Seeking experience in industry

Discussion in 'Prop Firms' started by fullperson, Mar 6, 2011.

  1. Hi everyone, I am currently a sophomore college student and I am looking for internships and job opportunities. I am sorry if my post is a bit off topic, but I am not sure where to post. My quant skills are ok-ish. Despite being a sophomore, I am already in graduate level time series analysis.

    I am not looking for positions in directional trading. My goal is to become a professional dealer/ market maker. I understand the latter is made up of specialists (which I will not be able to enter without prior track record).

    Can anyone suggest a firm or a contact where I can develop a track record or learn the trade? I primarily work with currencies, but I am exploring options as well. I prefer an environment where there are NO RIGID MODELS FOR LEARNING.

    I am currently reading through the ACI dealing handbook, and I plan on passing the test by graduation.
