Jump to finance industry from law firm as paralegal

Hi Guys,

I just graduated from western coast college, non-targeted school and had my full-time as a paralegal in NY law firm, top-tier. Now I am looking for analyst in the finance industry. Considering I do not have any finance experience(but I had the intern experience in Security and Commercial bank and did some document review for M&A case in the law firm), where you recommend I should start with? A master about finance? Or do more internship in the finance industry and try to get a return offer?
