I have 2 years of entry level experience at a firm that cannot afford to pay me a dollar more than $40K/yr but I have a front office role. My educational background includes a MS in Financial Engineering.
I’m getting to the age where $40K/yr simply won’t cut it anymore.. it pays the bills but it won’t cut it when it comes to starting a family, buying a house, saving for retirement, etc. Even in this economy, there are lots of Mid and Back Office jobs that pay vastly more than that given my qualifications.
I still would like to work in Front Office but keep in mind that I may be forced to find a new job since my company’s already in a dire state (see my other thread in this forum.)
Would I still have a shot at Front Office again if I work at a Back or Mid Office position for a few years after this one?
