AuthorTopic: Shifting from IT

Hi all..
I finished my B Sc in Computer Info Sys, and currently working in a bank as IT Support Eng.I wish to change my job as i find more job prospects and higher paid salaries in my bank for Finace/Investment as compared to IT Dept. I dont find any scope in IT now. I wish to do CFA but i aint sure if i can actually do with no prev experience. But Iam smart and catch up things very fast. Working hard isnít any problem for me.

Now iam confused should I go for CFA or finish my MBA get some base in finace and then do my CFA or do both of them together(kinda silly). If I plan to change job now, I donít think my bank will bother giving me a job in finance empty handed. If I pass Level 1 exam guess that might help me initially get a job. Or shall I wait and finish my MBA. If anyone of you is a CFA or atleast completed CFALevel 1 exam, can you please tell me if a person like me can attempt for the exams,and app how many months prep will be required?

Please help.

your situation is just like me,
am working in the bank even though my B Sc is in IT and i asked my manager to advice me about a good certificate, and he adviced me to start studying for the CFA.
wish someone guides us.
but am here to tell you that you are not alone :)

I am using your study notes and I know of at least 5 other friends of mine who used it and passed the exam last Dec. Keep up your great work!
