    Thanks I just emailed the contact. Hope to hear from her. Does the firm offer any trading positions?
  3. thn, I believe so, but they usually bring people on in other capacities first, e.g., they'll hire a smart office manager, and if he works out, they'll start throwing him options books.

    So, I'm sure if you work out in this capacity, there's no reason why you couldn't start trading with them. They're a pretty heady group, as I understand it.

  4. Where have you worked?
  5. So did you guys hear anything?
  6. BTW, regarding education, the degree can be in finance, computer science, or 'a related field.'
