I graduated from georgetown this past spring and have been a paralegal for the past 6 mths. Cant take it anymore...attempting a career switch to trading. Interviewed w/ millenium in nyc and it seemed kind of sketchy. The office was a room that probably fit only 20 traders or so and they asked me to contribute 3-5 g's. Is this commonplace? Also, do I ever see this initial contribution again or I am i flushing it down the toilet. Can anyone recommend any legitamate places to trade. Thanks for any words of advice.
