Hi, I am going to graduate from a top undergrad business program in December. I worked at a hedge fund in Boston last summer as an analyst and I am currently seeking a buy side role in Boston. I have been following the stock market as a personal interest for years and I think prop trading would be really fun. I have a couple questions that I would really appreciate some responses to: 1) Is it worth taking a chance on prop trading right out of school? I don't know if trading would really show future employers that I have gained skills since school. Should I just go for a typical buy side career path and start as an analyst? Has anyone else faced this decision? 2) What are some prop trading firms (or desks) in the Boston area, or how could I find some? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
