I’m a long time lurker, first time poster…. As my username implies, I’m planning a move to Boston. I’ve been working on the west coast for a boutique wealth manager for almost a decade now. My job is best described as a jack of all trades. Some client advising, some portfolio management, some manager research, operations, etc. Got promoted and received the CFA designation a few years ago, undergraduate from a top school, and about half way through a part time MBA.
So far so good right? Well, I’ve sent out a few dozen applications, mostly in private wealth and investment consulting, over the last couple of months, and haven’t heard a peep.
Guess I just need a reality check. Is it the job market that bad, or is there something wrong w/ me, or maybe more patience is needed? Any ideas? Thanks.
