Jumping into back office!
I’m a 2015 graduate living in Toronto. I just passed my CFA level 2 and I’m trying to get into the financial analyst position. I currently have no relevant experience as I just have an accounts payable jobs and a part-time job as a bank teller. I have heard that jumping into back office can get you closer than the current jobs I have now. But I would like to hear anyones thoughts on this especially someone who was in a similar situation.
I was told in a previous post to learn programming and financial modeling in my free-time. Can anyone recommend a good course to take. I have currently tried to push myself through agencies as well. Can anyone recommend a good agency that may push me in the right directions. Most of the agencies try to put me into junior accounting role which I would be ok with but these companies often don’t have a finance department.
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance!
