Title: Analyst, Sales & Trading, JPMorgan Investment Bank
Age: 23
Company: JPMorgan Chase
Fortune 500 rank: 12

"I joined JPMorgan through Alumni Athlete, an organization that interviews college athletes from across the country and helps place them in the financial industry. I knew very little about life on Wall Street; however, I jumped at the opportunity to utilize my skills as an athlete - playing basketball at NYU - in my career and Alumni Athlete gave me the chance to do so."
