  1. Does anyone have any color on what Cargill is looking for in trader trainees?

    Same numerical stuff as elsewhere?
  2. depends where you apply at. Had a friend of mine go in there right out of high school. It takes a long time, and you get "stuck" there for a while, but he said it was worth all of the effort, they really do teach you to trade the grains. That was 5-6 years ago though...not sure if they've gotten more stringent, but if you are willing and have a basic knowledge of math, etc, you should be fine. Question though...are you appying to be a local marketer, like either one of their customer "farm marketers" or a terminal supervisory type role? or are you trying to get in at the big office hedging grains?
  3. They are recruiting MBAs for a Trader Trainee position. Might just be for newly-made MBAs, not sure. Training lasts a year.
  4. oh...sounds like a job up at the home office then...not sure of how to get in the door directly there...buddy of mine worked his way up through the ranks...

    Looking for more info on this as well in terms of what a job there is like and what value it has in terms of how other desks perceive Cargill traders.
