Hey guys, I was hoping to get some advise on breaking into a position as an analyst. A little background, I have a finance degree from a state school, have passed CFA level one, and maybe level 2 (fingers crossed). Since graduation, my experience has been one year at Northwestern Mutual as a Financial Advisor (read: Insurance Salesman), and then one year at BlackRock in an operations role. I live in Seattle, not exactly a big finance center obviously. I feel that all the analyst jobs are going to people out of MBA programs, or people with previous experience. No one seems overly impressed with my CFA progress, even though I’ve always been told its comparable to an MBA. Any advice?
