I’d appreciate if anyone could give me some advice. I’m a young graduate from top-tier EU business school CFA LII candidate with some experience in building financial models of alternative investments for consulting purposes. I have landed an offer as financial advisor at top3 european insurer. The problem is I don’t really like financial advisory because it mainly has to do with contacts and sales. I prefer working as analyst, on the technical issues, building financial models and doing research. The problem is I don’t have any analyst job offers. What should I do? Unemployed for 2-3 months to find the job I want (and IF I find it) or accept the offer as financial advisor? Any comments are appreciated!
If you do not have anayst job offer, I think it would be better to take the advisor job. Gaps would not look good in your resume. You coud continually look for anayst type jobs whie being an advisor.
The best job is the one that gave you an offer…
