I think check LinkedIn or the career outcomes reports? I’m not too familiar with trading but I imagine there are some that are able to make the jump.

I’d never say impossible but if you look at employment reports, finance is typically broken down into IB, PE, VC, investment management, and other. Trading is clearly a small enough chunk of the pie that it’s not worth breaking out.

Hedge fund trading or bank trading? Pretty sure S&T hires from Mba but tbh kinda a dying indutry
