Any former IT associates transition to EQ Analysis?

Hi all, I notice there are a handful of engineers and it-specific people on this site. Had a Q for those that have transitioned to Eq analysis right now or have anything lined up post the CFA exams. Can you guys enlighten the rest of us on the steps you took to get to your current position? CFA obviously is a great first step…are there are other specific tips that folks can suggest? Thanks in advance!
