Equity Research to Corporate Finance?
I've been an ER associate for about 2.5 years at a regional bank outside of NY and want to get out of the industry into something a bit more stable and with a decent work/life balance, as both are lacking in my current role. After doing a bit of research on corp. fin I'd like to get into either an FP&A role or a treasury role if possible. Has anyone done this before or know what types of roles I should be shooting for? Seems like most FP&A analysts get hired right out of school so should I be aiming for something higher up or aim to start as an analyst? I'm thinking networking is my best bet but would it be weird to cold email/message people on linkedin now that I'm out of college? Any help would be appreciated.
I graduated from a non-target and have passed two levels of the CFA (was gonna take the third this spring but Covid ruined that).
