Time for my yearly or so thread seeking career advice For those who remember, I resigned a year ago, started a business to invest my own money and signed up for the CFA program. Well a year has passed, did pretty good on the investment side and passed the first 2 levels without a hitch Well now I need a job, financial analyst would be ideal. I've been applying online and going to network events, mainly alumni meetings, without much luck. My plan is to dress up, have a list of employers who might be interested in me, resumes/coverletters in hand, and just visit each one. Especially the ones I applied to before but haven't heard back on yet. I plan to just walk in and ask to speak to the person in charge of hiring and if I can get them, make my pitch. If not, leave a resume/cover letter and thank them. Going to hit up the big cities in TX. Anyone every done anything like this with any success? Any tips? Thanks in advance!
