Hiring someone relatively new?

    Will any trading firm hire someone who is relatively new to trading with virtually no money of there own. Just curious, little confused to what Bright Trading and others are all about.
    Thanks in advance.
  2. I think the better question is WHY anyone would hire someone relatively new with virtually no money to bring to the table.

    If learning about the market is your goal and you haven't much to offer by way of experience or bankroll, you may as well try to finagle your way into a decent institutional/hedge fund and become someone's assistant's assistant until he/she deems you worthy enough to take you under his wing. Your chances of getting a job through this route are actually higher than your chances of learning about the market at a prop house. If you rather learn how to churn and generate tickets while perhaps making a bit of profit from market noise on the side, then by all means, go to Bright/Worldco :)

    Who do you think would be better prepared to become a chef: a busboy at Le Circe or the asst. manager at the local Burger King -- get my drift? Good luck!
