Any success breaking into buyside lately?

Any one who has passed Level II or III, but without prior experience in finance, managed to break into buyside lately? Would love to hear success stories. Thanks!

How can you break into the buyside without prior experience in finance, CFA or not? That’s tough to do in any meaningful role unless you have a special / hard to find experience set.

i dont think your really helping this guy out. its like your implying that guys in finance right now had finance exp before they even had a job in finance? is that what your saying? everybody in the field ‘breaks in’ some how. to the op: havent heard any success stories yet on my end.
