CFA + Coding
Hello everyone! Just looking for some advice here from all you smart folks.
Background: I passed CFA level 3 this year, still holding a job in the back office of an investment bank. So not getting any required work experience. I’ve been networking like crazy here and also enrolled in a self taught Python course in Udemy. I’ve learned the basics of coding and then it transitioned into how to use it (along with all the libraries) for data science and manipulation. The part of the course I am really excited for is developing an algorithmic trader. Anyways, I truly enjoy getting home from my job here and coding for hours trying to learn, manipulate data, plot it out and hopefully soon develop some algo’s.
I Am curious what sort of job (ideally within the equities group) combines finance knowledge and what I’ve learned and enjoy doing on Python? I do not have a comp-sci degree, nor any real professional investing knowledge so I know I won’t land anything to write home about immediately, I just really don’t know what sort of jobs/job titles to search for to get more info on requirements etc.
If anyone has any idea of a sort of job that I am describing it would be really appreciated. I’d love to do more research on whatever field I am dreaming of!
Thanks all in advance!
