QuoteOriginally posted by: katastrofaQuoteOriginally posted by: closduboisSuppose a candidate didn't do so hot at a prop desk and had to find another job. What should he put on his resume?1. Be honest and say you lost money. Sounds like an awful idea.2. Cherry-pick your experience and say "made 200k on 600k haircut over a 6month period" (and leave out the bit about losing 1mm the next month)3. Don't list anything related to PnL -- but then what the hell were you doing as a trader?200k on 600k and then 1mm loss?4. If you consistently made money over a long period of time and then a single market move took you down, it might be the story worth being told.5. Blame it on your company (no limits, regulations, etc.) It's not a perfect explanation, but maybe the correct one?6. "I was young. We make mistakes."7. If none of the above sticks to you (and "mm" means what I think it means), would you consider having a certain tattoo done?Mostly 5 and 6, and maybe 4 depending on the definition of "long period of time"Looking back, it was pretty unintelligent to be long vol towards the middle of '09, but many options MMs found themselves in that position.So, #2 for the bullet point on the CV?
