Transitioning from firm to firm...

  1. Ideally, I tried to get into a shop which has a salary and good training, but I did not have much luck securing a position.

    Now I am looking at shops with no salary and in most cases a lesser reputation. Also, from what I have seen, the shops which offer salary seem to have a longer training period than those that do not. And that is important to me, as a new grad and being fairly new to trading.

    If I could get a job at one of these places I am hoping I can make money and all works well for everyone. But if it doesn't work out after a few months, would having the experience on my resume help get me into better shops? Or would it not make a difference?

    I ask this because if not, I may be more inclined to just get any salaried job, save my $$ and open up a retail acct in a few years (or go out on my own). But if the experience will help, I may go that route.

    Thanks for the advice
