    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...

    Q/A with Todd Fahey (Quant Headhunter)

    Answers: 1. You will absolutely be developing software if you expect / anticipate getting a sole as a quantitative strategist at any of the 'big' quant shops. Not to dissuade you - but it is a fact that you need to be capable of writing production-quality code. It's a very competitive...

    Q/A with Todd Fahey (Quant Headhunter)

    Sorry for the late reply. Been a bit busy of late. Here you go: 1. As a recruiter, the likelihood of my being able to help a 'fresh' MFM, MFE or MCF is a very low delta. Our clients pay us to find experienced candidates in the fields where they need help. They don't look to us to find someone...

    My overall view on quantitative finance remains the same - solid growth opportunities over the long-term. Electronic markets continue to evolve globally. As such, the quantitative finance area of capital amrkets, coupled with the appropriate technology and risk management systems, will continue...

    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...

    Q/A with Todd Fahey (Quant Headhunter)

    Legally, age cannot be deciding factor in a hiring decision. Does it happen? I can't say for certain. Personally, I could care less about a candidate's age. My only concern is that the candidate is well qualified and suited for the appropriate role. Hope this helps.

    Q/A with Todd Fahey (Quant Headhunter)

    Joe, In general, someone with a PhD (or any level of education in these fields, actually) in Computer Science or Computer Engineering is of interest to me. What exactly is your question? If your wondering about what kind of career path exists for you in finance, there are several possibilities...

    Q/A with Todd Fahey (Quant Headhunter)

    Answer: I would say that if you are smart, you should be able to pick up the concepts of finance (in a broad sense) rather quickly and be able to learn the concepts and structure of C++ (at least the basics of the syntax) rather quickly, as well. My best advice to you - read like there's no...

    Q/A with Todd Fahey (Quant Headhunter)

    Answer: Interesting question in that I was recently addressing the same question in the Nuclear Phynance forum. Effectively, an MFE from Stuart or De Paul (they have one now, too) are really only recognizable in Chicago. I know a couple of the professors at IIT and they're pretty good...

    Vadim, Here's my thoughts - and, you're welcome. Answer: I predict that the need for hiring in the quant market will continue to grow - and for much longer than 5 years. The number of people graduating at the BA / BS level in technical and mathematical disciplines has been declining over the...

    Q/A with Todd Fahey (Quant Headhunter)

    Answer: By switching careers, you would need to give me more info before I can even begin to make a recommendation. For example, if you're currently a software engineer for Microsoft or Sun Microsystems, I could certainly give some solid ideas and opinions. If you're working as an accountant for...

    Answer: While I don't dispute that NP and Wilmott tend to be a little "brash", if you will, I will say that if you just pay attention to the underlying content -and don't involve yourself in the verbal warfare that goes on - they have some great stuff for people just getting into the game. To be...

    Q/A with Todd Fahey (Quant Headhunter)

    Ok, let's get these answered: Answer: Your best bet of going to a recruiter (aside from them finding you, obviously) is to utilize your network. Find out who your friends/colleagues/peers have used and how that process was for them. Ask who was the most helpful, honest (a biggie and hard to...
