A friend of mine is choosing between two offers: a brand-name insurance company and a high frequencyfirm. She wants to do trading in the future. I suggested her to go for the firm since it's trading, and the job should be more interesting. She's concerned that because it's really a no-name firm, it might not appear to be as good as the insurance company (where she will do capital management).
I asked a couple of my friends and nearly all of them said go for the HFT firm because you definitely learn more on that job.
I would love to hear your opinion on this.
