So I recently graduated from a business school with bachelors in finance in San Diego last May. 3.23 GPA, and within 2-3 months I took a job out of desperation at a financial advising firm.
Pay is pretty crap with no benefits,vacation,etc=$13/hr.
Mainly doing paperwork, client services, etc.
Recently got offered to take up the Series 6 and 63, 1 year contract, and to get an override on part of the commission.
However I am also currently studying for the CFA level 1 to open some doors into Asset Management.
I have been looking for other jobs around the area, and it seems like San Diego is a bad place to be for finance.
But the girls and weather in San Diego is hard to leave haha.
However I feel like I need to move on and look for more opportunities either in LA, San Fran, Chicago, or New York.
What would you recommend I do? Right now I am thinking of just taking the CFA level 1 results, and then look for better opportunities in Los Angeles which still has the girls and weather. Or actually move to SF or NY which has a higher abundance for finance related jobs that pays more obviously.
