    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at DV Trading (Chicago, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Referred by a friend who works in the company. First a phone interview, then a shadowing day with a senior trader in the firm. Watched him trade throughout the day and was asked questions about the market and things he previously explained during the process. In the afternoon had a more formal interview going through probability questions, and previous experience, alongside what I could bring to the firm. Great process overall.
