CQF Graduates in NY have some tough competition in the job market

August 23rd, 2013, 3:13 pm

Taking a look at the different MS Quant programs in NY, The NYU-Courant MS Math in Finance program seems the most impressive with a teaching staff the reads like a who's who in Quant Finance. Here are some resumes from NYU 2013 graduates. http://math.nyu.edu/financial_mathemati ... k_2013.pdf What do you guys think of these resumes?

They also all live in Jersey City. Not sure what it is indicative of though, maybe they like living close to the huge Goldman tower.

The apartments there don't have any strict rules. Rent is high, but there is no restriction on the number of people staying in a unit. You can enter any building, the doorman will not ask you for any id. You can rent a two bedroom, you live in one and rent the other room for $100/day.

Now I know why Chinatown is expanding.Americans do not like programming because it is full of IndiansAmericans do not like math because it is full of asiansWhat do American's like - Law?? An average lawyer even from a good school lives in poverty today. Ad World ? Poor pay. Medicine? So far so good but Malpractice Insurance is killing it. And most our Indian/Chinese kids are flooding it too. Government?? No money to boast about. Sales?? Recruiters are like that. Most are just used car salesman. And the profession is choke full of White's. Lets stop kidding ourselves. When we say Americans we mean White. You know what, I don't give a shit what American's are or are not going into. Most go into Liberal Arts anyways. It is a global world now. And it is time we started respecting the entire world instead of blindly asking what American's are going into.

It is going to benefit foreign countries. They are teaching them how to make money in US stock market. Why do they want to help foreign students and their economy. If the program is on Masters in Missile Technology and if only foreign students apply, will they still offer the program?

QuoteOriginally posted by: chocolatemoneySince when latex, put-call parity and school projects go on a CV?As a student or very recent graduate, school projects may add value to your resume by highlighting relevant areas of focus or in-depth study. I can't really come up with a defense for the other two, but Iwill note that that put-call parity is a useful property when thinking about options, and googling for images with key word "latex" yields interesting results.
