Level 3 candidates in SFO/San Jose Area

I am a CPA and recently appeared for Level 3 exam. I am wondering if someone can share from their background or experience what are the opportunities available for someone who has an accounting background to make way in the investment management field? I am located in Bay Area (California) and will like more focussed opportunites here. I am considering expanding my skillset and any suggestions from your experience will be appreciated! Thnx
