Future employment at a Hedge Fund

Discussion in 'Professional Trading' started by Kramer_Hedge_LA, Jun 9, 2008.

  1. Is the best route to working in a hedge fund as an analyst, trader, or even one of the managers to start as an analyst from the Buy-Side or the Sell-Side?

    I have reasearched that most people start with the sell-side so they can be more effective at a buy-side firm, post-training/experience.
    Is this reasearch right? And if so is there a way to start working for the buy-side right away and are there different credentials needed?

    As a side note, I am aware of the fact that an MBA or CFA will be required to bcome an assoicate of a hedge fund. The main point if it is asking how to get to that level when you start at the bottom?
