. Just wonder if anyone on here has relevant experience in the financial markets with some of the larger trading firms to offer some career and education advice; My son, who is 15 and still at high school is extremely interested in a career in the financial markets, specifically trading. He follows the market news on CNBC, Bloomberg and the FT daily and has done so for at least the last year and a half, he regularly paper trades, seems to know all the jargon and wants to be the next Warren Soros! In short, he seems genuinely interested. I know trading is a harsh business to be in and few are successful but if it is something he enjoys, I would like to encourage him as much as possible. My feeling is, in his early career at least, he should aim for a position with a large and reputable financial company to learn as much as possible. With that in mind, what sort of educational and general experience path should he be looking at from this point on? Which degree courses and grade and from which universities would be most suitable and expected by an employer? Work experiences and internships. And even before that, what qualifications from high school, GCSE & A Level, should he be concentrating on. In short, what would be the ideal resume ? Many thanks, .
