Like as a portfolio analyst or something with a wealth management company. I was applying to jobs in financial services but now I'm thinking about taking more classes part-time. I guess I am feeling a little lazy or like I don't know what I want to do. Would it be good to do a masters in applied math even if I don't know how it would help me?
I have just received my bachelors degree and have so far only had small side jobs. When I'm looking online now, I don't even know where to start. I know that I would most likely be starting off low, but I am looking for an industry that would be cool to work in with increasing opportunities in the years to come. Does anyone have any advice for that?
The more complex your job is and more highly educated / paid you are, the more specialization there is.
Thus if the local bank hires a new credit analyst, and the local insurance company hires a new fixed income securities analyst, and the local hedge fund hires a new portfolio analyst, and the local retail firm and the local health insurance company each hired a business analyst, these analysts all might be classified differently.
But if two of the five firms hired a new janitor, they're both janitors.
In this example is it accurate to say that the fastest growing job category was janitor?
There is far less specialization at the lowest levels and far more at the upper levels and this is addressed only to a limited extent when the Census Bureau ranks job growth - thus the "fastest growing jobs" will almost always be at the bottom even if most of the job growth is at higher income levels.
outcrop again, yes some jobs go to foreigners - like tailors - but we have 4.6?nemployment, so it's NOT "most" jobs.
Beren, it's an example. Job specialization grows the higher up the pay scale you get, and this is addressed only minimally by the Census Bureau in calculating the fastest growing job category. The point is that because of specialization being much greater the higher up you go, it will almost ALWAYS be the case that "the fastest growing job title" will be at the bottom end, even if the total job growth at the bottom is less than that at the middle or top.
I am taking a degree and want to know what jobs i can get with all three degrees combined or separate on their own.
I am keen on getting myself a business analyst job profile and I was wondering what I could do to get myself one step closer to it.
I'm interested in pursuing a career as an equity analyst, but don't want to end up in a job down the road where I am working 80-90 hours per week. I'm willing to work for my money, but I would also want to enjoy my money.
For my job I need to figure this out and I would appreciate the help. Thanks!
I have done by graduation in Mathematics. Currently doing my MBA in Finance through Correspondence and working as a Market Analyst in a MNC.
I want to know about the courses required and to know whether correspondence courses will have any value to pursue. Also like to know about the work experience needed to enter into a fund management company.
Please provide all the information and if any biography of successful fund manager.
Does anyone have any experience or know how their friends have done this?
I probably will need to do a couple of events for some friends or something to build a portfolio, right? I am not interested in spending $2000 on an event planning course/ certification.
My parents think i would be good in economics but I want to see the jobs first. Please tell me what the highest paying economic jobs with the salary and education
I'm a fresh graduate and I do not know how will it be like to be a R&D analyst or whether I will be suitable for that kind of job.
I got a call from a recruiter asking if i was intersted in a position as a fund performance analyst for an asset manager with $30 billion under management. I am interested in portfolio management as a future goal. I would like to know relevant this job would be to that path and if anyone has experience to describe the work, is it tough? Long hours? Salary range to look for? Thanks!
And just out of school?
Wouldn't a company rather hire someone with experience so they can verify that they actually know how to program well? Would this mean that someone just out of school would need a portfolio of their projects? What if they have none worth showing?
So many questions!
I'm referring specifically to software engineering positions that require actually having to program.
I am currently doing entry-level finance-related accounting work in NYC, but do not hold a degree in Accounting (just your standard BA from your local not-nationally-recognized college with a lot of finance classload). I really want to get into more of a research analyst position, or something more to do with the management of securities for some type of fund. How do I get my foot in the door?
I have an interview for an Asset Analyst position with a fixed income administrative services company. I'm not sure what type of questions to expect, as this will be my first time interviewing for this type of position. I graduated college about 3 1/2 years ago, but I've mostly been working temp jobs since then. I've worked at an investment management company (but in the call center) for about 6 months and I've worked at a bank lock box processing center for 2 1/2 years (both temp assignments). I was actually surprised when the company called me for this interview because 1) I actually applied for a Data Analyst position, but they said they want me to interview for Asset Analyst instead and 2) because I don't have prior experience in that position. What should I expect in my interview??
I know that CFP is certified financial planner, and CFA is certified financial analyst, but these two licenses seem so similar to me, that I can't decide which one to pursue. What are the pros and cons to each of these? What are the requirements for attaining each of them? Also, for those of you who know the nature of the work of financial analysts and financial planners, could you please describe what their daily work responsibilities are? Is a job as an analyst simpler because you're just analyzing, instead of planning? If you know any additional factors to both these jobs, please let me know.
I want to get an IT job at Google as a Systems Analyst, Network Analyst, or Software Engineer out of college. I know it is very hard.
What should I do to stand out? I have a 3.78 GPA, a prior internship as a technical aid, relatively decent interviewing skills and am a member of my school's IT organization
What are my chances of getting hired?
Trying to fill the following positions:Senior Database Analyst, Customer Service Analyst, Business Systems Adminstrator, BSA IV, V, Maximo Service Administrator, Project Portfolio Analyst, BA III, BA IV, Senior Communications Specialist, Systems Tech Project Manager, SR Systems Engineer, SR Integration Engineer, SR Application Developer-Integration, SR Application Administrator-TIBCO
I was just notified this week that I was accepted to Indiana University-Bloomington as a finance major and I'm curious on what the best road is to become trader.
I'm assuming I should go into the investment area of finance but then what? Is getting an internship hard? Should I be trading and investing with my own portfolio during my college career to show that I'm interested in the financial markets to possible future employers?
Also, how competitive is it to get a gig somewhere? Is finding a job as a trader as competitive as trying to get into investment banking? Wheres the most likely place for me to get a job at? Do hedge funds recruit from college campuses even or will I have to go on my own to try and find a job? Are titles such as "derivatives analyst" and "financial analyst" just fancy ways of saying trader or are they something different?
I would greatly appreciate it if someone could answer all of these questions and add anything if they must
Recently I got a job offer from Countrywide for Business Analyst position in their finance dept. Is this a good idea to accept the offer considering that Bank of America is buying countrywide and also the company had many layoffs recently?
