I have a BS in History and a MS in Organizational Leadership. In the past 4 yrs I have worked(3) as a financial analyst and (1) in financial services. I have a limited securities license, Series 6. I am not getting past jobs that require a BS in any financial discipline. In addition, due to my advanced degree field and work as an analyst, it has been suggested to me to look at entry level consulting jobs at smaller firms. Any thoughts? Thank you.

Hey Johanna, Great to have you in the community. Running fast today but your comment reminded me of various times in my own career arc. Here's the thing - find the people in the industry that you want to work with and take any job you can that gets you into the room with them. Cream rises to the top. I am sure you will kick butt and rise to your proper level of authority/responsibility in the organiation very fast. The point is - early in your career (maybe anytime??) you need to focus on working with the right people who you can learn the most from while bringing value to them. You'd be better off the lowest guy in the room with a coach like Bellichek (hard for this Steelers fan to write that btw) than you would to be a high-level asst.coach in the losing coaches room.
So, yes - definitely take an entry position IF IF IF it is with a company that has the kind of colleagues and management that you can learn form and prove yourself to... Good luck - you've got a lot of jobcasers rooting for you! Fred

Hi Johanna: Thanks for posting to Jobcase! Consulting could definitely be an interesting route, especially if you're a self-starter interested in going to business for yourself. But have you considered going back to school to get a financial degree? It might open up more career opportunities for you.
