Just seen a couple of comments above, discussing the best way to enter the world of trading. I’m currently working within a role in finance but within the construction industry at a pretty high level, I also have a degree in it.
Over the last year or so I’ve decided enough is enough and before I have any commitments i.e. kids etc, it is time to pursuit a career within an industry I have a real interest in which is Investment. In preparation for my career change I have recently studied for an Investment related qualification which I have now passed, and at the same time giving me a little insight it a number of roles within Investment. On this information, I’ve obviously looked at advertised jobs etc. I have recently been invited to a couple of Graduate Trader courses with Futex and Schenider which I’m very excited about but I just wondered if anyone had any further comment on them ?
From what I can gather both run similar programmes which I interoperate to me 3 months training, and then after the that if your any good or show real potential you get offered a position i.e. this correct ?
Also money is not my attraction to this position, if this was the care I would stay where I am at the moment but can any one indicate how much a person is likely to earn within early stages in Trader career? Little money wouldn’t put me off, I just would like some indication which I’m sure you can understand as I have a number of financial commitments I would have to support somehow whilst also living in London? (I currently live 200 miles from London so the commuting is not poss!)
Your help is greatly appreciated!
