    Trader Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ED&F Man (New York, NY) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Basic industry centric questions, heavy focus on networking. Highly recommend having some sort of contact with an employee prior to applying (reach out via industry events / linkedin.) Really focus on learning your specific commodity both its futures market and the physical market. Read up on the company's history and mention it in your interview. Be yourself and remember as a trader you need to be able to sell yourself as well as your commodity, which is often the same as your competition.
