At the end of the academic year I will graduate with a Computer Science degree (hopefully) and I would like to peruse a career in quantitative finance. What is the dest way of doing this?

Is it worth doing a doctorate like this from UCL or just get a job in the city with a hedge fund or bank.

Where is the best place to start looking for quant openings, websites, reciters, or other places?

I live just south of london so commuting is not a problem.
