I joined a startup after graduation but it went bust after 6 months. After that I chose to be a retail future/option trader at home. At the time I had done quantatitive trading as a hobby for a while and was happy to do it as a full-time job.
Now I am considering to apply for a job in management consulting industry.
I wonder given my situation how likely I would pass the CV screening and get invited for test/interviews? Since the preparation would invole months of dedicated work, I might not start the prep at all if it is unlikely to happen.
Thank you in advance for your advices!
