Hi Guys, I have just completed my Master's in Financial Engineering from an Ivy league school in US. My undergrad in from the best engineering institute in India (completed eight years ago). I need your advice/suggestions on how to go about my job search. I am interested in trading (algo trading) or structuring/quant modeling kind of jobs. I have seven years of IT experience (developing risk management and wealth mgmt applications) at one of the top four investment banks. I joined Master's for a career change as I think I can do well in those areas. Right now, I am not able to land an interview. I think my past experience is acting against me. I want your opinion on: a) If you see a resume of financial engineer with seven years of IT experience (prior to MS), would you guys consider it for trading or structuring/quant modeling role? b) I have cleared the numerical tests of the two prop trading firms but they did not consider me for interview as I was not "young" enough for them. Do you think age matters in prop trading? c) How should I approach my job search? Thanks in advance for your comments.
