How can an engineer get into the financial services industry?
I'm at a crossroads in my career. I'm burnt out of engineering and want out. I realized that it just isn't me. I have been interested in the financial services for a long, long time but don't know what options I have to break into the industry. After talking to friends, family and those in the know, I have been inundated with all the possible pittfalls. Yet, I am not discouraged. So can anyone please offer options or ideas other than going back to school for a MBA in Finance? Thanks in advance.
