  1. I'll let you guys know when the interview is and how it goes.

    Why do i have the strangest feeling that I'll be walking into a boardroom like the one on Donald Trump's apprentice while Jim Cramer appears out of nowhere and conducts the interview.

  2. Just curious, what type of education do you have? What school?

    Good luck...:)

  3. Aah, what I was for many years, before coming to my senses... You'd better curl up with Dr. Crack, then. In a rush? score it instantly, same price.

  6. Indeed. So far the entire process has been very vague. Is that normal?

  9. nowadays man programmers are called quant analysts. If you are asked many java questions, you will likely be a programmer.

  10. First off, good luck! Please tell me when you hear from them :)

    Just curious, what does the position of Quantitative Analyst do? I thought you would have to have some type of math or programming education? But again, I am pretty green when it comes to hedgies :)
