We are going to talk about some of the things you need when you are applying for academic jobs, in particular: teaching statements and letters of recommendation.

Jobs in Quantitative Finance

Dan DeDora (Stony Brook '15) works in the quantitative finance department at Morgan Stanley. He will tell us about 1) his background/experience going from academia to finance, 2) the Quantitative Finance program in general, 3) his job as a strategist specifically, and 4) tips/advice from an interviewer. If you think you might be interested in a career in quantitative finance, this is a good chance to ask questions and perhaps to get started on the path towards an internship.

Note: This is a joint event with SHPE (Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers).
