“We heard about it on a Thursday afternoon, that they were looking for traders in Chicago, at the Chicago Board of Trade. A new firm that was funded and had seats and was looking for prop traders and then I think on Friday morning, the very next day at 7:00 a.m. we jumped into a car and drove up to Chicago from Boca which is about a 22-hour Drive. We drove up to Chicago and on Monday morning we were basically banging on doors and looking for a position within the firm we know about and others.
