I will be graduating this year and want to get in with a trading firm in Chicago. I will have a major in econ, minor in finance. I went to a lesser known university in Michigan and unfortunately my school didn't offer any courses focusing on derivatives, just a few chapters here in there in my finance classes. After I started researching trading as a career, I realized very quickly it was for me. I have the hunger and determination to learn and am eager to jump in with both feet. What I am looking for now is any quality advice I can get that could help me land a job, and or, shorten my learning curve, books to read, etc. I would greatly appreciate any helpful advice as I take the next step.
