Quant Researchers: Please help if you have prior experinces
I have a PhD in Electrical Engineering (focused on Applied ML) from Ivy and 2 Yoe @Google. I’m bored at Google and am considering jumping to top hedge funds.
I’d appreciate it if you could let me know:
1. if I’d have a high chance of getting interviews (and possible offers) from top firms for Quant Researcher roles.
2. Does the fact that I spent two years at Google (working on a deep learning project and I’m not a new grad anymore) hurt my chances? I feel I was stronger in math/stats before joining Google when I was a new grad but can prepare for the interviews.
