Top Tips for Getting Yourself Known as a Financial Analyst

by Richard C. Wilson on August 28, 2011

When starting out as a financial analyst, or trying to find that first job in your field, you will need to figure out the best way to get your name out there that you are now in the business.  There are many avenues available to the professional today that can help you with this sometime daunting task.

One of the first ways is to get yourself some business cards.  You will want to have professional business cards made using your new title.  Even if you do not have a job yet and are trying to find a job as a financial analyst, having business cards with your new profession on them is important for networking.

Secondly, you can market yourself on social and professional networking sites as a financial analyst.  If you are established in the profession or just getting started, this can be a great way to network and maybe even find a mentor.  And if you are still looking for a job, networking sites such as LinkedIn and Facebook can be a great way to make connections and get some information about potential employment.

Another way to get your name out there successfully as a financial analyst is to join a local organization for your profession.  You can usually find local groups or organizations that have monthly or quarterly meetings.  This is a great way to become active in your chosen career field as well as network and get your name out there.
