        • CFA Level 1


        I have joined as a marketing assistant after recently graduating with a bachelors in Economics. I however, want to get into investment banking and I took this job as a means to pay for CFA and FMVA certifications. Is this going to in anyway hurt my prospects when I apply for a job in more finance specific roles after my CFA level 1? I did not want to take a drop as well, so I decided to take the job.

        Honestly speaking, it would be tricky. I would try and emphasize any financial, analytical or investment responsibilities when writing it up in your resume.
