Engaging His Resources: Senior Tyler Courter Ready for Career in Finance

12/18/2012

Tyler Courter had his career in sights from the beginning. He says he has been actively job searching since his freshman year at Stevens, utilizing the Office of Career Development (OCD) since day one. From workshops to career fairs to personalized mock interviews, Tyler felt well prepared to interview with and secure a career. All of his work and engagement the OCD paid off: Tyler Courter will be joining JPMorgan Chase as a full-time employee after graduation.

Tyler had the opportunity to work for JPMorgan Chase through the Stevens internship program. This gave him an opportunity to see how he liked both the financial world and the company.

"I accepted the position with JPMorgan Chase as an operations analyst in the Private Bank, Wealth Management division, because it's a fantastic company and I truly enjoyed my internship this past summer. I will be in a two-year rotational program that allows you to test out three different job areas to define your strengths and interests,” Tyler states.

Business & Technology major with a concentration in Finance, Tyler credits Professor George Calhoun’s classes with preparing him to work in the financial markets. Another internship he enjoyed over the summer after his sophomore year was working with Professor Don Lombardi through the Technogenesis Summer Scholars program (now the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Scholars program), managing social media for the PG Chambers School. His extracurriculars included being a four-year member of Stevens’ varsity baseball team.

Though he is focused on growing and being successful at JPMorgan Chase, Tyler would like to pursue his Master’s degree in the future.

He offers this advice: “Future students should utilize the career development services at Stevens. They are continually ranked among the top 20 in the country and they prepare you so well for the interviewing process with their workshops and mock interviews. Sign up for Castle Point Careers (Stevens’ online job database) and they will guide you toward where you want to go!”
