    Would you take a job as an assistant to a Specialist on the floor of the AMEX?

    What are your thoughts? Is it worth doing or is the AMEX a dying exchange and therefore not worth pursuing?

    think about in terms of your own goals and if taking that job moves you closer or further from them.

    Depends on your age and where you want to go.

    If you are in your 20's and trying to get in the door to work for a trading firm, investment bank, etc. then, yeah, go for it.

    If you are 50+ and just want to learn the ropes of trading, there are probably better, less hecktic ways.
  7. I am looking for work. Any opening position other than trading related. Please PM me.
