There are a wide variety of careers available in the capital markets for people with the right qualifications and the right attitude. Here are some of the high-quality career options in the capital markets.

The fundamental analyst who looks at the profitability and financials of stock and values for investment decisions.

A technical analyst who looks for chart patterns to enable clients to identify trading opportunities based on chart data.

A dealer who acts as the link between the client and the broker for execution of orders on the exchange.

Sales trader who handles a team of dealers and also looks at sales and marketing tasks to expand the business.

Algo specialists are those with programming skills who can develop algos and write the code for automated execution of trades.

Algo testers are those who do rigorous testing of the algos before they are deployed in the live environment

Finally, if you are the back office types, then there are options for you in the mid-office and back office, where you can handle operations, compliance, etc.

These are the broad career options available. There are various ways to apply for these roles. The easiest way is to go to the website of the brokers where these jobs are regularly advertised. You can directly write and send your resume to the HR. 
You can also approach them through consultants for slightly senior-level jobs. You can also register yourself with head hunters. A lot of recruitment in this industry happens by word of mouth. So if you have friends in the industry, just pass your resume to them and that is likely to work out much faster for you. Jobs in the industry can be challenging and also rewarding.
