Landed a position at Glencore straight out of Uni - Now how do I become a trader?
Hey guys I'm new to this forum. After terribly failing at my interview with Trafigura for their 'New Grad' program (they asked some ridiculous questions) I decided to not give up and eventually got an interview with Glencore. The role I secured is a "Trading Assistant" for their copper department. I was wondering now, what's the best way to move up the ladder and secure a trader role (with a P&L attached to me) or if not that, what would the next best position be to aim for? I have heard a scheduler role is pretty good?. I would appreciate everyone's insight on this as many of my relatives/friends have no clue about physicalhouses and their career paths.. almost seems like the majority of people are clueless when it comes to commodity trading..
