I am a 28 year old architect with a high interest in finance and economics. I have been investing since I was 13 and have made myself a little fortune from basically nothing. I am now looking for a career in finance, however, no one with an open position is replying to my emails. I have thus decided to embark on a CFA journey. I haven’t taken the level 1 exam yet, however, I am very knowledgeable in many topics in the study books, and I will be taking the exam in December. By March, I will hopefully immigrate to Canada. I know firms here in Dubai will not even look at my resume, but are Canadians more open minded? Assuming of course that I have passed my level 1 exam. Emigrating is a scary step and the prospect of unemployment is even scarier. Continuing work in architecture is not an option for me. Architects are a bunch of idiots who use jargon and hyperbole to make themselves look smart. At least in finance, industry language actually indicates meaning.
