Mortgage Trader, any good??

  1. My background is in mortgages (underwriting and originating). I'm now looking into possibly becoming a Mortgage Trader. I just interviewed for a spot and I think I will have an offer soon.

    For someone with no direct experience as a trader, starting out as a junior trader for the company, what should my salary expectations be? This will be with a major financial services firm. My beginning duties will be allocations, position reports, ad-hoc reports, confirm trades, etc. for the trading desk.

    Thank you
  2. thanks for all the private messages on this topic, great info
  3. Take what you can get, not what you want. Don't wait too long for the "perfect dream job" to magically appear.
