I am new to this forum and hope to get some advice and opinion on my career breakthrough in financial industry. Like most people here, I have dreamed and aimed to have a career in Wall Street which lead me choose the finance major for bachelor degree and MBA in Finance. But also unlike others or some, I completed my bachelor in China and MBA in USA, due to Visa reason, I didnt land a desirable job in finance industry, however my current job and these years experience get me successfully naturalize to be US citizen this year, which give me life-long time to pursuit for this dream. Even though I am not working in finance industry these years after graduate with MBA, but I have completed CFA all three levels exams in 2016 (start from 2012). I have one year experience as Equity research in school fund when I studied for MBA (2012-2013) in US school. And my current job is international procurement manager which source and evaluate potential domestic and international companies as suppliers and manage all importing for company. I write equity research and build financial model sometimes for public companies (potential or current vendors) as practice and application and try to relate my current experience with CFA related experience. Also I am not target school graduate. So this is my situation. I want to know how much possibilities for me complete this career transition? What other short you see me that I need to fill in? what kind of company should I go? what can I do? Another obstacle for me is I am now not living in "financial center" city like New York, Chicago and etc. Of course, I definitely will relocate for the job.
I am not old but compare promising and excellent fresh graduates with decent school degree and internship, I am put in the shade, let along those with years experience. But I have walked so far to get here and don`t want to give up.
Excited to write down my first topic and looking forward to communicate with new friends.
