    Full time student. Not sure what to study after the next two years, hopefully something within finance in US or UK.

    It's a favorite sport of bigtimers, wannabes, and sockpuppets.

    LOL yea. Well, there are hedge fund managers, then there are the research analysts at hedge funds. Have never run across a "hedge fund management" role.[​IMG]

    Maybe OP meant he wants to be a HF manager some day. Just don't make Raj Rajaratnam your hero.[​IMG]

    Tip: make sure you tell the bankers interviewing you that what you really want to do is get trained there and leave for a HF job as soon as you become somewhat of an efficient worker. They'll appreciate your candor and honesty.

    Thanks, once I get into the hedge fund I'll be sure to tell them that I'm simply there long enough to pay for a political campaign) [​IMG]

    If this was an elaborate attempt to figure out what vox does at the H and what firm the foo works for...it failed.
