Real time energy trader

  1. Has anyone ever worked as a real time energy trader? I’m going to start applying to some positions that open up near me but I don’t have any experience with energy trading. I have a BSEE and have been trading my own account for about 3 years, but that’s the only relevant experience I have. Another thing is that I can’t seem to find much on what the day to day operations of this job is. From what I can find out, you work 12 hour shifts, nights, weekends, and holidays. I also heard that because of the hours that these positions usually have a high turn over rate.

    I’m just wondering if this is a good foot in the door job to get into energy trading.
