Career Advice In Sales/Research

Hello everyone.

I want to thank you all right away for taking the time to answer this question or simply giving it a read. I am a Canadian undergraduate student in a semi-target school majoring in Finance. Just like the majority of the students, I was thriving to get into I.B. by networking, modeling on my own, extracurricular activities, etc. However, I realized that I.B. is not something that interests me as much after doing DCF models for a while. I realized that I wouldn't like to do it for a living. However, I deeply enjoy researching (FactSet is my best friend) and talking to people. I enjoy talking to new people every day and learn something new daily. I would like to incorporate research and stock knowledge with the human aspect and sales. I was working in sales m entire life and I do believe I have an edge in that.

Many thanks to everyone in advance for taking your time!
