I'd like to start applying for analyst roles within the Wealth/Asset Management, and would appreciate any advice anyone can give me on improving my resume.

Tear it to pieces. Thanks for the help.

I would suggest moving your education up to the top

Thanks for the look. I guess the "xxx" cover-ups make this unclear, but chronologically, graduating from college occurred longer ago than my work experience. Would you suggest moving that section up to the top, regardless?

In my opinion, I would move the education to the top just because it's standard and what I've always been told. If you can, I'd add a very small section for your interests. Provides a talking point

I've been out of college for 3-4 years now; it's what the hiring manager would probably be least interested in.

I have the CFA stuff first because it's probably most relevant.

Work experience (in chronological order) following that because it's probably going to be what I talk about/get asked about most.

Education last because it really doesn't matter to much at this point in my career. Maybe I'd put it up top if I went to harvard or MIT, but I didn't, so I'm probably going to leave that at the bottom.

Any feedback on the work experience section would be helpful.

Space for your work experience -- it's giving me anxiety. Are you able to narrow down some of those bullet points?
