> Dear Students,
> I’ll be brief. If you are interested in working in the U.S. financial markets, and especially in the derivatives side of these markets, this is an event that you should not miss. For 3 ½ hours, with a refreshment & networking break half way through, you will hear from, and be able to ask questions of, 10 speakers who are actively involved in the options market. This not about options theory, but rather about what it’s actually like being in the trenches of the financial markets. How did these guys get their jobs? How were they able to get promoted to the positions they have? What do they do on a daily basis? What skills that they obtained in the classroom have been most useful in their careers?
>  
> The keynote speakers include Michael Cahill, President of the Options Clearing Corporation, and Hazem Dawani, an IIT alumnus who created his own company, OptionsCity, whose multi-asset algorithmic trading platform called Freeway, just two days ago won the Chicago Innovation Award .
>  
> And incidentally, while this event is hosted here at IIT Stuart, it is open to university students from all over the Chicago area. So feel free to invite your friends at other universities to join us.
>  
> I hope to see you there.
