Best Entry Level Finance Opportunity for Career Changer with Transferable Skills

Trying to figure out the best way for me to get my foot in the door of the finance world.

Went to college for business administration and graduated in 2012. I have 7+ years of experience in marketing, business plans, marketing research, strategy and project management. I have built and developed business plans for various businesses & industries, with sections including industry and competitor analyses, SWOT, financial projections and legal/regulatory/compliance.

I have an uncanny skill of predicting if businesses will succeed or not in the long term based on their business and marketing activities. Predicted the downfall of Sears and Toys R'Us, during my freshman year in college. I also plan on registering for the CFA Level 1 exam in December 2019 once hired.

Suggestions for the best ways for me to get my foot in the door knowing all of this information?
