Hey everyone, new to WSO, and this is my first meaningful post.
I'm an engineering undergrad student in Montreal. Yeah... Engineering... Yet I'm always on the compter between classes checking up on my stocks and the markets in general.
All my friends keep asking me: '' Why are you in engineering, why don't you change programs and go into finance?''
My reply: '' Because I love to learn, and engineering taches me all kinds of things I wouldn't learn otherwise, whereas i am basically self-taught in the financial sector, and EVERY SINGLE DAY, I learn something new.''
Isn't life wonderful that way?
Anyways, for quite a while i was thinking about doing Prop. Trading, but stumbled onto IB not long ago. The more i read about it, the more I want to do it!
So i stared doing my DD and asked a ''high-up'' at(Royal Bank of Canada) if they were hiring students as analysts for summer 2011. In short, no, they are only looking for full-time analysts.
My question to you is, which firms hire for this position in Montreal? How does an engineering student go about doing things?
Thanks for your help,
TLDR; Montreal engineering student, looking for a summer job as an analyst. Who hires summer analysts?
