Career advice needed - Interdealer broking as a Grad?
Long time lurker, first time poster.
Anyways I am a student and I am about to finish my final semester.
News headline have stated that the job market in my country will face a much greater squeeze in 2013 and are expected to get "worse"
Recently I sent my application for an interdealing company for a Grad position in Electronic broking and have an interview coming up. At first I wasn't sure what sort of "responsibilities" it would entail working there but upon reading around forums and thus "ideal candidates" should be outgoing etc etc, I def realize that this area is not for me.
I am a self confessed nerd who likes to sit infront of the screen analysing data that flows to my desk and thats about it.
However, given the condition of my country economy, my mates said to me that i need to compromise, that is, "take what is given to me". Hence, suppose i turn down the offer from the IDB, there is a chance I might not find another job again. But i know that working in IDB there are NO EXIT OPPS, i will learn nothing on the job (from what I read). Is this true?
Should I take up the job once they offer it to me?
