For someone that wanted to develop a long term career on Wall Street as a Trader, would it be beneficial to maybe get your foot in the door at a proprietary firm? Work your way up as you gain experience?
A lot of the proprietary firms seem to deal in day, are the skill sets you learn able to be transferred if you were trying to get a position at maybe with higher volume taking long term positions?
Any insight would be very helpful seeing as how I am only a college student. Thanks.
