Staying in the financial industry?

Thank you, just curious of the options available. I appreciate the gesture!

Depending on your company I've seen people move internally from finance to marketing, strategy, insights, sales. It's about networking and making sure your manager is a supporter of yours and willing to say "x wants to move to __" to help that happen. Then once you make that move you can leave somewhere else. Most people stay in finance though. Could always go back for MBA to make another pivot.

I have not seen it done without a MBA. It seems unlikely imo. If you're set on doing consulting then that's your easiest path. But ask yourself what do you want to do after consulting because it's typically not a forever career.

I think one of the underrated reasons the market is trading is algorithms and sentiment analysis. People say they’ve never seen a market like this which is true but tech plays a bigger role than we expect. Many firms literally pick up Bloomberg terminal headlines and electronically buy or sell as a result. This creates higher volume in the market and leads to higher equity prices

Interview feedback: my answers weren’t concrete enough. I answered questions by sharing my work process, then sharing an example from prior projects and in the example I included how I prepare, who I involve, what that looks like day to day, types of required meetings and what is discussed, how I make decisions, etc. I’m looking for tips on how I can address this feedback? I have fulfilled the responsibilities of the role I applied for so I have the experience. Just need to frame it right.

Currently a manager, reporting to VP. There’s a need to fill an open director position, who I would report to instead of directly to VP. I don’t meet the years of experience in the posting, but I have been doing the requirements of that posting in my D2D. I do plan on going to B-school PT starting next year. On one hand I can see how working under a director can be beneficial, where I can learn from their experience and have more time to focus more on my growth while in school. Shoot my shot?
