Edward Jones

Trading Intern

June - August 2017 • Tempe, AZ

What I liked

They give you a spot on the trading floor like any other trader or Managing Partner would. This includes access to proprietary tools, softwares, and Bloomberg terminals. They assign you meaningful projects that will work for the benefit of the company, given that you do them correctly. They are all willing to help and go for coffees to meet you at a more personal level. Most are very charismatic people. Had the opportunity to attend client dinners, happy hours, and a baseball game in the EDJ box.

What I wish was different

More out of the office interaction (although there was plenty) and actually pricing fixed income securities and not just on my free time.


Learn BVA, learn the ins and outs of financial markets and fixed income to understand client and group calls better, and have a passion for trading and markets.
