Networking- there is more to it than you think• Advice for JP Morgan Events• Ensure you leave your "comfort zone" and approach people to politely introduce yourself. If youre unsure of whos who, use the graduate recruiters to introduce you• Shake hands - a firm hand shake goes a long way• Dont feel nervous about approaching a group of people i.e. business representatives who are already talking to students• Ask appropriate and concise questions, and ask questions that require more than yes/no answers• Be clear in your communication. The people you meet understand that you may be nervous but they will respond favourably to someone who is genuine, interested and non-aggressive• If youre not very confident, try not to attach yourself to the first person you speak to• Always pay attention to the person you are speaking to and be interested in what they are saying• During the event, moderation with alcohol is important - over indulgence can leave negative impressions• It often helps to make notes following the networking sessions. These may come in handy if you apply for a position• Source JP Morgan website

We want you to fully understand the opportunities were offering, so that you can make your application with confidence. But we understand that when put on the spot, its not always easy to come up with questions. Weve highlighted a few to get you started:• Why did you join J.P. Morgan?• Whats the difference between J.P. Morgan and its competitors?• Are there any downsides to working here?• What do you have to do to get promoted?• How easy is it to work abroad?• What are the differences among the business areas?• Have you experienced any difficulties - and how did you overcome them?• How do you balance your work and personal life?• What has the highlight of your career been so far?• How long did it take you to feel like you were making a real contribution?• Was there a big culture shock when you joined?• Tell me about your experience as a summer intern?• Whos been an inspiration to you?
Networking- there is more to it than you think• Business cards• The good old business card is still one of the best networking tools. At our campus networking evenings, youll notice that we give you personalized business cards on arrival. Hand these to the J.P. Morgan representatives you want to impress, and those who have impressed you. These cards are also a great way for us to catch up with you after the event.
Networking- there is more to it than you think• Be yourself, but be your best self… that takes some thought and preparation!• Networking is as much about listening as it is about talking… the loudest person in the room is not necessarily the most impressive
