Peter’s Answer

The profession I chose was in Finance, I chose this career primarily because I really enjoy working with numbers. Most company's require a Bachelors Degree in order to be hired as a Financial Analyst, with an emphasis on Business Administration/Business Management. Prior to working with LS&CO, I worked for the Department of Defense as a Training Manager for 13 years and served in the US Army for 8 years prior to that. A Doctorate of Business (DBA) would be something that you would likely need to weigh out, as the majority of upper echelon jobs in the financial sector can be achieved with a Masters Degree (MBA). I was in a college program and did need to come back to complete my degree from the time I had initially started. I did not shadow and other professionals during this time nor was I a part of any clubs. I did not struggle too much with any subject in school but was never a fan of English overall. I learned how to prioritize work requirement s along with the importance of organization on my way to gaining my profession. These are both skills that I feel are a required in the financial sector in order to succeed and potentially grow in this field. If I could go back, I would have certainly obtained my degree sooner rather than later, it is so much easier before other life events come along like marriage and children. Lastly, I did not do any internships, thank you for the opportunity to help you with this, I greatly appreciate it!
