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?

masters recruiting for front office finance jobs(ST, PM, IB, Research) is pretty lacking even for the masters in econ, math, finance guys


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.
