One of the best things I love about 300 Hours our email write-ins. ​Because we respond to almost every email sent in to our addresses, we get a great sense of what candidates concerns and needs are, and career concerns consistently tops this list. CFA candidates often write in to us about is asking for job advice – with questions such as:

  • What financial roles would best suit a CFA candidate?
  • Are there any suitable positions in their ideal location?
  • How do they tailor their resume/CV to really stand out and get them hired?

Besides advising our readers to the best of our abilities, we’ve worked on and created a comprehensive solution for all of you. 300 Hours Jobs is our tailor-made job portal focusing exclusively on CFA candidates and charterholders. And just for our readers, we also include a free resume/CV review service, so that you can really polish up your profile!

Some companies on 300 Hours Jobs aren’t financial institutions. What’s up with that?
Financial professionals are in demand outside of the financial services industry as well, especially in large corporations. They need CFA candidates and charterholders too! The roles advertised here by non-finance companies are still seeking CFA candidates and charterholders, and can be incredibly exciting and rewarding – they’re definitely worth checking out.

If I upload my resume, is this made available publicly?
Definitely not. We respect your privacy, and your resume would never be shared with anyone unless you specifically tell us to. There are two instances where you can choose to share your resume with employers:

  • You can make your resume viewable by potential employers – that way they can contact you with an interesting role. If you’re uploading your resume only for the free resume review, or just to make job applications simple, that’s cool too. just deselect the option ‘Let Employers Find My Resume’ – and employers won’t be able to .
  • When you make a job application. 

​I have another question that’s not covered here.
