Dear Forum Members,
I am an MSc Finance & Accounting graduate (with distinction) of the University of Sheffield. Moreover, I am a CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) Level 3 candidate. I had to take employment in retail sector due to my financial circumstances after I was granted leave to remain as an asylum. My previous and current employers would willingly provide a recommendation/reference letter to my prospective employer.
Despite all of above, I cannot even get the attention of recruitment consultants. Please share your opinion about how real it is for me to set a foot in financial services/investment management industry after this.
P.S. I'm 26.
Thanks a lot in advance for your opinion and advice!
