciated!
14 Sep 2020
Could somebody please make a bulleted list of all of the bulge bracket banks and include the core competencies for each bank at what they're best at? This would be to everyone's benefit who wants to learn the "scoop" on each of the big players

Hey all, title pretty much explains it. I'm planning on applying to JP Morgan's Early Advantage program - but don't see any information about it on their website. Also interested in Winning Women program, but it says that applications are closed... do applications just open later than for other BBs? Any thoughts?

Happy Friday everyone!, Hope you are all excited about the weekend. I have received two offers so far from both JP and GS as the title indicates. I was wondering if anyone can give me any advice or insight on the programs and which would offer better opportunities in the future e.g, B School, or transitioning into a FO role like IB, S&T. If anyone has gone through the Global Finance internship could you also shed some light on the program and how it went for you? Thanks in advance!

Hi guys, sophomore at non-target here. I submitted my app for JP Morgan IBD 2019 yesterday and just got invited to do a video interview. Anyone else get the video interview? Also, will there be another phone interview after this or straight to superday? Any insight or advice is appreciated. J.P. Morgan Investment Banking Interview Process Anyone going through the JP Morgan IBD application and interview process probably knows what to expect. You've done your research. You've networked with any contact you could think of. You've been active on the WSO IB forum. Congratulations on making the

Intro I am an incoming IBD summer analyst for JP Morgan. HR said that group placement will be announced in March, so I am trying to narrow down my top choices. Two Questions 1. Which groups provide the best experience? I heard that Healthcare, M&A, FSG, FIG, DI, and T/MT are the best so far, but I would like to hear the forum's opinions. 2. How important is networking for placement into these top groups? (I go to a non-target)

Hi all, This entertaining post is for the history and financial history monkeys out there. What is your favorite financier of the past and why? Most of us have read about the Weinbergs and Rohatyns of the past but I'd like to hear about the less known but equally inspiring figures of the 20th century and older. Cheers! Torero

I recently applied to the JP Morgan Launching leaders in specific to commercial banking. It said that I would recieve a Hirevue, is the Hirevue sent to those who qualify or do they select students already who get to take the Hirevue? I want to know if anybody has already gotten their hirevue for this program/division.

Amazon is a just retail/tech company, right? According to this article, it looks like finance is the next stop for Amazon:
BUT [quote]The effort is still in its early stages and may not come to fruition, the people said. The talks with financial firms are Amazon.com Inc. AMZN is in talks with big banks including JPMorgan Chase & Co. about building a checking-account-like product the e-commerce giant could offer its customers, according to people familiar with the matter.

Hi guys, I am in a weird situation and would love to hear out some opinions. Two months ago, I started working as and IBD analyst at one of the top 3 IB banks in their NYC HQ. However, I managed to get (what I believe is) a better job opportunity for me in the meantime and now I am thinking about quitting the IB to join the other company. Honestly, the work I have now is not so bad, but I feel like it's not for me in the long term (the hours, culture, some parts of the work...), whether the other opportunity feels quite perfect. If I had it three months ago I would choose it over my current

Hi, Background: I'm a rising junior at a top target (think Harvard/Wharton) and I'm looking to get a 2019 summer internship at a bulge bracket bank. In highschool, I had solid extracurriculars (a lot of student government, debate, and continent-level recognition for leadership) and grades (2350 SAT, 44IB, etc). In college, I messed up my first semester GPA really badly so rn I'm resting at a 3.33 going into junior year. I still have quite a lot of extra curricular activities in college and I'm currently a private equity summer analyst at a firm with usd2+billion aum in Singapore right now

Monkeys-- Just received an invitation for a JPM Investor Services superday for Friday, Nov. 3rd. I have had a couple superdays so I know the logistics. This superday, however, is scheduled from 8am - 5pm. It says we will have three half-hour interviews, programming, and networking opportunities. Anyone familiar w/this format? Also, any particulars to Investor Services is welcome! Any and all insight into this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi everyone, I have a super day with JP Morgan's commercial bank for the 2018 Summer Analyst position with their MM Banking and Specialized Industries Group. I initially wanted CIB, but I guess they want me to interview with MMSI instead. I'm not quite sure as to what the position entails. From the research i've done so far, it seems like this group gives out loans to middle market businesses. So I feel like the position is focused on risk and financing solutions? The super day is for their NYC office. The super day is October 27th. This is also my first super day ever, so any insights would

Hi guys, Just wanted to gauge opinions on the forum about junior year SA offers my friend is currently deciding between. One is Wells Fargo IB (either in Charlotte or NYC, location not secured yet) or JPM Asset Management (NYC).

I recently received an offer from Crowe Horwath for tech risk consultant, which is like #8 on the accounting firm rankings, and an offer with JP Morgan for Middle market banking (MMBSI). The offers are similar, within a few grands differences. I was wondering which one would be better for (1) applying for MBA; (2) possibly joining a consulting firm in the future (MBB, LEK, Deloitte Consulting). Big 4 doesn't recruit at my school for non-tax positions, and deloitte mostly recruits advisory roles. I am from a non-target school, so the chances of making a non Deloitte consulting firm are really

Anyone has heard back from JP regarding super days at their office in London? The deadline was 15/03/2020 and interviews should have been deducted in April. My application is still 'under consideration' after completing the HireVue interview. I read that JP has put new hires on hold because of the Corona situation. But I'm curious if anyone has heard back from JP regarding next steps?

So I'm starting to think Hirevue are automatic for anyone applying to JPM London as I've gotten first round for all 3 things I applied to. Has anyone applied and not gotten an invite for Hirevue?

JPM has a 2-3 year old platform in their IBD called the Family Coverage Group. They essentially provide M&A advisory services to middle market customers originating from their private banking / commercial banking platforms. I'm aware that there are some posts on this website regarding JPM's Mid Corporate Investment Banking, but I'm not sure that this is the same thing. Here's a job opening from them: https://www.velvetjobs . com/job-posting/cib-regional-investment-banking-associate-los-angeles-440753

Hello All, Just for fun, I thought it would be interesting to get everyone's take on the top 10 groups in investment banking considering reputation, dealflow, senior leaders within group, overall prestige, etc. I totally recognize this is subjective and shouldn't be used as a way to make employment decisions. With that said, what are YOUR top 10 groups across BB, EB, MM, etc?

I want to break into either consulting or I-banking. Trying to decide which school is the best fit to break into consulting or I-Banking. Do most firms see PennLPS like Columbia? A lot of my friends from Columbia have broken into investment banking. Just curious.

I currently have multiple offers from BBs in Hong Kong (to preserve anonymity, I won't say which ones, but a few are considered here "top BBs"). I know the US reputations of the BBs, but are things the same/different in Asia (for example, is GS TMT still considered the best, followed by MS M&A)? None of the offers is group-specific, and my only considerations are reputation and exit opps to PE megafunds in Asia (KKR, Carlyle, Bain Cap, etc.). With that in mind, how would you rank the BBs in Asia?

I interviewed with JP in the Private Bank earlier in May. Does anyone know when people generally hear back? The recruiter told me about two weeks and I still have not heard anything.
