Looking for some career advise on switching from Front-office IT to Trading/Research.
A bit of background.
I'm currently at a big 4 macro HF in a Front-office role in NYC. My job is not typical IT but more of data science oriented stuff and not doing any IT work per se. I graduated from an Ivy with a CS degree and this is my first job (2 years in). I'm looking to move to a more finance related position - Trading or Research Analyst.
I'd like to know what are my best options:
- Try transferring internally (looks tough as all Research Analysts have significant experience and come from a BB after doing their stint)
- Goto a BB as a Trader (?)
- Goto a BB as a Sellside Analyst (?)
