Personal banker at a bank or credit union. You may have to start as a teller but I know some people that have gone straight to the banker. You could sell insurance or financial planning but that business can be very hot or cold.

edit - You would need certifications/licenses to sell financial services insurance that would require some effort

Mihow's dad gives good mustache rides.

You can do a lot with a Finance degree. You are in a better position then a lot of people with degrees in water park management or Polynesian Studies.

World of jobs for someone with a finance degree is pretty big! There are a quite a bit of opportunities you have though. It just takes some time to figure out what you'd like to ultimately do or what roles sound more interesting from the start.

For instance, investment banking, private equity, hedge funds, strategy consulting, corp strategy, etc are very hard to break into. But you can move into them after some time in other roles. Whats great about the type of jobs available for entry also has room at the very top to make a ton of money if you choose to stay.

What comes to mind:

Public accounting. The Big 4, EY, Deloitte, KPMG, and PWC are awesome places to start and provide a host of different lines under accounting. Audit, tax, advisory, corp fin, etc. Known to be boring as shit but ater CPA you can move into industry and be an internal controller and make bucks or you can make partner and be deep into 6 figures. Same can be said for smaller accounting firms like Grant Thornton, but the big 4 def has the best brand names in accounting.

Wealth management. Very easy to break into with tons of firms around but you shoudl shoot for bulge banks with great names like Morgan Stanley and Merrill Lynch. You look assess and manage investment portfolios of high net worth individuals or even corporations. Can rise through the ranks and make killer money. Low stress but its all about the clients.

Corporate finance or accounting. A bit harder to break into because they dont hire tons of new grads or folks with no experience like public accounting but if you can break in, you can go to any company and know that they have those jobs there. You're either the collector of financial data and report to leadership which helps them make business decisions, or youre in corporate accounting where you make sure compliance is always met and keep the company "honest." You can move to more ssexy jobs that'll put you on the path to become a c-suite exec from this position. Can work your way up thru finance to hopefully CFO or can move to other finance-ish teams like strategy, m&a, corp dev, operations, etc. to be more in line with other c-suite roles.

Corporate sales. Big service companies like google, yelp, dropbox, etc or even big manufacturing corporations hire a ton of sales associates to reach out to potential customers to increase their clientele. can be lucrative on its own or use it to get into big companies and work ass off to transition into something that utilizes your degree more.

Thanks for the advice guys Phone Post 3.0

Ted Wasanasan - Explain the degree, AA, BA, MA? If you have a BA, you have a very good chance of landing a very good job. Might have to start from the bottom, but you wont regret it. When my old company closed down, all the people in finance had jobs within a day or so. Everybody else was pinching pennies. Fuck it, grab the ball and run with it. When went to school, paid for the schooling. Why not use it. Good luck brotha.

I'm assuming that it's a Bachelors of Science in Finance. But when you assuming you make an ass out of u and ming.

Combine it with a personal training cert. and work at a gym. Phone Post 3.0

If you lived near the foothills of northern California I could get u a job getting paid like 16 an hr starting out.

Like someone said before I started as a teller at a bank when I was 22. I'm 28 now (no college degree) and I'll make a little over 80k this year. Tons of room to move up but there is a lot of pressure and you need to have a silver tongue. Phone Post 3.0

I'm a brokerage associate. It's like in between a personal banker and a financial advisor. I'm licensed but my company doesn't let me sell the actual investments so I partner up with a financial advisor and get a commission on what I refer over to him. I also do loans and open accounts and am a business specialist in my area.

So salary is only like 54k a year but I do well with commissions and am looking at a promotion in the next couple months. Phone Post 3.0
