    One of my school friend did MStat from ISI and he got placed in JP Morgan as risk analyst.
    I have lost touch with him therefore cant give the exact description of his job profile.

    By the way, what do you think of my decision of pursuing ASA as a part of profile building exercise.

    It's good that you are planning ahead and ASA seems to be a good option. Are you also planning to take CFA? How'll you manage so many things?

    Hi Sriram,

    I am already through my CFA L1 and L2 due in next year June.
    Also if you see the VEE requirement for ASA actuary, you need to be CFA L1 & L2 cleared for fullfulling the VEE requirements.

    It's real tough to manage all with a full time job.
    But somehow I am managing it.

    I did an MFE at one of the Ivy League school, and I am now working in a bulge bracket banks on the wall st. - not in M&A though

    I would say that if you just want to get your feet into wall st- and sure in this economy is not an easy thing, MS in Financial Engineering gives you a better credential compared to some 21-year-old kid straight out of college.

    However, this is just to get your foot into the door. From what I am seeing here, people with VP levels above, about 80% of them all have some big titles MBA....

    Hope that gives you some idea.

    Career in Finance with IT profile experience.

    Hello All,
    I am having an IT experience of around 6 years and in my last six years I have worked on finance domain involved in developing and supporting IT infrastructure for some of the global financial institutions. Presently I am working into IT division of a global bank. All my experience in this banking domain has been with the retail segment of banks.
    Now at present I am planning to pursue my career with the investment banking in a couple of years and therefore, thinking of taking up the CFA examinations. But, I am pretty much unsure of the nature of value addition it will give to my profile with my 6+ of experience in retail banking sector.
    I therefore am interested in knowing that if I qualify the CFA examinations(all three levels) successfully what sort of roles in jobs can I apply for and how easy or difficult will it be to get jobs for those roles. Also, I want to know the benefit that I can capitalize with my experience while applying for new jobs.
    If you can help me in providing me your inputs from all your experience on this, it will really help me in taking my decision.
    Thanks in advance!!

    With Regards,
    Arindam.

    Arindam,

    There are many IT engineers who are trying to shift to finance. So the task is challenging but not impossible. I have seen some members of this forum successfully changing to finance.

    First: Learn as much as possible about the various fields in finance

    Second: Try to see what type of job profile really interests you

    Third: Then you can choose the certifications/courses that can help to make the transition

    Hi Rohit,

    If a person is switching his profession (IT to Finance) after 6 yrs then the new job will be at entry level...? So, will the companies think that he is too old to make the switch..... Is there any way to leverage on IT & Project Mgmt exp and grow into Finance sector after spending some time at an entry level position ?

    Hi Arindam,

    After having a six years of experience, you should not switch to others sector. As far as my experience is concern you may prepare for CFA examinations and there are several colleges like icofp provide full time and part time preparation program for CFA. But this certificate would be consider as an ad ons. Now its up to you.
