First off, I'm currently employed at a hedge fund, in the tech group. The firm isn't doing too well right now, and from what I've seen with the firm's PnL and their historical returns, it looks like this year's bonus will be extremely small, and since I'm planning on moving to Manhattan within the next few months and possibly incurring some debt in the process, having no or a small bonus at year end is NOT OK, so I've decided it's time to move on. My target is to have a job in the city, doing equity derivative research or trading. A job in greenwich, ct is also OK. Another position in tech would be fine with me, though being on the trading side of it is preferable. I have a few questions, which hopefully some people can give me some insight on. 1. I don't want my current employer to know I'm hunting for a new job, since I may stay with them if the PnL turns around, in a big way (Since the MAIN reason I want a new job is the fact that I don't think I'm going to get a sufficient bonus at year end). The job market is also tough right now, so it may be difficult to find a new job, and as such, I don't want to hurt my relationships w/ my current job. What is the best way of preventing my current employer from knowing I'm job hunting? 2. My current experience is 1 year of working at a hedge fund (I just graduated last May). Salary requirement is 75K + benefits + bonus (At least 25K). Long hours are acceptable, I currently work 55 hours a week. Is this reasonable? Current salary is 70 + benefits + bonus (I was anticipating around a 30K bonus this year, but that looks like it won't happen now). 3. I have an internship that's irrelevant to the position I'm seeking, should I leave it on my resume? I'm thinking I should since otherwise the ONLY job experience I have is my current job. I think showing an internship would help. 4. My objective line is "An equity derivatives research or trading position". Is this good?
