I wanted to get some feedback on my chances of become a trader (any desk)? Here's my scoop
-graduated in mechanical engineering '09, 3.5+
-few internships in rocket science, NASA, etc
- ops with FX (supported their FX sales)
-currently a consultant and working with banks/insurers in investment management, ops
-planning for grad school in 2 yrs (MBA and/or MS in Fin Eng)
What are my chances? What can I do now, for grad school, afterwards? any desks I'd be better at in particular? Will the masters degree be able to slingshot into S&T?
I'm wondering about electronic trading with a. maybe with my background, this would be a good fit?
also, for grad school I'm looking to Columbia, MIT (Sloan), or NYU (Stern). any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.
