CQF Career placement

are there opportunities in India solely on the basis of CQF?
will it be enough for me to have a breakthrough in the world of quant finance? I am currently doing my B.Tech final year. I dont have any prior finance background
In India there aren't any good quant schools , so even a cqf could land someone a job in finance
 
I was already working as a trader while pursuing CQF so i did not take much help from career services. I really like the classes, content and extra videos of CQF . So on that regard its really worth the money and an excellent course. In India there aren't any good quant schools , so even a cqf could land someone a job in finance . Infact I had received couple of mails for interviewing with some quant firms in Delhi just 'coz of CQF , but I was not looking for a change so I declined to interview. They also send monthly emails notifying you of the job openings where you can apply.

But things may be entirely different when we consider US , there are grads from full-time well known universities , so it makes me think that why would a firm hire someone from some online course which they might not be aware of....and since you don't have relevant work-ex , it might make the search even more painful.. So I would not bank much on CQF for breaking into quant roles in USA...[/quote

Need some guidance.
After CQF are you working in India or US?
What are your thoughts on utility of CQF - Which fields will be typically open for CQF? Also are there enough opportunities for a CQF in India?I am told, USP of CQF is the blend of practicality and theory - is this correct ?
What are typical salary levels in USD for fresh CQF in the industry?

AS others have mentioned, the CQF does not have a careers service, partly because a good % are paid for by their employers, but you might ask yourself what else I do on the CQF apart from C++
 
Hi Darth
Based on your experience of the CQF how do you value its impacts on your career?
I have an IT background and I am interested into becoming a quant. I am trying to get as much as info as possible.
Considering my background and having read a bit on the requirements for entry level positions, I am wondering if getting the CQF would really help me.
I would welcome advices from anyone.
Thanks in advance
 
Hi All,

I am working as a Data Scientist in an IT Company in India. I am looking to get a role of Quantitative Analyst in companies like Goldman Sachs.
I got approval for CQF with some scholarship. I am not sure if its worth spending 4800 pounds for it
