these firms are recruiting from my school Jane Street Capital, LLC Group One Trading, L.P. Chopper Trading WH Trading, LLC Wolverine Trading LLC QVT Financial LP - hedge fundish? Gray Whale Capital - little information on the website any advice or anything i should know about these firms? according to the school recruiting website gray whale is a prop firm but their website mentions almost nothing about it. i am not exactly a new/unexperienced trader but would start out as one, just to get the whole "package" of their training program. i would like a prop firm that doesn't require an upfront or very little for their training - cuz from this website i heard that firms that charge a lot have little confidence in their system, etc etc. i'm a senior at a top 5 finance biz school in the nation. i thought about applying for banks and try to get in their sales and trading division but they said they were looking for someone far more experienced(in terms of years). i m looking into prop firms cuz of the upside and immediate hands on trading as well as the education. i would say the prop firm route is a risky one considering most of my peers would be getting a stable pay while my financial future still lays on a balance. well my parents and peers are split on the extremes when it comes to this decision if anyone could provide some advice or inputs on these firms it would be greatly appreciated.
