I wanted some thoughts on a couple questions I have, but first a little background info. I am just starting university at a non target state school majoring in finance (maybe adding a double major of mathematics). I have a goal of working on the buy side out of undergrad (hedge fund,pe,am) eventually becoming a portfolio manager. I currently aim to research at least 50 stocks a week. I also have beenmy own small account for about 9 years with a pretty decent trading strategy. (I am 22). I have been working for a IT company since graduation of high school.
How will being 25-26 effect the recruiting? Do they look at age as a hinderence?
I am currently working on a tech start up, how can I implement entrepreneurial pursuits into my resume? Is it looked at in a positive light?
What else (besides internship experience) can I do to increase my chances given the circumstance?
Thank you for those that reply.
