I'm often concerned about my peers in the Sales & Trading career track. While many of them seem to think they will be the next big HF PM and such (and I am certain that a few of them will be) I have a hunch that the vast majority of them will be either unemployed within a couple of years or cut at a mid-level management role, either from poor performance, a bad mistake, and/or automation, and then have nowhere to go.
Does anyone have any insights on what happens to those who go into trading out of undergrad say 10-20 years out? Seems like a dead end for most since they would have built little to no transferable skills to enable them to change careers after they get fired
