    Old Mission Capital, a proprietary trading firm with offices in Chicago, and New York, is currently recruiting interns for the summer of 2020.  Students who intend to graduate (from undergraduate, masters or PhD programs) in 2020 or 2021 are encouraged to apply.  No prior experience in finance is necessary.

    Responsibilities

    Interns will be working with our senior traders in exploring new trading strategies, and will be required to participate in the firm’s education program. This will give interns a chance to learn about all aspects of trading and financial markets both formally (in classes) and on-the-job. Our Chicago, New York and London offices collaborate through virtual classes, which are taught by the traders and researchers.  Interns are closely mentored by the firm’s senior traders.
