I'm a 3rd year at a target in Canada with no finance experience. My past internship was as a Bus Analyst at a well-known niche tech firm and besides that I just have some campus involvement stuff.

One activity I've spent a lot of time on is doing analytics consulting of sorts for reesearchers at my school. Ive done sentiment analysis on big data, lots of predictive modelling (regressions, classification, association rules) and its been a great experience learning wise. This isn't really related to S&T besides the fact that it shows im fairly quantitative... I want to aim for structured products desk or electronic trading. Do you think including this independent consulting venture is worth it or is it too specific to analytics?
