Hi All, I need Career Help

Can someone give me a brief description of finance jobs, listing salary, hours per week, and how easy it is too advance. I'm having trouble with picking a career. I would like to make a strong salary but not kill myself doing it (nothing over 60 hours) I love dealing with investments, but I would like a nice life outside of work (ruling out investment banking). I'm assuming I'm leading towards private wealth management, which intrigues me but I need some sense of direction. Hedge Funds, Private Banking, Sales and trading??? Thank for the help. I appreciate it.

Mike

procrustes, what's your opinion? Comment below:

For listing salary and hours per week, check out Glassdoor or something. The whole how easy it is to advance is entirely subjective.

With that said, have you thought about corporate finance?

Also, you should provide some background info about yourself so people can provide you with a better answer. For example, your major, whether you attend a target school, and etc.

Dicta expedita voluptas tempore sed qui quia. Fugit omnis expedita rem mollitia ea. Alias magni sit exercitationem et sit. Omnis corporis illum repellat assumenda quod.

For the lead! Sipag, tiyaga, at lakas ng loob!
