  12. Concrete modelsProfessional aspect JPMorgan as a company? • The engagement of JP Morgan for communities is also something that appeals to me. I believe that successful companies have a responsibility toward populations in need. They are models for their development. Moreover successful companies should give back to society what they have benefited. • JP Morgan is a very attractive place to develop fundamental hard and soft skills. In addition to top-five league table rankings, it ranks in the Businessweek top-ten “best places to launch a career”. As part of its strategy, JP Morgan gives priority to environmental issues like mortgage granting on environmental impact conditions. Why interested in a GTP? I am interested in a Graduate Training Programme because I know that it is the most interesting, challenging and safest way to integrate a multinational company, develop its management skills and to come along well in it.

Financial services as an industry? • Financial services represent a huge industry made of gorgeous companies, which provide essential financial services to their customers.JP Morgan, with assets on 1.3 trillion and more than 160 000 employees across 50 countries, is one of the leading firms. • Financial services have characteristics, which made the industry very attractive: • One is the diversity of jobs. For example, JP Morgan Chase encompasses 6 lines of business and proposes many different opportunities: Every people can do different positions and finally find what suit him best. • Explain the skills you have developed which make you potentially suited? • Then, my different internships brought me essential skills to work in a bank, particularly for the position of sales, which is my ultimate objective: my experiences in ********* as a sales manager and in ********* as a purchaser taught me business relationships with European and American people whereas my experience as an auditor in ******* showed me analytical way of thinking: how to be accurate, understandable, pleasant with clients and on time, when I coped with difficult deadlines.

  14. Explain the skills you have developed which make you potentially suited? • As a student, I initiated and organized participations to student simulation competitions, Euromanager in **** and Danone Trust Game in **** Being the team leader of the winning team of the **** Danone Trust Game illustrates my pro-activeness, my team work and organizational skills. I set up the team by recruiting the members with a great attention to group dynamics as well as diversity. It proved to be an efficient team. I overviewed the application process. During the game, I motivated and supported other members. Furthermore, I drove issues resolutions and insured suitable decisions were made on time. This competition resembled real working conditions: analysis, decision making, setting up and delivering presentations on a team environment. All steps performed under time constraints and exceptional conditions such as answering questions from a CEO and executives.

  15. What is your motivation to work in sales in the chosen markets? • Moreover, I wish to be able to evolve in an international context. In other words, I wish to gain further understanding of your company "from the inside" while moving within several international markets. Through my studies and internships I have really come to appreciate to what extent international mobility has contributed to my maturity and evolution. • I want to continue in self-development and fulfil my potential, and so am not at all daunted by the prospect of gaining responsibilities within your company as quickly as possible and to be able to take an active role in your success at an international level.
