Well monkeys, it sure was fun not worrying about the CFA exam for a couple weeks. But, I'm sure that like me, you all got that special email last night telling everyone to restart their freak out until July 23rd. Thanks, CFA Institute, that's just what my summer needs. I remember last year, after finishing level 1, I freaked out fairly continuously until the date the results came out.

Background: 2 years front office experience in derivs sales/market analytics and 2 years in commodities research on a trading desk. Currently in the back office after commodities firm blew up and looking to move back to the front office at current BB. I've been really debating signing up for CFA Level 3. I passed the first two easily and it was definitely a big time commitment. Having not really seen much of a return or difference in the job hunt both internally and externally, I'm hesitant to sign up for Level 3.

I am reevaluating my career path, any input and advice would be appreciated. How are the exit opportunities for a CFA level 3 candidate working in corporate credit ratings at a CRA for the TMT industry (masters/MBA position with client and c-suite interaction)? Prior to this, I worked a few years at a BB in a portfolio monitoring role (financial analysis and internal credit ratings for a leveraged product group). Interested in asset management in tech/media or corporate finance roles at tech/media firms.

Hello! I have mostly posted on Monkey Around and a few other forums here and there. But figured I might as well post here for a brief intro for what it is worth. I graduated from a non-target in 2011 looking to get into AM. Spent a year and a half in Back office doing Mutual Fund and Hedge Fund Accounting for institutional clients of a large Bank that did everything from Private Banking and Personal and Institutional Wealth Management, to custody services. I returned a year and a half later to where I interned in college, a small insurance and financial services firm, where I do Bank
