Matt Mitro, Head of Campus Recruiting
July 2019

Dear Students,  

I hope you’re enjoying your summer and getting some well-deserved R&R. Whether you’re spending this summer completing an internship, working as a camp counselor, or taking summer courses, I encourage you to go all in and maximize the opportunity.

Below are a few developments at our firm since I last updated you on our recruiting season.

• We spent this spring getting to know students across many colleges and universities by hosting events such as Winning Women, Sophomore Edge, and regional diversity summits – all with the goal of preparing you for our recruitment season.  If you missed us, please tune in to our virtual events through Online Academy.

• We were just ranked the #2 employer of choice among business school students and the top ranked bank among Computer Science majors in the U.S. (Source: Universum Global)

• Between June and July, we welcomed thousands of interns to our offices around the world.

• For the first time, we offered a three-part learning series entitled Your Financial Journey to all our US interns – one more way JPMorgan Chase helps students get financially fit and achieve their goals.

• More than 3,000 technology students participated in our 25 hackathons – over half of which were diversity-focused.  Students built tech solutions for nonprofits that focus on things like disaster relief and recovery. Upcoming in the fall, Code For Good will provide students the opportunity to collaborate with other coders to develop innovative technology solutions for nonprofit organizations.

Many of you have already started applying for 2020 internships. You may remember our point of view: Companies making early offers and enforcing deadlines puts too much pressure on students when they should be studying and exploring their career options. An independent research organization (Ivy Research Council) confirmed this view and showed the impact on underrepresented students in particular.

Not every company follows our approach so we’ve been fielding questions from lots of students who already have offers and are feeling the pressure to decide before they’re ready.

Below are our thoughts for consideration based on your most common questions.

We hope you find this helpful. To keep up with how we think about careers, please follow us on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram, and join our talent network.
