Equity Analysts

Hey - is anyone an equity analyst here? If so how did you begin? Im a recent business grad and looking to work in this incredibly competitive industry. Anyways how were you able to gain an entry-level position?

As I have little experience in this field I have been acquiring more skills such as proficiency in Python, SQL, VBA, Excel, Bloomberg, creating financial modules and learning about emerging trends such as Blockchain Technology and Cryptocurrency.
My goal is to be a CFA candidate in 2022 after gaining some experience.
