Event Details
With the aging demographic and shrinking finance industry in certain areas, how do our CFA charterholders stay relevant.  Those in front office could be contemplating a move to transition to more stable and emerging middle office functions like compliance and risk management.  In this competitive job market, new employment tools like social media are increasingly important in attracting prospective employers.  Those in mid-career situations could need to keep up with such new technologies especially with the emergence of FinTech.  Our Career Conference would include where the new job opportunities are, how to prepare yourselves for such, including sharing by panelist speakers who have successfully made such transitions in the format of interactive panel sessions.
Don't miss this great opportunity to talk to hiring managers, recruiters and successful practitioners of the finance industry!
