Alternative Data Research Exit Opportunities
I'm currently workingas a data scientist where I help equity researchers incorporate alternative data into their research. I'm doing part-time grad school in statistics on the side from a top 10 school. I've been debating moving to the something a little more challenging and for better compensation. Some opportunities that look like a good fit for me are a quantamental analyst, L/S data scientist / sector data analyst at a HF (think , Point72, etc).
If I were to move from BB to one of these positions at a HF, how many years of experience is ideal before I should try to transition (fyi I'm a little more than one year out of undergrad)? Is it worth while getting aafter my masters? Not sure where to go next and any advice is much appreciated.
