Need career advice. Trying to break into a finance role, preferably an Analsyt role but I have no transferable experience. I worked as a mortgage loan officer (which is sales) for 2 years after college, but since mortgage is such a niche industry, no hard skills transfer and have no relevant undergrad internships unfortunately. I know I can essentially get any sales job I want in finance IE: financial advisor etc. but don’t want to be stuck in sales forever. Any advice?

If you don't mind sales but don't want to be stuck there, I'd look for a role that offers growth into management within a few years

I also do enjoy numbers/analysis so I would prefer to be within finance. Just didn’t take interships seriously in college

Do I accept the offer I have, which is a good one or wait for the other two to finalize and possibly miss out altogether?
