How is Financial Software Development different from Application Software Development
I recently's career site to see what kind of job's do they have for Software Developers, I saw that they list their Software Development Jobs under the title Financial Software Developer. How is traditional/Application Software Development different from Financial Software Development?
I'm interested in working for financial institutions once I finish my Masters Degree in Software Engineering, what do they look for in Software Developers. I have 1.5 years of experience in my field and I'm doing my masters now, but it's not from one of the target universities. Do they consider students from other universities.
What should I do which would make a difference for me?
