To be honest, the whole ballgame for getting into trading is now much harder. Without the option of trading in banks, one can only turn to hedge funds, mutual funds or asset management firms like Fidelity Investments. But the fact remains that these firms are more competitive to get into than banks and many similar firms prefer someone with working experience in banks. This in turn creates a scenario where the undergraduate could be faced with too much choices.
After a tour in the career fair, I am now left more confused rather than more clear. I always wanted to do trading, but the fact is, I look towards the lifestyle of sales. Being a hedge fund manager would give me the best of both worlds. I do not even know what to apply for in my second year summer break. I am honestly quite tired, trying to juggle work, study, family. The road ahead is unclear but one has to keep moving forward regardless.
