Get Out of your Fishbowl
Ok all you emerging techies, think you’re headed to Google or Facebook or the next hot social media stage? Hey, MBAs, think you’re on the fast track to big $$$ in finance? Think again, now really think. Who would you guess is trolling for the best tech people money can buy? Believe it or not, Wall Street.
Wall Street is hiring more technology specialists than bankers these days. Financial services industry is keen to ride the new wave data scientists offer. Developing algorithms to enhance high-frequency trading and big data analytics are seizing the lion’s share of financial CEO’s attention.
With data and behavioral scientists the most sought-after fish on Wall Street, an MBA alone, may not be your best bait.
While honing up on your knowledge of markets and finance, get hot on computer science. Likewise, techies get exposed to the markets. That double-barreled harpoon might just spear you the biggest fish in the pool.
