There is an electric company at my school doing OCR for some positions. I'm vaguely interested in trading, but I would like to specifically know more about power trading. I know for oil trading positions at the super majors you have to work as a scheduler before you can trade and I was wondering if there is a similar process at power companies.
The roles that are being recruited for are: rates analyst and power settlements analyst. From talking to a professor, settlements analyst sounds like an accounting role. I know nothing about the other position and an internet search has provided contradictory information.
If I were to get an internship and possible employment with this company, would any of these two positions allow me to transition into a trading role?
