Quant career in mid forties

Postby Zlatko » Tue Nov 06, 2012 1:49 pm

Hi everyone,

I have 15 years of software engineering experience, most of it in C++. I have a masters in artificial intelligence. I am considering taking up some financial maths in order to try to get a job in finance. Do you think my age (47) would hold me back from getting interviews?

Thanks.

Regards,

Zlatko

basically yes...

the main possibility is to try and move gradually, get a software oriented quant role first and gradually become more quantish
