I’am stuck in kind of a weird siituation: I started working in finance a couple of years ago (while I was a student) - the first position was in wealth management. Then I found out that the most appealing job is IB (colleagues advise as so on)…and therfore started to improve my chances to get into IB and deceide to go for CFA. As long as I had proper motivation in place CFA was quite an easy thing (of course I spent much time etc).
After passing Level 1 I finally got into IB…and illusions was broken - I didn’t like it at all. Then I started studying for Level 2 hoping for a better place in a better bank or whatever. Again there was motivation in place…better job, more money etc: and I passed it quite easily.
As of now I have offers and opportunities to change job, to go to a bettter bank or whatever, but the funny thing is that I don’t want. It seems to me that I don’t want to work with this boring stuff…presentations, models etc.
AND right now I am thinking about going for Level 3. WHY? Because there is still some hope that I SHOULD COMPLETE THIS F**ING PROGRAM.
So, there is two ways - one to finish the program and still hope for more intresting and excisiting work. And second - throw it all away and start trying to work and look for a place which I would really love.
THE QUESTION is - what would YOU choose ?
