I will be graduating with a bachelor's in finance in about 2 years. I will be looking for a job as soon as I graduate. I want to eventually become a financial analyst and am looking for a modest starting point to enter the field of finance considering my less than spectacular credentials.
Here's what I plan to graduate with:
Western Illinois University Graduate
3.1 Cumulative GPA
3.6 Major GPA (Finance)
Minor in Accounting
Spent a semester abroad at Hong Kong polytechnic University.
Fluent in Mandarin Chinese.
at Masco Corporation (Contractor Services)
Passed CFA level 1
I obviously don't have a chance at getting into ainvestment bank right now(ever?). What are some attainable entry level jobs that people like me can aim for to enter the field? Thanks in advance.
Just from browsing around people have put out resumes with awesome credentials and only get about 1 response for every 100 resumes. So it seems pretty hopeless for me.
