Hi All, I'm currently working in IT but I would like to change career and get into finance. Although I'm not a mathematician, I have a deep knowledge of mathematics (phd in engineering). I would like to have some tips about how to prepare my CV for screening in a financial firm (for a position as trader or quant analyst). In particular, I'd like to have some references I need to look at to grasp the fundamental concepts of etrading, algorithmic trading and trading more generally. Other questions include whether CFA may be useful or not in my case, and what can I do to make my CV more attractive for a recruiter.
