2.9 GPA Non-Target on a gap year. Looking for Advice
Due to me losing a scholarship, I've decided to take a gap year to save up enough money to be able to afford housing once I go back to school. I want to make the most out of this year, so I'm currently studying for the CFA level 1 exam which I will be taking in August. One thing that worries me though, is that the job I'm currently working is not even remotely related to finance and is only a means to an end. Aside from BS options/stock, I have NO (absolutely zero) relevant experience, since I've only recently decided to take this career path. In the past I would flip flop between which path to take which was insanely dense of me to do. I don't want feel-good pity advice. I need the cold hard truth to secure a job (or even an internship) once I graduate. Any practical/actionable advice helps.
