My past experiences are underwhelming. I thought that once I become experienced and proven in quant dev domain, things will be easier and I could move from one job to another. Wrong!
- Barclays? helped me get into OC since OC interviewers are interested in how things are done in Barclays. Didn’t really help me go anywhere else
- Stirt? helped me a bit with Mac interview
- MSFM? didn’t help me get anywhere, partly because I didn’t try.
OC/Stirt/Mac gave me no insight no breakthrough in my understanding no thick->thin->thick
The number of quant dev positions is much fewer than in market data!
