Just finished my internship at a BB and was offered a spot on their equity derivs trading team. Although I'm really excited for the opportunity, I've struggled with getting a better picture of what the future looks like for a derivs trader. I tried asking people during the internship but didn't want to be so blunt as to put them in a position where they had to tell me if there is still a career to be made.
To give some background, I'm non-target and don't program (at all). I just hustled my way through the internship and they liked me enough to give me an offer.
So, is there a future in equity derivs trading for someone like myself? I've been thinking of leveraging the offer to get into IB or something with better prospects/exit opps.
