Terence’s Answer

Finance careers require a strong grounding in math and an understanding of economic principles. Within the field of Finance, there is a whole range of jobs that you could go into - financial analysis, investment, banking, market analysis, portfolio management, etc. Basically, there is every a job for virtually any profile on the spectrum.

The key to me is to understand what drives you and what interests you, then combine them with the education required (math/econ for example) and build experience. You may be more analytical and more interested in the understanding gains/losses, that is completely opposite from interacting a lot with people in the finance sector and building understanding/knowledge. Your own interests and passions shape what a "dream job" really is.

From the start, you'll need to build that foundation in math. Talk to teachers, advisors, or trusted family members to understand what interests you. Post college, try to gain exposure and experience in the finance sectors that interest you. From there, you'll see the varied roles in that particular field.
