Hi everyone. I'll try to keep this short and to the point.
I recently graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in Economics. 3.3 GPA, decent clubs/activities, pretty weak/no relevant work experience.
After reading up on various fields in finance,is the one that is the best fit for me. However, I do not know how possible (probable) it is to break in at this point. Should I forget it completely? Try to get into another field (suggestions?) and then when things pick up, try to break in then? Or is it still possible to do, and just have to network/send out many emails/etc. to get in at the entry level (even if it's an "assistant" position) and then move up?
I'm willing to put in the necessary work, but if it's pretty much impossible right now (considering the economy and my background), I just want to know so I can use my time better searching for other types of jobs.
Thanks for your time and help.
