I networked my ass off to get my shot in high finance. To get started just join your local CFA society. Take the level 1 at least once and goto as many luncheons as possible. Any even they have you make it and network.

CFA is def a shortcut in.

The Salary Trap - Gift or a Curse

Could a great pay and benefit package be a cleverly placed trap?

Experimented with some interviews at different companies to see what a senior role would pay out. Pretty much in line with what I make now and most of the companies pay less. The company I work at is pretty great with a good team.

What would it take for someone to take a risk with a new employer, if there is going to be no salary increase?
