Hello Michael, I am [name], graduate student in physics at University of [name]. I am completing completing M.S by December. I am interested in Quantitative Finance field. I have taken Financial modeling and corporate finance and now taking probability theory and time series analysis and also auditing Finance courses. I have started working on commodity hedging project and time series project in R. I seek your advise on how to start my career in the Finance field. I would be grateful if you can help me to get an intern opportunity. Thank You, Regards, [name]
Read my books here. Also, read a healthy selection of other books from that list. Academia? Put that to the side for a while and think about talent. ‘The Talent Code’ and ‘Talent is Overrated’ are both must reads too. If you are really serious my free advice will pay you dividends for a lifetime.
