In this session, Robin Koroluk and Jordan Wilson discuss the CFA designation and career paths.
While CFA does stand for “Chartered Financial Analyst”, it can also easily mean “Careers For All”. CFAs come from all educational and technical backgrounds. CFAs are employed in all types of roles in all types of business sectors. There are enjoyable careers available for all backgrounds, interests, and personalities.

What is a “Financial Analyst”?
Is it all about crunching numbers in a back room?
Or is there more to financial analysis than just numbers and calculations?

Do you need a finance major or even a business degree to have a successful career in finance?
If you have a non-finance education, is it possible to become a CFA and work in finance?
If you have another professional skill set, such as accounting or law, can a CFA add additional value?

Are all CFAS back-room introverts? Are there any finance roles for extroverts or those in-between?
Do you want a stable “9 to 5” job or do you crave non-stop excitement with lots of job pressure?
Do you prefer consistent salary and compensation?
Or do you want to “eat what you hunt”?
As the title states, Chartered Financial Analyst, yes. But also “Careers For All”.
