This is a discussion on Being a stockbroker I'm currently in a position as Community Links Members List. Mar 18, , 1: I'm currently in a position as a finance officer, But I would like to step it up a gear and go into trading fulltime!
So I can push my knowledge further. As I can only teach myself so much. I don't mind cold calling as we all have to start somewhere and to be honest I don't care about the hours or money all I want is the experience. So I was wondering how hard is it to become a trainee stock broker in the city London? Ask yourself do you want to work in a client based corporate type environment?
A lot of it is down to personality type too - some people would HATE to be sat at a computer whatever the salary , not talking to anyone and some people thrive in a more customer focused type environment Mar 18, , 2: Cheers, To be honest I don't mind the environment, At the moment I work sat in front of the PC all day and a very quiet office!
Personality like to be in the heart of all the noise and panic! Communicating with a bunch of clients but I'm just looking to get my first foot in the door even if it is some boring paper work for a few years after this I hope I would have the ability to move in further in the right direction. I can honestly work in both type of environments. I know I can't be to picky. Mar 19, , I forgot to ask If I'm a stock broker how hard is it to move into a traders position as I don't want to be a sales man all my life?
Remember I don't have a mathimatic degree or any other degree's on that matter which alot of companys ask for a "Graduate" to be honest I'm pretty shocked how many want graduates! I could stay in my current job for which makes life so much more harder! So the question is where do I start.
