Advice for a Non-EU Non-USA CFA Level II Candidate to land a job abroad

dear friends,

yesterday the results for the CFA level i exam has announced and i have learnt that i have successfully passed the exam. i registered for the level ii exam in june 2017.

i have started to look for a job but i have some problems:

1) i am looking for jobs abroad (in eu, usa, canada, australia etc.) and i am a non-eu citizen.

2) i am 23 years old and have a masters degree in finance from a reputable business school in europe. but i have very little work experience which consists of some small internship in big4 and ministry of finance.

this makes me depressed because i usually receive rejection emails. i think that passing the level i exam will not have an impact on my fate...

i am looking for advice...
