I am working in a corporate finance department as an analyst and looking for a good opportunity but only have 6months experience. What should I do to differentiate my self and improve my skill set to land a great job? Any class or course recommendations?

I always recommend doing some research on LinkedIn to see what kind of skills others have in the roles you like. I would also talk to your manager and team to see what could benefit you as part of your development plan

I would research different divisions and see what you might find interesting and apply to that which will probably take you some time and you’ll be at the 1 year mark which is fine

Network with people at work, you are new at your career.. there’s no such thing as great job.. there’s always what interests you and then you align yourself with a group that does something similar to that. For example, Capital requirements for the firm.. that’s a deep hole but if you enjoy it.. you should be with a Capital Strategy team.. My suggestion would be to keep talking to associates, VPs from different teams and see if something sticks.. when something feels rifht inquire abt job openings and if there is any availability.. in corporate setting it’s usually ppl you know and how they see you.. so do your research before you network with someone..

Become proficient in Python. It is incredibly important to help automate and enhance financial processes. Don’t waste your time trying to become a spreadsheet wizard. That would have helped 10 years ago but not today.
