Career in risk management or developer role

Postby Egodym » Thu Jul 21, 2016 9:45 pm

After my MSc in Quant Finance I would like to pursue a careeer as a risk manager or to get a developer role. By looking at various job ads it seems to me that the statistical background (data mining, machine learning, predictive modelling) is more important than the one in Option Pricing or Stochastic Calculus. So I wanted to ask the following two questions:

1- If my impression is correct, would the usual books for getting a quant job still be helpful for interview preparation?

2- In order to get a risk management role, would an experience as data scientist (not in the financial services area) be more useful than roles in audit or product control?
