      I am giving my l1 for the third time in december 15

      i am just wondering if i should get a job as well

      i have never had a job and joined cfa straight out of college 
      i am 22 now and my cv is quite plain as well (working on some short time certification courses to bild cv)

      i am just confused if i should join a job in the finance market or should i keep going full time student (i would be going for june 16 when i clear dec 15)

      looking for some senior members to guide me 

      all advice is appreciated

      thanks

      I think work experience is always helpful and can aid internalization of some content in the CFA material. The downside is the limited time you have to study but I hazard a guess that more than 50% of passing candidates have full time jobs so it’s definitely doable.

      My advice would be for you to join a job.
