Packing up the apartment, 3 Finals, 5 Papers, 1 Presentation, Packing my life up into 2 suitcases, and Flying to New York City. These is the outlook of my life in a 12 day window as I scramble to take all my finals early, move out of my apartment on campus, then move in to our NYC apartment about 12 hours before my summer internship begins.
My name is Erica Wong, and I will be interning with JPMorgan Chase & Co. in New York City with their Investment Banking, Financial Institutions Group (FIG). FIG is a coverage group in the investment bank specialized in clients which include banks & thrifts, broker dealers, insurance and specialty finance.
I’m a third year in Fisher College of Business majoring in Finance and Accounting with a minor in International Studies. I’m part of the Honors Contract program as well as a member of Fisher Futures. If you (Yes, you!) are interested in a career in investment banking, I highly suggest the Futures program; one applies during their sophomore year
I grew up in Dublin, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus, but was born in Taiwan. I have been fortunate to travel extensively abroad and many times to NYC as well, and absolutely ADORE the city!! Living and working in NYC has been my goal for many years, and I am beyond excited to be spending a trial period there this summer.
So, that’s a bit about myself and how I’ll be spending my summer, but if you’re at all interested in financial services or working in NYC, be sure to keep reading!!!
I wish you all the best of luck on finals! Happy Summer!
