CFA is a strong signal, the CFA society also organises a lot of great events to network! So that’s one good channel which you already pursuing!

Also worth looking into data science teams within funds/banks. Lot of demand there! However you need to have a proper data science background with solid understanding of ML techniques, Deep Learning architectures and NLP + strong coding skills in Python.

Manager gives me hard to solve, complex problems like getting a multi stakeholder project organized. This is not my primary job but the chaos was making progress impossible. I create the solution diagrams, drew up project plan, drove discussions to arrive at tech solutions (the team was in analysis paralysis mode) to land a solution with a hard deadline. When the structures are in place, mgr takes it away from me saying this is not my day job - twice, leaving me angry & confused. Thoughts?

My supervisor doesn’t delegate any work. I’m also in fear of talking to her because she’s always busy in meetings (which I should be part of but left out). A few times when I did try to talk to her, she either cut me off or use other excuses, never really listens and giving no respect. A few people left before me, now I know why and might not have a choice but leave. wish I have more power to deal with situations like this.
