What we offer


Sophomore Edge is designed to help you gain a deep understanding of JPMorgan Chase internship opportunities, ultimately preparing you to apply for for a role that best matches your skills and interests. You'll have the option to choose from three different career tracks, each holding a two-day conference at a JPMorgan Chase U.S. location where you'll learn how to navigate corporate environments and excel in our application process.  

Your development will continue at the end of the program with our virtual community, all designed to equip you with the career advice and guidance you need to successfully secure an internship.  You’ll also have an opportunity to apply and interview for a 2021 summer internship represented in the track you participated in. A successful summer internship experience at JPMorgan Chase can serve as a platform for a full-time analyst position at the firm following graduation.
