I killed it so hard in an interview for a hybrid MO-in Fixed Income Sales, that I got told by the VP for the area that I would get bored there, and that he wanted me in a more pure FO role. At first, I was disappointed that I didn't get a position there, but at the same time, this is an opportunity to do exactly what I want, which is pure S&T.
The VP invited me next week to "stay a couple of days at the floor to see if there is a match".
So my question is for people who are currently in S&T, when I go onto the floor next week, how do I make such a good impression that they would want me around?
Of course, asking intelligent questions and knowing the products relatively well is a given. But is it at all possible to add value when you are just shadowing them? Or should I just try to aim for getting along with them?
Thanks and silver bananas in advance.
