Project/internship under BSchool professor & improving writing skills

Hi All Currently I am CFA L3 candidate(appeared for CFA Level 3 in June 2010). I do not have any experience in the area of finance. I am still not able to get a job in this area. Do you think doing some project under BSchool professor make sense ? Will it help in getting job later ? Any suggestion for improving writing skills? I think this is the reason which is holding me back. Any book ? website ? Thanks

yes working on a project for a business school professor should help a great deal.

How about looking for an internship?
