I've been invited to meet the Director of FX sales @ the firm'sfloor on Monday. Since its fairly late in the recruitment cycle I'm not exactly looking for an internship at the firm this summer, however I do hope to leverage this into a junior year internship by setting a good impression. My interactions with traders so far have been quite fruitful, particularly (former) prop guys and traders/ PMs where actual risk taking is prevalent. I must admit that I do have some unwarranted contempt towards folks in sales, perhaps due to the conflict in personality traits or because most of them call themselves 'traders' when they've never put their balls on the line, hence I'm struggling to come up with questions. Here's what I got so far:
1) His background and experiences: Ask him how he got to where he is today.
2) Impact of electronic FX on the need for FX market makers.
3) Impact of the Volker Rule on.
4) Worthwhile university courses.
5) Career advice.
I would greatly appreciate other suggestions as I'm not quite convinced that these questions make the person's time worthwhile.
