At most traditional shops there are usually two  different roles for my position: a trader and a sales person. Due to our size and the role that I believe I can be the most successful at, I do both. It's especially important when trading the front end of the market because you can work a little thinner and clients appreciate the value that you bring to them.  While I focus mostly on the municipal market, I also have clients that do multiple fixed income products and I work on a desk that has people involved in all those different markets. If you have a desire to move into fixed income sales and trading, I can give you a good oversight of the market.

Job Description - I am lucky to have a challenging and fun job at Virginia's largest employer. I work on a team of four web collaboration experts supporting the Single-Family Mortgage division of Freddie Mac. We provide a collaboration website and services for roughly 4,000 employees on the Microsoft SharePoint 2010/2013 platform. We each have a specialty; our team lead is a system architect, we have a process automation/business intelligence developer, a web developer, and me. I'm a generalist, dabbling in many areas, but my biggest strengths are in the requirements gathering, training, customer relations, and business process automation skill sets. Our team resides in the Office of the Executive Vice President of Single-Family, so we have unique, very direct, contact with the strategy leaders of the organization. A typical day includes meetings to provide website design guidance and resolve cases in the help desk system, building automation into business processes, and discussing long-term strategy to stay ahead of division needs.
