Hey, I will be graduating from UC Davis in June and am really passionate about the financial industry, equity trading in particular. I will complete my internship program at Morgan Stanley in June as well but am somewhat lost as to what positions I should be applying for. I have considered working at prop trading firms, however the ones that pay salary are mostly located in New York and Chicago, which I could not afford to live in at the moment. I would love to work at an investment bank but am afraid that there aren't many appropriate entry-level positions. What do you guys recommend? My dream is to become a professional trader and get a CMT but for some reason many professionals told me that there is no future in it. I would like to hear your thoughts and recommendations about good career starters that would set me on the right path. Thank you in advance!
