SocGen rogue trader lands new job

Who says crime doesn't pay? Jerome Kerviel, the rogue trader allegedly responsible for $7.3 billion losses at SocGen, has got a new job - as a computer consultant.

Kerviel is working for LCA computer consultancy in the Paris suburb of Levallois, hired by the same man who hid him from journalists after the SocGen scandal broke. He was offered the job while behind bars in early February, awaiting the results of a police investigation into the affair, according to this AP report.

Like Nick Leeson before him, the after-dinner speaking circuit surely beckons.
