I am currently 26 years old and and have 3 years of experience in the agricultural industry. Worked with farmland management for one year and have been working with AgTech since. My bachelor's was in Agricultural Business. I have realized that tech is not my true interest whatsoever, and have a strong desire to transition to Ag PE. I would consider my experience valuable, just unfortunately not relevant to finance. My only finance experience is limited to college coursework and basic financial statement work while at farmland management company. I am considering taking CFA Level 1 in December, to build a knowledge base as well as show some financial credibility.
Looking for input on the steps I should take, and if CFA is the right route. Not really considering business school at this point, as I feel that getting relevant work experience sooner would be a better move than being 28 with no finance experience (and in debt).
Worth noting that I'm tri-lingual (Portuguese, Spanish), which could be of value to firms investing in South America. I also have international agriculture experience from Brazil.
Thanks in advance.
