Navigating the job hunt with a CFA charter
Hey guys and girls from around the world,
I decided to open a new question thread as I am feeling confused on a daily basis and I thought others have experienced the same thing and might help them as well.
To the point - I am a charterholder since 2016, living and working in Bulgaria. I hold a Bachelor's degree from a Bulgarian university and instead of MSc / graduate degree, I decided to pursue the CFA designation. Now I am actively looking for an interesting position in a larger foreign institution where I can truly evolve.
The thing is that I have about 7 years of experience working in investment intermediaries and financial companies in Bulgaria and I am not sure on which position should I focus on.
What is your opinion on that matter? Do you think the big guys will care for my solid experience in a small market or should I focus on graduate programs? If the latter, am I suitable for Associate positions that are focused on MBA students or what?
I would truly value your 2 cents on the topic.
