I graduated with a BS in Finance in '09 from a public university in the Southeast, but due to the shitstorm taking place in the industry at the time, I was unable to to secure a finance position upon graduation, or even an internship prior to graduation. I didnt even get a callback for an interview. This seems to be the case with a large percentage of my class. I still get awkward calls from unemployed former classmates looking for work. Luckily, with the help of a professor I was able to land a sales position with a marketing company and have been working there since graduation. Im performing well, but I abhor everything about the work and the company and need out ASAP. The financial sector is improving, so I would like to transition into a position that would utilize the skillset I aquired in undergrad. My question is, having no real-world financial experience or related work history, what am I qualified for? What roles should I be pursuing? What can I do to make myself more marketable? Ive been thinking about getting my series 63, or even getting an MBA to become eligible for internships. Im just a little lost, seeing as even "entry-level" positions require related work history.
