hi guys: for a kid i know and NOT me. he is a college sophomore. very smart, trades VXX and other etfs. goes to a top 10 undergrad, and generally a nice and fun kid. he wants to trade as a career--i've recc. that he look for internships at the larger funds, try to start a small one on his own (f0r track record), network via his school's Grad Bschool (top 5 in country). what else could a young man like him do to ensure that he gets into trading. and also: he is not a quant. should he pickup some programming? all help would be great. please keep flaming to a minimum!
