I have been day trading full time for the past 4 years, and finally deciding to move on from it as I wasn't able to become consistent. I hope to come back to it at some point, but right now I just need a steady income. I know that I have skills that are relevant to employers. I am looking for a career as a stockbroker or financial advisor - I still want to be involved with the markets. First I have to get the resume finished. I have to explain what I've been doing, and try to come off as someone who is a skilled professional with potential to be an indispensible employee. I don't think I deserve to be considered "unemployable" because I took a shot at a career that didn't work out. I can't be the only trader who quit to do something else... If anyone has any advice - for the resume, cover letter, interviews etc, I would sure appreciate it. And if you've been in the same situation, please tell your story. Thank you all in advance for your help.
