|Author||Topic: a personal assistant wanting to do CFA...good idea?|
I'm new to the forum so hello to you all :)
After 6 years of working in the bank as a Personal Assistant & and Admin Assistant, I've realized that this is an absolute dead-end job, especially when you do a good job. I can't do it anymore.
I've done about 2 years of my bachelors degreee and I had someone suggest to do CFA course instead. What do you guys think? Should I continue my BA? Or do CFA instead? I think I would qualify for the CFA since I have enough work experience. Would this be a good move to get out of my PA role?
|I'd focus on completing your BA. The CFA requires a 4 year degree plus 4 years of relevant experience (which you may already have.)
Study accounting/finance which will prepare you to take the CFA once you get the degree.
|Doing a full time course in finance would help you in landing up in a job in the industry (may be small time analyst role). Subsequently you can move on to do your CFA and get a better role.|

I just wanted to share the good news that I passed CFA Level I!!! Thank you for your help - I think the online question bank helped cut the clutter and made a positive difference.
