I don't know shit about finance, only the very basics. We get mentored for the first few months

>>13342673
No experience, I've got a bit of interest in stocks but nothing major really, just know the basics. I've got a bachelors in computer science and computation (think theoretical computer science/maths)

$25k, university fees in my country aren't bad

>>13342771
No master degree? For how many jobs did you apply before you got the job? Big bank? Or what kind of company?
>>
>>13342238
Currently studying Masters degree mathematics (the pure thing) with CS Minor taking numerical Finance courses in math Major. Otherwise just specialised in Crypto and comvinatorics.

My Grades are shit though and have no internships so far. But i too want big Bucks for Meme lines.


Can I make it?
>>
>>13342873
Applied for probably about 10, I used most of them as practice for the tests they give you though and only did well on the last couple

>>13342893
My grades are pretty bad, equivalent to a B. I had an internship as a technology analyst at the biggest bank in my country which I think gets me at least interviews for most places

>>13342938
What do these tests look like? Could you give us a quick rundown?
>>
>>13343008
Most of them are the “what shape comes next” style ones usually with another one for numerical reasoning where you’ll get some figures and have to draw some conclusions/numbers off it. If you google “SHL reasoning test” this is what most of them give you. There’s a few good sites that have practice questions as well, but you can only really practice so much

>>13342238
If you are capable of coming up with profitable trading algorithms, why would you work for anyone?
