2012-10-04 16:11:29 - Golden Networking brings the World’s Most Influential High-Frequency Trading Conference Series, High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2012, now in Chicago, October 9, and London, December 12 (http://www.High-Frequency-Trading-Conference.com)
(October 3, 2012, New York) Forbes’ Susan Adams had good news for the significant proportion of undergraduate and graduate population who chose alternative investments: Hedge funds and high-frequency trading are indeed hiring right now. How to get to know where to go? The key is networking at High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2012, ( www.High-Frequency-Trading-Conference.com), this time in two of the world’s most important financial centers Chicago and London.
The first step in considering an alternative investment job is to think long and hard about whether your personality is suited to the life of the quant. The competition to keep the edge and to outperform is very high. Consider not only whether you truly thrive under pressure but also whether you're
good at synthesizing and evaluating a lot, really a lot, of data quickly.
Leverage whatever contacts you have. Because hedge funds and high-frequency trading shops are unregulated and tend to keep their business under wraps, they don't hold events that are open to the public. You can't just walk into a hedge fund door and sign up.
If you're ready to make the leap, get ready to be aggressive about networking, says Roy Cohen, a career and executive coach and author of The Wall Street Professional's Survival Guide. Hedge fund types have short attention spans, and they are not very comfortable networking" he observes. That means you have to push hard yourself and avoid taking rejection personally.
