Reuters - JPMorgan Chase revamps entry-level program for technologists

JPMorgan Chase

JPMorgan Chase has revamped its entry-level program for technologists to attract more young software engineers amid a battle for top talent between Wall Street and Silicon Valley.

Reuters reports that the bank has adapted the two-year curriculum to focus on technical skills and will provide recruits hands-on experience on more challenging projects, Lori Beer, JPMorgan’s global chief information officer, told Reuters on Thursday.

The new hires will also be given technical assessments and training and will be assigned to managers who act as career advisers, she added.

“We wanted to take a fresh look not only at how other financial services firms think about talent but also, other high tech companies,” Beer said. “We have fantastic talent but we need a lot of it.”
