Yash Abrol from the MBA batch of 2019-21, who is currently specializing in the field of Finance interned at JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPMC) as a part of his summer internship.
As his undergraduate degree, Yash has pursued a Bachelor of Commerce, Accounting, and Finance. While revealing some insight on his project at JPMC as a Finance intern, Yash was working on 3 specific projects and his experience with JPMC was fantastic. The company made sure that the internship was seamless, considering how quickly things changed due to the pandemic, just around when the internship was about to start.
The summer internship project at JPMC was spaciously segmented. The deadlines and deliverables for the stint of his internship were wisely planned beforehand so as to avoid any clashes. The data required for the projects was made accessible easily for the interns so that deliverables could be completed in a timely fashion. Since, Yash was entering into the corporate world for the very first time, his mentor was the most helpful person to share the insights of the corporate culture and their approach of work. The work culture at JPMC is nurturing one and everyone is extremely friendly and helpful at every hierarchical level. The company conducted many activities with fellow interns that helped him through his journey the most. His desire to learn as much as possible, being open to feedback and to continuously improve, gave an edge over others in getting a PPO.
The sudden shift of mode of internship to a virtual one was in itself the most challenging task to deal with, which made all other conflicts and challenges of the internship seem easy to overcome. His mentor buddy at the company helped him every time he faced any technical errors or minor glitches which made work easy for him. He made sure to learn and keep himself up to date with all the changes occurring in his domain of work. This extra effort helped him deliver more precise deliverables with better efficiency. On the successful completion of his project, Yash secured himself a pre-placement offer.
A piece of advice that Yash would like to give to the junior batch is that no matter what the conditions are, whether the working mode is offline or online, the work shouldn’t suffer at any expense. He believes that it is essential to have a receptive outlook and an ability to understand what the management expects from you. Lastly, he suggests to be proactive in solving queries at each stage of the project.
We wish him all the best for his future endeavours.
