We are excited to introduce our new Leadership Rotation Network (LRN). LRN was created to provide new graduates the tools to sharpen their technical skills and understanding of market fundamentals while also providing insight into how our teams collaborate to support our trading business. We sat down with the LRN Program Manager Desiree to learn about the goals of the program and the qualifications needed to succeed.
Our interns experience a fast-paced environment and are equipped with the tools, training and experiences necessary to jumpstart their future. Learn how our internship can prepare you for a full-time career at DRW.
In a year filled with lessons learned, Kim T, head of DRW VC, said that one of the biggest was a reminder to founders that, while long-term planning is good, it’s also important to stay nimble and recognize and seize opportunities as quickly as they arise.
DRW aims to hire the industry’s best — a mindset we also apply to enhancing existing employee’s professional development. Our emphasis on career growth manifests in a number of ways, like a leadership training curriculum designed by senior leaders. This program, along with additional external trainings, helps employees evolve their skills and roles at the firm. Our growth mindset even extends to Chicago’s tech scene, where we routinely onboard, then hire interns into full-time roles each year.
It’s been a year since our teams shifted to a remote environment as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we caught up with some team members who have joined the firm over the past year. Hear from Elena, Product Manager based in Chicago, on her interview and onboarding experience.
