Getting a job as a buyside analyst

  1. I've been working for a prop firm for 4 years now. I think I'm about ready to move on. There aren't a lot of positions open where I am and I don't really want to move. I came across 2 buyside analyst positions that I want to apply for. They both are asking for experienced analysts. I'm sure I can do either one, I'm just not sure how to show that what I've done with trading equates with analyst type work. Anyone have any advise? I've worked with about every strategy for equity trading.

    What does a trader do that is similar to an analyst?
  2. I'm not worried about that so much as how do I get to the interview. Neither list a telephone number. Just apply through a jobsite
