    Q/A with Todd Fahey (Quant Headhunter)

    Could you give me an idea as to what you are looking to get in terms of information here? There are many ways to distinguish yourself, assuming you have the talent and skills to do so: Fulbright and Rhodes scholarships; Putnam rankings; innovations that have commercial viability; etc.

    Q/A with Todd Fahey (Quant Headhunter)

    I believe I get your point, but I think you may need a bit of education regarding roles and responsibilities. This is a 'generic' explanation, but it kinda looks like this: Quantitative modelers / researchers tend to be PhD's and tend to be wholly focused on the creation of new models and/or...

    Best answers I can give: 1. Contact your alumni relations and career center and see if they can give you contact info for Georgia Tech alumni in the quantitative finance profession. Globally. You never know where an opportunity may exist... 2. That question I can't help you with, I'm afraid...

    Q/A with Todd Fahey (Quant Headhunter)

    My overall view on quantitative finance remains the same - solid growth opportunities over the long-term. Electronic markets continue to evolve globally.

    Q/A with Todd Fahey (Quant Headhunter)

    Hi Yang. After a long hiatus from this site, Andy has persuaded me back into the fold. In terms of 'branding', I am of the belief that the top schools anywhere - Canada, Russia, India, etc. - are relatively common knowledge and on the scope of most headhunters at this point. Toronto is a...
