As my name states, I am a miserable JD. Top-ten law grad on a one-year deferral from big law, with the increasing likelihood of a prolonged job search floating on the horizon (i.e., Unnamed Firm to Miserable JD: Drop Dead). I'm looking to escape this ignominious fate; I want to change sectors.
So does passing the CFA Level 1 give me a legitimate shot to get a financial analyst position (I want to avoid paying for a top 10 MBA)? A job with a small fund or bank would be sweet. And don't get me wrong, I'm not looking to waltz into Barclays or Goldman.
Oh all-knowing masters of the universe, help this poor, floundering scrivener!
Feel free to insult my intelligence for getting such a worthless degree. Your ridicule is well deserved.
