It's that time ! Advice pls..
I am currently a BComm graduate with a major in Int. business and a minor in Economics. I graduated 2 years ago .Wasn’t really focused at the time but managed to secure a B average overall. Figured I would get a decent job. However, that was surely not the case. Due to the economy have been working in the in the marketing department making B2B outbound calls for about a year and a half. Other than that have about other year of sales experience ( have no finance experience). Due to my proven sales record I have been getting offers for financial advisor positions and similar commission based insurance jobs involving sales . Looking to get out this environment ASAP.
Now that I know what I want ,I am looking to take my career to the next level by getting involved in the finance industry. That is where I see myself. After much research, I have enrolled my self for CFA level 1 exam and plan on getting my CFA designation.
I need some advice as to how to get into the finance sector as an entry level candidate , what type of jobs i should be looking for ? and basically, what my next steps should be ?
