Before my passed my CFA level 1 I had no experience and only a university diploma. I was interviewed for an equity analyst for a small boutique Toronto firm. I didn’t get the job
Later I got hired in FX sales. Got some experience. Hated it. Left.
Right now, I’ve passed CFA level 1, gained financial services experience, and doing the CSC. Today I was interviewed for an intern equity analyst position with a boutique Toronto firm. I didn’t get it.
What is it about this fucking position? The reply I get from the employer is “we found someone with skills more aligned with what the company needs” but they never tell you what fucking skills. I’m so mad right now, like how the fuck do I get a job. And each job requires experience, how the fuck am I suppossed to get experience if I can’t get the fucking job. And it’s like why interview me and then tell me I don’t have the right skills, how about not wasting my time.
I am steamed. And worried. If I can’t get the job that pays $0 how am I supposed to get the job that pays $40 000
