With risk management more important than ever, our Risk summer internship program sets you up for a successful full-time career. As a Summer Analyst, you will have an extraordinary opportunity to see what the Risk group at J.P. Morgan is really all about. As a key member of the team, you are expected to make a personal impact right from the start. After orientation and training, you will benefit from on-the-job experiences and networking opportunities throughout the summer, while handling real responsibilities during your internship. Risk is at the very heart of what we do as a business, which means your work will help us protect the capital of the firm and influence the performance of the bank across the entire product range.
We hire most of our full-time Analysts from the pool of Summer Analysts, so you may find yourself returning to school with a full-time offer in your pocket.
The magnitude of a Summer Analyst's job
As a Summer Analyst, you will gain hands-on experience in managing risk and learning from outstanding colleagues. You'll work alongside our top-tier professionals and see how the Risk team profoundly impacts our business results. This means that the more successful we are at managing risk, the more successful we are as a firm. You'll be well respected, gain immediate exposure to senior management and quickly develop a firmwide perspective of our lines of business.
Summer Analysts are placed into one of the following groups: Credit Risk, Country Risk, Market Risk, or Special Credits.
Responsibility from the start
Depending on the group you join as a Risk Summer Analyst, you will:
- Perform customer due diligence
- Build and maintain financial models
- Assign credit ratings and maintain updated credit research on a portfolio of clients
- Prepare quarterly and annual portfolio reviews highlighting credit exposures across industries and products
- Monitor risk exposures, understand the factors that drive the risk
- Work closely with the business, including Quantitative Research, Applications Development, Investment Banking, Sales & Trading and legal to develop models and handle new types of transactions
Training and development
You'll experience world-class, hands-on training – both during orientation and throughout your internship. The summer internship starts with a five-day orientation program, where you'll get a crash course in Investment Banking, micro and macroeconomics, accounting, modeling, global markets and industries, and that's just for starters. After this, you will participate in an interactive training course specific to Risk. In addition, you'll have the unique opportunity to participate in our Risk Deal Challenge, where you'll compete against Summer Analysts from all over J.P. Morgan and present to a panel of senior judges — a great way to make a lasting impression on some of our senior Risk representatives.
Throughout the course of the summer, you'll gain skills that will stay with you forever. You'll create a deep professional network with other Summer Analysts and more senior colleagues, both within and outside of Risk. You will work hard and learn a lot, and it will be worth it.
