You might have just graduated or maybe that date is soon approaching. Whether your degree is in accounting, economics or finance you should have no problem finding yourself a steady career. There are many different finance careers out there. All you have to do is track them down and show them what you have to offer their company.

But where do you begin to look? Finance jobs are normally found in large financial institutions or mega corporations. You could be an underwriter, a financial planner, an analyst or an accountant. The choice is yours. You want to make sure that the field you enter is one that you feel comfortable in as that is part of the key to success.

If you are still in college you could help decide which direction is the best for you by speaking with your professor. He or she has worked closely with you and knows your skill set. It is important to have a third party look at your ability to help determine exactly what line of work you should look into. Banking jobs vary so you want to narrow your options a little so that you do not become overwhelmed and end up going in the wrong direction.



Another thing you might want to do is to focus more on a company than on a particular job title. While you want to know what jobs you would be best suited for, you want to leave a little wiggle room, especially since your goal should be to land a high paying job with a firm and secure company.

You also want to make sure that you are using your networking skills to find the finance jobs that you want. Attend career fairs and seek out internships. You also want to make sure that you are adding the appropriate keywords to your resume when looking for banking jobs. If you have little work experience in the finance world, this may appear to be impossible. Luckily for you, it's not that hard. All it takes is a little creativity.

What you can do is use non-related work experience and focus on your accomplishments within those jobs. Focus on skills that are transferable such as leadership. Once your resume is complete, you will be able to start looking for solid finance jobs. You have probably been waiting for this day for a long time.

One thing that you will want to remember is that a job is a job. No matter how high paying it is or what degree you needed for it, it can be tough to find. Even though there are a lot of job openings, there are also a lot of people looking to snag the same job you are. This means that there is competition, which is why you want to focus so much on your resume.

You have one shot to get your resume for finance careers noticed. Only a certain percentage of the resumes an employer receives will get called in for an interview. You want to make sure that you are apart of that percentage. The sooner you get started the sooner you will find yourself in the career that you have always wanted.
