As the title says I'm in need of career/life advice. A little about me: I have no experience whatsoever in finance/business as I'm about to graduate in may of 2022 with an engineering degree. I got a little screwed over by the military (not naming the branch) in that they decided financial management was a better route despite the work I put into my engineering degree.
I'll be a financial management officer for the next 4 ish years after I graduate in the spring doing accountant/budgeting tasks in addition to managing teams of 10-50. What I do when I separate from the service to help me land an IB job? I'm pretty lost but I have a few ideas that I'd like some input on.
- Get an MBA from a target school:
- not sure where this would land me in IB considering my work experience may or may not be relevant whatsoever
- What sort of Job level offering could I be looking at if I receive one?
- Go straight into some sort of finance Job to build up my application for IB
In addition to what I do post-service, would it be worth pursuing some sort of finance job/summer position (I'll have roughly 6 months of down time before I begin service). I never thought I'd find myself posting to a finance board, let alone asking for IB advice, but I suppose it's worth a shot--any help and input would be appreciated.
