I have no idea even how to begin doing those things. But they do sound like good things to try to figure out. I am hoping that having a mentor would speed up this process considerably.
[APPRENTICE] I have a bachelor's degree in Math and I want to get a job in Quantitative Finance. I don't know much about Finance, or the math that is specifically used there, though I am very confident in my math skills. I would like to get a better understanding of what the job is like and also what kinds of skills they are looking for.
