Who's Hiring on Wall Street (and Beyond)
Tuesday, November 13, 2012

"We're also looking to buy businesses," he said. "If we found a business like ours, a registered investment advisory practice, where somebody was looking for a succession plan -- maybe they were retiring and looking to transition and they want to sell their business, we're looking to buy them."

Meanwhile, fxKnight.com anticipates that it will start hiring again in the near future.

"We go through spurts," said Andrei Knight, hedge fund expert, founder, and Senior Currency Strategist at fxKnight. "We just hired on a couple people, and we plan to be hiring in the near future. At the moment all of our positions are filled. But we're getting ready for a pretty big growth phase, so I anticipate hiring in the near future."

fxKnight suspects that his firm will be interested in traders, Web designers, "and probably customer support reps as we continue to get more and more popular."

"Believe it or not, everybody looks down on customer support reps as an entry-level position," said Knight. "I think it's one of the most important positions within the company. You're the frontline. You're the person a customer is going to talk to first. And as a boss, my customers are what I value most. So my best people are going to go into those roles. It's got to be someone I really trust."

Knight clarified his definition of customer support. "Customer relationship management, I should say," he said. "That's really what the job is. You don't fire off an e-mail and forget about them. I expect my people to really befriend and manage those relationships."
