I'm about to graduate with a Bachelor's in Economics/Admin Studies with a concentration in Finance in about 3 weeks.. What should I do next? My original plan was to work for a few years, get my MBA, and then perhaps go back into the work foce. However, I haven't been having that great of a luck with many firms yet... Do you have any suggestions on what to do? I'm getting a little discouraged..
Apply at Fidelity and see if you get an offer. They have an excellent training program for the testing and it’s a great firm to begin a new career. The wire houses typically offer very little training for the exams and without a connection to an established team, it is very difficult to succeed. My personal opinion is that an MBA is a waste of time and money. Look into getting your CFP or CFA instead.
