Need advice on what to career to pursue with a finance degree?
I am a recent graduate of a tier three school, with a degree in finance. I currently have no experience, so I am basically in the entry level status. Anyways, I would love to pursue an analyst position or possibly get involved with budgeting/forecasting. I guess you could say those are my goals. I still havent truly decided what I want to do. I have interviewed and thought about some possible jobs, I just dont know what is going to get me the experience I need. I dont want dead end experience. Work in Retail Banking - I have purused personal banker positions, but most are telling me to start out as a teller! Work in Mortgage Origination - this is with a bank that specializes in mortgages (Indymac Bank) Offered me a position, but its hourly. Basically im trying to get a job thats not necessarily glamorous paying the big bucks, but instead allows me to develop good work ethic, with the possibility to learn and grown and mold myself into a essential player in society!
