As I'm sure most of you are familiar with Steve Cohen and Point72; I recently watched a clip of Doug Haynes talking about the selection process for their Point72 Academy. He explained that they looked for candidates with grit, people who have held tough jobs. After hearing this, I thought back on my previous experience. I worked a construction job for 4-5 years while in high school. It was a mentally/physically draining job that definitely tested me. While the job sucked, I'm glad I went through the experience. So my question to you is; What's the most mentally/physically demanding job you've held and did that job end up being beneficial? Was it your stint as an analyst or have you ever held some sort of "roll up the sleeves" job?
