Resume - Graduated, not much experience, entry

Hey,

I've posted here before a while ago, and i used the template you guys recommended and made some revision here it is again. This is probably a bad resume compare to the rest posted on this forum. My intention is to use this resume to find any entry level finance position in toronto. Not IB, just and entry level finance as I lack experiences. I really been trying and decided to change it up again hoping for a new luck. Please comment what you think i should improve, to increase my chance for a job. Thanks!

Beef up relevant coursework section.

I wouldn't put CFA Level 1 candidate... you haven't even passed the 1st exam and everyone is a candidate so not sure why it's there. Only if you passed at least the 1st exam would I recommend adding "CFA Level II" candidate.

Remove English from languages. That's obvious.

Improve technical skills line

I actually found a posting through a agency job posting which mainly is for graduates who lack experience. It's a position at capital market risk management as a junior analyst at a major bank. I actually have huge interest in risk management, the catch is i'll be employed for short period of time with minimum wage. I really want this experience. A little personal, I've actually done quite well in risk management course where i got 92 and also got recommended to become a TA. How can i show case this? In my resume or CL? I'm planning to apply soon.

You can't exactly capture it in your resume aside from stating the course under relevant courses, but you can definitely write about your interest through your CL.

Hope it helps~

Major bank paying minimum wage? Even in a temp position its tough to believe.

I think risk mgt is a good place to be, especially credit risk. You'll improve your financial modeling skills and will learn a lot. Mkt risk is more suited for quants or ppl familiar with the relevant products... operational risk is boring imo, unless you have some rogue scandal going on.

I wouldn't worry about the $ if it can improve your resume and lead to a FT offer for decent pay. Within the financial industry risk probably provides the best job security, alongside more menial roles like accounting and related
