I am currently a level 1 candidate..and would be giving my attempt in dec 2012. I just wanted to know the job opportunities for cfa in USA (i live in india)..i have no prior job experience and i am stiil doing my bachelors degee..I know this sounds kind of crazy but i wish to just hop on a plane and get to america and scout for job opportunities..since i have mo work exp and have no “connections” and since I am doing my grad from india..do i stand a fair chance of landing a job in usa..?? since average salaries for a fresher cfa is around 50000$ i am hopeful that it would be “knowledge and talent” which would be given preference and not nationality…if guys from usa having same level of knowledge and skills can get an average of 50000$ on the basis of cfa certificate..i was kind of hoping i can score it too..(i know this may sound immature and noob but i do have a point right?)
so the main question is should i just leave my nation and just come to usa looking for jobs or should i not..??
(the main reason for doing thid is here cfa is still n its early stages and very little opportunities are available and even if there are..the pay is very less)
any help would be appreciated..!!
flying off to USA looking for jobs!!??
