Need help transitioning away from Macro Research
I'm unfortunately stuck in a rut.
I've worked essentially as a commodities analyst at a very small macro research firm for 5 years, having taken this as my first job after graduating from a Russell Group uni with a bachelors in Maths. The money has been good, I've learned more than I could have imagined, and.
However, I've massively struggled to find exit ops from this role. I want to stay in the sector, ideally to go into trading,, or anything else where I can leverage my experience. Maybe it's because I don't have a masters, maybe it's because my firm has basically zero reputation. But after many sent applications with anything associated with commodities, I'm struggling to get past first stages.
Any tips or advice from you guys would be grand - I'd accept anything at this point (barring a massive paycut).
