Is it possible to break into IB, consulting or corporate development without a masters and without a top of the line GPA? I know I can handle the work it’s just the matter of receiving the opportunity to do so

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.

I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
