I'm mostly interested in portfolio management / research type careers. Unfortunately, I think my background is not really hitting the right chords with the recruiters. In hindsight, maybe I should have went for a MA Econ or MS Finance. I don't want to go back to school (b-school), but is it a must?

It feels like my resume gets tossed right into the trash can once they see that my educational background is in Engineering

If I had done Finance or Econ or Acct, maybe I would get more interviews


Where did you do your masters at?


Not really- just spend a few years in industry and get an MBA.
