    Jpm was long time ago for me mate that was for the think ahead program i heard it was a useless program anyway , made me feel a bit better lool
    Hey man, Why do you think the 'think ahead' programme is useless? I got into it for this year. I know its in bournemouth and its mainly back office but at the end of the day it it still gives you a 'JP Morgan' brand on your CV right?

    Yeah. I'm seriously considering whether IB is even for me, I got rejected from Nomura as well. But I'll try again next year since there will be more insight days next year for me to apply to.

    I honestly think it's worth being open minded in this regard.

    There are other well paid, and less competitive roles in finance.

    Apply anyway.. I think they favour kids that haven't had much exposure to IB for their banking uncovered insight programme.

    Nope. If you're good enough or/and are what they're looking for you get the gig.

    Indeed. But the pool of people you're competing is far too large for me to consider it worthwhile.

    There are easier, equally well paid positions to get into. Easier in the respect that there's less competition.
