Re: Looking for a partner for my Quant project

" quant analyst" is quite generic. How was the position described in the job ad? Can't you try to guess from it? BTW you probably discussed with some HH or anyone else to land that job interview. Why didn't you ask her/him hints on what would follow? You applied for a job in a field you explain havi...
