Brian’s Answer

I have a bachelors degree in finance and it can open up numerous opportunities for you. I would suggest trying to do an internship or two to find what you enjoy. Whether this is financial advisor, an underwriter or on accounting side. From personal standpoint, I have enjoyed mortgage underwriting as you get great satisfaction in helping someone find his or her own dream home. You can find this type of job at banks, credit unions or the government (Fannie or Freddie Mae) and some companies in general have things like credit analysts for risk. If you enjoy helping someone save for his or her retirement you could work for investment banks like Charles schwab, principal financial etc.

Accounting and finance majors can work in all types of businesses. Normally accountants start off in public accounting as audit or tax. Most accountants work up to a consulting job. Finance usually do analyst positions and focus on how to finance the company.
