Be careful you are not getting into anything illegal, like a boiler room scam, you could end up in prison.

What is the company? "Sales Trader" can be a very varied role depending on where you are. So companies will call you a sales trader when it involves no trading whatsoever and is purely a cold calling role.

Sales trader isn't the best title for a trading job... it definitely carries negative weight with large cap Hedge Funds too, which is where the bigger paydays are right now if you're going institutional.

Having said that, it isn't entirely disliked by banks...

Make sure you're getting into something that's not a blemish. If this is a position at a big name then it may be fine in terms of progression.
