How is work in the investment industry like?
Hi, I am considering a career switch to the investment industry from an engineering career. I am considering of taking up the CFA program to equip myself with the technical skills required for this industry and at the same time, to enable me to step foot into this industry. But before I decide whether to enroll in the CFA program, I would like to find out if this industry is really suitable for me.(I do not have any friends working there). Is there anyone who is working in the investment industry who is willing to share with me his experiences and how the work there is like? Especially people who are in same situation as me (who made a career switch) ? Also, I'm quite interested in research and analysis of stocks and equities, and I'm strong in numerical aptitude. What kinds of jobs are there available in the investment industry that will allow me to utilize this strength? Thank you for your replies in advance!
