Hi all.
I worked as a financial analyst for a small consulting firm my first 3 years out of college (2011-2014) before switching into product management in the telecommunications/Internet software sector. While I have no immediate I have many reasons for exploring the CFA track, I have no immediate plans to return to the financial sector, I would like to have the designation for down the road in terms of other career options or to possibly leverage with my information technology background.

This is not something I take lightly. Judging from your posts, I recognize I have no small task ahead of me. In addition, I do not have a profession that offers some levels of synergy to my regular studying and preparation.

Your comments and insights are sincerely appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You can do it. I'm an automotive dealer market planner and don't work in financial services whatsoever and I'm taking level one in June. It's a huge undertaking, but if you're dedicated and serious, you can do it.

I passed! I did not get a chance to tell you before the exam - but your site was excellent. I will definitely take it next year for Level II.
