HELP: Breaking into HF

Hey guys,

I need your advice on breaking into HF. Any advice will be helpful.

After graduating from a good biz school, I've have been trading on my own, and in the short time horizon of my 3 years of trading, I managed to increase my personal savings, $50K to $300K. I also paid for all of my living expenses out of the portfolio, so it should have been more. I reached this by playing with super risky, soon to expire options play. Given this roller coaster market condition, I decided to quit a winner and learn more by working at trading firms or HF.

How can I break into HF as an analyst?

Thank you.

I started my own fund. With a audited track record, fund raising is possible.
