Starting career in Finance
Hi

I did graduation(4yrs) in Information Technology. I took the decision of pursuing a finance career and leave the field of computers near the end of my graduation. For the purpose I started MBA(Finance) and am in the final semester.
One of the bizarre hurdle for my career is at graduation end I started my job not related to any of my studies, just for the purpose of earning. My CV is a complete recipe for disaster i.e. graduation, masters and job all in different fields. I am also eyeing a professional qualification (CMA/CFA) depending on scope.
I want to startoff from scratch in finance but one thing confuses me is which subfield do I choose, how do I evaluate my strengths. Also how and which organizations should I reach having the above conflicts of fields in mind. How do I approach the interviewers while defending my decisions.

Regards
Zeeshan

u should/must seek advice from an educational counselor, rather than from members of this website. u will only end up being more confused. to register with CFA u need a 4 yr bachelor degree. so u should get admission in CFA .

the website of CFA pakistan is http//www.membersocieties.org/pakistan/default.aspx
for CFA exam fee visit this link http//www.cfainstitute.org/cfaprog/register/fees.html

CFa. Fulfill the entrance requirements.
Have a U.S. bachelor’s (or equivalent) degree
Or be in the final year of your bachelor's degree program at the time of registration
(Note proof of degree is required for progression to Level II)
Or have four years of qualified, professional work experience
Or a combination of work and college experience that totals at least four years.
(Note summer, part-time, and internship positions do not qualify)

Meet the professional conduct admission criteria (during the application process, you will be asked to sign statements of Professional Conduct and Candidate Responsibility).
Be prepared to take the exams in English.


2. Sign up for your first exam. Registering for the first exam also enrolls you as a candidate in the CFA Program. This requires a one-time program enrollment fee in addition to the exam registration fee.

i dont know about the tuition fee for CFA. u will have to check with local institutes.
