Correlation between top degrees and a career in commodities
I understand that commodities trading is a very hard sector to get into but I am not sure how this is demonstrated in terms of college recruiting.
Having done some research on linkedin (amongst others), I don't get that these shops are filled with students from targets, with amazing resumes and so on. Comparing to areas like PE, BBs, MBB and so on, which are full of people with ivy/equivalent degrees, the commodities houses seem to only have very few such candidates (and are much more diverse in terms of non-targets).
To be clear, I am not suggesting that you are only a worthy candidate if you've gone to that kinda school or anything like that.
I simply want to get why this sector doesn't seem to be popular amongst targets or why the big players don't recruit that heavily from targets.
