How Can I Start Working as a Financial Analyst

by Richard C. Wilson on August 15, 2011

If you have decided that the financial analysis field is the field for you, you will likely be hoping to work in the field as soon as possible. In order to start working as a financial analyst as soon as possible, there are a few things you can do to ensure this can happen.

First, you will want to write your resume to reflect financial analysis experience and training.  Having a resume that reflects training and education in your previous field will not be helpful in landing a financial analysis job.  If you do not have formal education or experience in financial analysis, you can write your resume to show experience you have acquired in other jobs that display financial analysis qualities and experience.

Next, get your name out there as someone interested in working in the financial analysis field.  This can be vital in finding your next job.  Be sure to call up those you have networked with in the past or utilize social media sites to get the word out that you are looking for a job.

Lastly, don’t be afraid to take a smaller job that is a step down from what you are ultimately looking for in order to gain useful experience in the field.  You can consider a smaller company to get your feet wet as well. Just getting recent and valuable experience as a financial analyst can be a great way to eventually get your dream job in financial analysis.
