I am an engineer working for a municipal government in Toronto, Canada. I really wish to switch careers from engineering to finance, especially investment banking, M&A, IPOs, capital markets, equity research and etc.

I was told that if I pass CFA I, I can start looking for jobs but without a solid finance background, it's really hard to get an interview. Will an MBA be useful? Mind you that I am already 31 so I am afraid that I am too old but I still have the drive and motivation to make changes in my life.

I am really dissatified with my career right now. It's deadend and there aren't many good jobs out there, either they require relocation and the future is just not there.

I need some advice here to figure out a way and have a solid game plan to make this switch a success.

Best regards,
