now that your working there could you let me know what their reaction is to people coming in from non trading / finance backgrounds, and a degree that is not related to the finance world.

Cant answer your qsn Pi3141 sorry.

Most people are from a finance background. I think it may be difficult to get the inital interview if not from such a background, only because of the number of applications received. I think they understand that being a successful trader isnt really dependent on your level of financial knowlege before joining the firm. There is an extensive training period to get everyone upto speed.

Hi there,

I've recently been invited to test and interview with MET and was wondering if you could answer a few questions from your experience.

I'm assuming the numerical test is the generic 'trader test' - rapid mental maths style questions?

With regard to the interview, will I need to do some brushing up on futures/general technical aspects of the role, or is it focused on learning about me and how I cope with pressure?

BSc Mathematics and just finished an MSc Financial Management.

In terms of relevant work experience, none beyond a week in Private Equity Ops and some brief daytrading of my own.

I've never really met many traders except myself, but something tells me, they're awesome

They're not awesome by any stretch....just regular
guys and girls trying to make a living independently. Nothing separates them from a shop owner, stall holder, car salesman etc, other than the fact that it is sold as a glamorous job by the media. The fact is very few make a decent living out of it, and by that I mean making upwards of £75K. For the record, I didn't make it trading and feel no shame or bitterness in it. But does that make the ones that do awesome? I'd say not. Does it mean they've got great discipline and money management skills? Yes. To make it as a trader is an awesome accomplishment and I tip my hat to anybody that has, but as a person, all they are is a successful businessman/woman. No more, no less.
