Really looking to make a career change from Big4 M&A due diligence into trading (went from 2 years in audit and have been in FDD for just over a year). I managed to land an interview for Real Time Power Trading, but they said no due to lack of energy experience. I'm having trouble getting anyone to give me a shot, so I was thinking of offering to work for free on weekends and some evenings.
I want to do this without sounding too desperate, but I can't get anyone in the industry to take me seriously as a career changer. I wouldn't mind entering trades and doing other admin work to learn a bit about the job as real time traders work around the clock.
Any thoughts on this? I was thinking of reaching out the company that interviewed me and possibly a couple other companies.
