Internship in hedge funds.

Subscribe

I am currently in the last year at school(17 years old). I live in Eastern European country , studying mathematics at a very high level (participating in math Olympiads , studying calculus with "Calculus A Complete Course" , Stock market and principles of economics). I want to take the internship in hedge funds in USA , Canada or UK, about in 3-4 years (when I will be studying Economics at the University in my country) , of course I will need visa sponsorship. What else can I be doing to increase my chances at hedge funds ,What should I do to be a good candidate for the internship, What skills should I learn ?

It be tough here in the US right now because many aren't giving sponsorships, and that's without the competition but I'm sure in the UK it would be much easier with the information from the first post.

Whatever you are be the best version you can

In mother Russia you don't intern at a hedge fund hedge fund intern you

Seriously though all the info above is good and the best shot you have is in the UK. Canada has a small HF presence and America has too much competition for you to break in without dual citizenship.

Also don't discount Russia, I hear being on Putin's payroll can be very profitable ;)
