    I have realised that I wanted to do trading after an engineering degree. I did an intersnship last summer at a renowned IB, but I wasn't offered a full time position. I have tried going for the 2007 graduate positions, but I have had no luck after numerous interviews I have got an offer from ING to do structured finance, and I have a final round interview with ICAP to do voice broking.

    I just wondered what working in broking is like, if it would be easy to get into trading after doing broking for say a year, and if there is any chance of moving into trading after doing structured finance for say 1-2 years.

    I am going travelling till summer very soon, so I was thinking of trying again when I get back and applying directly for a trading position. What would be my chances, I have a 1st class degree from a good uni and an internship?
