Anyone work in Funds/Asset Management in Australia? What is the state of the current job market and how does one break into this field with 2 years of finance experience? More specifically guidance on what kind of jobs would be available to me at this level, and what skills would be required?

jobs are around but not advertised because 1000 applications get lodged. Huge supply of talent from finance redundancies etc that the jobs are generally word of mouth and very choosy.

 

CFA is often desired - put yourself in a fund manager POV and think what would they need to satisfy the consultant ... its normally stability and experience

 

but im just a simple clothes guy,  - others can probably share more here

I've worked on the asset management side and the stockbroking side; the market is stuffed, especially the latter atm. Are you in Sydney or Melbourne?

 

As Romp said, CFA is very important - don't bother with Master or Kaplan courses. MBA would be comparable, but the costs outweigh the benefits if you are starting out with 2 years of finance experience. Feel free to PM to give me more details about yourself.

for those on the clothing side, how easy is it to convert a ticket to patch pocket?

Just tried on my new suit at PJ's. Just a little shortening of the trouser hem and it will be all set to go. Looks fantastic.

Look, I realise this has come up a few times - I need someone competent to do alterations and I have spent a few $k @ SF members darling Hayel & Sons. I have a lot of experience with him, and I find it hard to believe this is the best in or around Sydney. I think one or two people here like his service, and based on that he has become to SF Sydney go to guy for alterations. Can we get some more opinions on this from people with other possible recommendations for places around Sydney to trust with your garments (and not just for simple alterations)? 

 

Also does anyone know anything about http://www.mastertailor.com.au down at the rocks?

So you saying that - despite the fact all the top stores use Hayel - and that he and his son are both master tailors - you are not satisfied? Gimme a break.
