so I’m trying to eventually become a financial analyst. I have a BA in business economics from a 4 year college, but I only took a couple accounting courses. I’m not even eligible to take the CPA exam in my state (california). I heard that accounting jobs could help me get my foot in the door like staff accounting, accounts payable/receivable, but I really don’t have that accounting experience that anyone’s looking for.
I was thinking about going for an associate’s in accounting from a community college, but it seems there’s a limit with that as it’s not enough to become an actual accountant.
I’m studying for the CFA exam, but I want to see if there’s other things I can do to make progress towards becoming a financial analyst. I don’t want to put all my eggs in one basket and have everything weighing solely on that exam. what are some good ways to break into financial analysis?
