In June 2015, I began an internship at JPMorgan Chase & Co. in Newark, Delaware as a corporate summer intern in the global technology division. I worked on a team that had a project management function, and my role was as an analyst learning the ropes of a project manager. I had the opportunity to leverage my MIS-related skills by essentially acting as a liaison between the business and technology lines to effectively and efficiently get projects moving along. I had to get fully integrated with internal data systems with the company to expose over-spending with data backups. The culmination of my work came to be as I had the opportunity to present a solution to our group’s CIO on how to reduce costs in data backups.
Jamie Dimon, JPMorgan Chase’s CEO, has said many times that this company is a technology company. It became very apparent once the work started rolling, that technology is certainly a centerpiece within the company. I learned an incredible amount, had the opportunity to showcase some of my MIS skills.
