Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Program

As a current Level 1 candidate, I am interested to find out if the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation carries any weight in the consulting industry - specifically with regards to gaining employment in a strategy consulting firm or department.

My education is arts focused with close to six years experience in online marketing and advertising (currently in the IT security industry) - any further advice for up-skilling would be greatly appreciated.

Hows it going Andrew?

I'm sorry but I don't have a answer to your question. But I do have a question for you. I just recently graduated college with a corporate finance degree. I want to become a CFA. Ive been on several job interviews and all employers have been telling me that CFA's usually have accounting degrees. I am now thinking about going back to school for the accounting. Do you think I should do so? or should I start working for the CFA. I was hoping that I would at least find a job before I start taking the exam. I have no experience either. What kind of jobs should I be looking for?

Thanks for your help.

Have a look at www.aimr.org - this is the organisation that administers the CFA designation. There is a breakdown of candidates by background at: http://www.aimr.org/cfaprogram/cfaprofile.html

As far as work experience is concerned, I would suggest finding employment now rather than later as the designation is only awarded to candidates with a minimum of 3 years experience in the financial services industry in addition to successful competion of all 3 examination levels. Hope this helps - there is plenty of info on the site I mentioned.
