avirp, I'm a working professional having 8 yrs of c++ exp., working in front-office in IB; after meeting with Baruch students and professor, I decided to go for Baruch in Fall 2010 If I get a chance. I don't find any word to explain why after taking their demo class. Good luck !
Learning won't take more than 1 fullday for interview. Hands on is different topic although. As working in multithreading/c++ on unix for 7 years; suuggesting few tips.
1. Google it and try to write small samples creating threads; use join, mutex, conditional variables etc.
With your background, getting a job will be easier than for most people, but sadly that comes at a price that it's more likely to be ѕhit than for other people.
Would you please explain more on these please ? In context of what ? Thanks.
I forgot to mentione that I've 8 years of experinece in C++ and Unix and working for IB. But unfortunately not at right place. So thought this position would be helpful to get into quant side role in 2-3 years.
Any thought ?
