I am based in NYC and am a natural gas portfolio manager, trader and scheduler. I work at a utility and am looking to move to a hedge fund or energy company that has optionality in their physical positions. I just finished a second round interview with Citadel but haven't heard back about a third round. I've been looking into the usual funds and companies: CCI, Equinor, Millennium (financial gas), etc. I've been working with a few head hunters as well.
Any advice on an area I haven't considered? There are a lot of opportunities in Houston (Trafigura, etc.), but for the time being I'd like to stay in NYC. I know that limits my possibilities.
My background: Civil engineer undergrad, NYU MBA in Quantitative Finance. 2 years as a natural gas portfolio manager/trader/scheduler, 2 years as a natural gas physical asset evaluator, 2 year prior to that as a nuclear design engineer.
Thank you for any help you can provide.
