I recently graduated with a MSc. in mathematics from a good institution. I am very interested in finance, and looking for work in quantitative finance, but as I'm sure you all know, it's quite difficult to get interviews. I have no work experience in finance, but I am a good mathematician (almost mathematician, I don't have a PhD), and an excellent programmer, and would certainly be able to pick up the work and be productive in 6 months. Where should I be looking? Are data analysis positions my way in?
