What do you guys actually do?

I completed the CFA a few years ago with the hope that I would be working in investment management. Most of the Charterholders I know work in Commercial Banking or unrelated industries.
I work as a data / finance analyst in a corporate role and have had trouble even getting an interview for anything investment management related.

Just wondering if people here have had similar paths, or if most people are actually working as “portfolio managers” like the CFA Institute materials would suggest.

I’m a regulator. :man_shrugging:
