How should I approach breaking into asset management post graduation?
Hi. I am having a mini panic about my potential career path going forward. I have just graduated and I have secured a job at a well known financial services company. I have wanted to pursuesince my penultimate year of university but haven't had any luck with applications. I was thinking about applying again this year for graduate schemes but having researched and read up on things on WSO and related websites I have realised that perhaps I have been approaching it from the wrong angle. I see people saying how it is near impossible to get in. I have 3 main questions:
Should I switch my application strategy to justrole applications instead?
Should I wait until I have enough money for a MSc at a top school?
Is it impossible just for larger firms? Could I break into smaller shops?
