I have an interview with a commodities trading/brokerage firm next week, and not being in the industry I have no idea about the reputation of the firm. Does anyone here have experience in this area? PM me and I can provide the name of the firm.

Didn't you corner the market on booze back in '98?

www.vault.com, if the firm is large enough there should be some feed back on them. All the juicy bits require a subscription. OR you can try your school's career center to see if they have a subscription (mine does)

Check wsj.com, fortune, yahoo finance to find any articles. You can tell a lot about a firm's rep by the press coverage. Lots of coverage = good rep. Scandals, little coverage = bad rep.

It went very well. However, I am passing on the job, as it doesn't provide as much exposure to the trading as I hoped.

I'm really looking for a Trader's Assistant position or a Clerk, in order to work my way up to a Trader or Sales/Trader position.

It's a long shot, but if anyone knows of a position and would be willing to hire smart, personable guy, let me know.
