    any financial mathematicians/engineers on this board?

    anyone know any good places to find out what one does as a financial engineer, what job prospects are like?

    I think the job prospects would be fine for those with degrees in econometrics and financial engineering because currently they are more jobs in those fields than people holding degrees in those fields. This creates a gap that is currently being filled by physics PhD and other technical grads but like mechanical and electrical engineer at its infancy in the defense industry people with specialized degrees will dominate the field when they are enough to do so.
