Meet JPMorgan’s Newest Summer Intern
10:00 am, June 25th | by Amy Tennery
Her name is Xenia Tchoumitcheva, and according to reports she is signed with Elite Model Management and has done commercials for Audi, Burger King and Casino Lugano. Oh, right, and she was also the 1st runner up for Miss Switzerland in 2006.
It would be easy (i.e. a sign of jealousy) for one to assume she got this choice internship through some combination of her celebrity, connections and, umm, other attributes. Not that I would ever make assumptions like that. Of course, you (i.e. me) would be dead wrong if you were to, hypothetically speaking, make snap judgments about her qualifications for the internship. In fact, this entirely hypothetical person would probably feel like a complete ass after seeing her resume. Sigh.
Let’s see — according to her professional profile, she’s fluent in five languages (Italian, Russian, English, German and French) and has “interned at several financial institutions,” including Merrill Lynch and the Duet Group, a London-based hedge fund. Oh. Also, she has a degree in economics from “university” (although it doesn’t say what university, nor could we find her alma mater anywhere else online, so take that as you may).
Now… where’s her tell-all blog?
