Lost Soul Career Options

Would appreciate any career advice/suggestions as I am quite lost and unguided.

About Me:

  • Graduated from top tier Canadian uni, studied Finance & Statistics
  • Experience:
    • Operations Analyst (6 months), Financial Analyst (6 months). Both were with a big Canadian bank
    • Currently a Senior Risk Analyst (10 months) with a financial services company. Encompasses a lot of data analysis and coding.
  • Passed CFA Level 2
  • Experienced with SQL, SAS, VBA, Excel.
    • Have dipped my toes into R, Python and Matlab.

What type of high-paying roles can I target with my background? I'm curious if I'm competitive enough for any of the big dogs (i.e. IB, Hedge funds or PE). I am still fairly young (24) and am very ambitious.
