I want to apply for a Portfolio Management Associate job (junior PM) and I don't have any professional investment experience, but I have been trading options for about two years now. I learned it through Investools education and learned about basic stocks, advanced tech analysis and options. I have 10 years of other financial experience though. I have a degree in Retail Merchandising, but they want a degree in finance, econ or accounting.
I am planning to go to business school, and try to get a job at Morgan Stanley when I'm about 24. I want to be an investment banker, mostly being associated in Mergers and Acquisitions. How hard will it be, what level would I start at, and what are some things that I would do. Just looking for any people that have had real experience.
Do you have to be really good at math to be an analyst, associate, or vice president in this field? What sort of skills does it take?
I am currently working for a big CPA firm. I have two years of experiences. I am looking to make a switch to Financing, particular Investment Banking. I have been searching for an associate position at many of the IB firms, but all of them seem to require an MBA or IB experience. Due to this reason I am planning to apply to business school. Is it possible for me to find a IB or equity research job without prior experiences or an MBA? If so, how?
I'm looking into working in investment banking, and was wondering what I need to do? Where should I intern, what's a good place? What are people hiring investment bankers looking for? I'm also graduating with a degree in Economics soon.
I know that you can get almost any job with a Mathematics degree, and I also that Mathematics graduates have the LOWEST levels of UNEMPLOYMENT, but which jobs can they get exactly?
Specific details please?
I know that you can be a maths teacher/lecturer, and that's obvious, but I really don't want to go into teaching.
I also know that you can have a job in Finance and Accounting, but they are also obvious.
I would like too become an investment banker and I am wondering how would I do this? What I mean is what would I major in for college? After that how do I get a MBA degree as well. Ultimately I also want to earn a Phd degree, I know it is going to take a lot of hard work, but I was wondering how would I do this? P.S what is the average salary of an investment banker with an MBA and Phd degree?
Consider the millions and millions of dollars associated just with domestic violence for example. When police forces come to rely on government funding of that nature, they are certainly encourged to show there is a continuing problem, needing continued funding. It's much the same with with private organizations that raise millions. I was reading how a couple women were fired from one such organization after questioning the accuracy of what information was being realeased as well as where much of the money actually went.
People here often focus on actions and how those benefit men or women, but I think often the economic influences of how benefits from policy decisions is overlooked. What do you think? Where else have you seen the ecnomics of gender issues come into play?
CAustin - I agree it's in no way unique to feminism and I think the politics of ethenol is another great example. I know many who also argue that philisophically, not paying any attention to the economic politics of the issue.
It just occured to me that people here rarely mention the influence that groups trying to raise or obtain money has on policies related to gender.
What are my options with a finance(undergrad) and MBA degree (entry level)? I am not a sales kind of person. Hedge fund associate would be ideal, I enjoy research and analysis but have no formal experience.
Koury, I got both, but having trouble getting a job, I figured it is due to lack of experience. Then I thought may be i'm shooting too high, and wondering what a person in my situation should expect. But it seems if I look at lower positions (payroll clerk, various admin jobs)- High School diploma is the only educational requirement and I think I can do better. I seem to be either underexperienced or overqualified.
I currently work in a call center and I only get paid for P10,000/month. I'm looking for a high paying job but i'm only an undergrad though.

My husband is currently making a good salary, but because his job is very unstable, we are wanting to take the profits after getting out of debt and invest in what would be the most profitable investments. We don't want to do the stock market because of the economy and the instability of it. We are thinking either a mobile home park, land, houses, things like that. Does anyone have any ideas. Please don't give me ideas that are associated with what you do for a living to help you out....I am wanting advice based on what you have found to be profitable. Thank you for your help!
Ive just recently added investment banker to one of my future jobs. I had a talk about it with my Dad's friend. Apparently a investment banker advises companies where and when to spend their money, on gold, shares etc... If you make the company gain money, you'll get a cut off it.
Is that what a investment banker does? If so, or not, can you please extend on what a investment banker does fully?
Thank you, so much!
