Rank: Monkey | 45

I graduated from Rutgers College in 2006 with a BA in Economics, and have owned my own business since 2009. I recently decided that I would like a career change, and want to make it into the financial world. Ive never worked in finance (or anything related to it), so I am looking for some direction as to where would be a good place to start. My ideal job would be a trading position, but I realize that it is not where most people start (I am also quite aware of the current state of the industry). Since I have no working experience in the field, I would love to get into a position with a good training program. I am pursuing this career change strictly out of passion, so quite frankly I don't care about starting salaries, I would even be willing to start with an unpaid internship position if it got my foot in the door. I would like to add that despite my lack of work experience in the field, I do have a strong knowledge of the market, and a strong understanding of Economics. I would really appreciate any input!
