CPC BEST (Business Exploration Student Track) with JPMorgan Chase
On Friday, February 23, 2018, 11 JPMorgan Chase volunteers came to CPC’s Manhattan Community Center to mentor a group of 14 students who are participants of CPC’s BEST (Business Exploration Student Track) program. BEST is a program designed to help CPC alumni, who are now college students, gain a deeper understanding of what it means to work in the business industry.
At the event, JPMorgan staff shared their experience over a roundtable discussion and a rapid fire Q&A session. They answered questions about what their major was in college, how they got their job at JPMorgan, and how they achieve an optimal work-life balance. JPMorgan staff also conducted a resume review and mock interview session for CPC participants and gave constructive feedback on how participants could improve. The event concluded with an informal networking session where participants could chat with the JPMorgan staff and ask any follow-up questions.
CPC is immensely thankful to the volunteers at JPMorgan who dedicated their time to this partnership that benefits college students in pursuit of a career in business. We look forward to the possibility of more future events!

The Chinese-American Planning Council (CPC) partnered with Lai Ling Li, a Vice President at JPMorgan Chase (JPMC) and launched the Business Exploration Student Track (BEST) Mentorship Program in January 2018. The mentorship program has three components: a workshop dedicated to coaching students on resume building, mock interview and leadership skills; a Spotlight Speaker Series panel featuring guest speakers to provide career navigation; and a networking session.
