I just changed it, but most likely we're looking for someone just out of school or with a few years experience.
Understood. Just seen loose language choices result in frivolous claims too many times. Even "recent graduate" unless tied to a non age-related reason.

This sort of reminds me of going to parties in my old suburban town. You'd meet someone, and they would eventually ask you what you did. So I told them - it was a straight forward traditional non-financial/ non-legal job.
Naturally I'd then ask them what they did. Frequently they would go into a somewhat lengthy monologue. I'd ask a few questions, which would prompt more lengthy explanation.

Most of the time, when it was over, I never did have a clue about what they actually did.

Sure, but did you let alone others have a clue what you actually did? With still-challenged recollections of a past dynamic role with frequent changing responsibilities and multiple upward reporting lines, I jest.

I've wondered about trying to get into fintech. I've 15 years experience at MSPs doing network systems administration (and putting smiles on clients' faces). Not a ton of programming, mainly Powershell, but I've dabbled enough in Python, Ruby, etc. It's not that hard to learn once you've got a background and understand the theory of it. And I mined LTC for a few years so I've got the blockchain/crypto thing down.

Seems like there's no consistent skillset required to get into the industry.

You just need to have some sort of STEM skill. I was in product development for a large fintech and we had engineers, finance, stats, MIS, etc type of backgrounds for developers. They mainly just look for problem solving ability...if you're good at math and decent at coding (depending on the role), you can easily land a job.
