Success story: Jeremy Thomas accepted to JPMorgan Chase
Jeremy Thomas‘s excellent performance in last year’s JPMorgan Chase case-study competition must have caught the eye of recruiters and executives at the company — because he has received a full-time job offer. Congratulations, Jeremy!
A senior majoring in business administration with concentrations in finance and marketing, Jeremy will become an investment banking audit analyst and will work at the 245 Park Avenue office in Manhattan. His job will be to understand the products and processes of JPMorgan Chase’s investment bank and help to identify and analyze risks associated wtih them. Jeremy also will test controls and meet with managers to discuss his findings, and will help to develop cost-effective solutions for improving the control environment.
Jeremy’s experience demonstrates the role that major firms’ undergraduate case-study competitions can play in hiring. He and his fellow team members made it to the finals of the 2011 JPMorgan contest, where they placed second. “Because of how well I worked with my team and how I performed during the presentations,” Jeremy said, “I was asked back for an interview, upon which I received an offer.” Current Gabelli students, take note!
