Finance Careers Overview

Finance Careers Overview

Working with money seems like a pretty ideal job, so it makes sense why finance is such a booming industry. But even though careers in finance might be rewarding, that doesn't mean they're necessarily easy. With finance jobs, professionals are expected to have a strong understanding of economic patterns, keep up with the state of the investment industry, and have a knack for saving and spending money wisely.

Finance Education

Finance careers by their very nature require a solid education of market economies, investment banking, and business operations. Since most skills required are so advanced, most types of finance jobs will require at least a Bachelor's degree. For higher-end job titles like Financial Examiner, Management Analyst, and Financial Manager, applicants are also expected to have on-the-job training and/or work experience in a related occupation.

As financial exchanges continue to cross over into the digital realm, employers might also expect their applicants to have experience or certification with cyber currency and widely-used industry digital tools.

Finance Job Market

As our economy grows more and more complex, the Finance Job Market experiences a consistently healthy amount of growth. Unfortunately, not all areas of the industry flourish in sync. A recent study from Michigan State University's Collegiate Employment Research Institute predicted a slump in the financial services job market based on responses from close to 6,500 hiring managers and recruiters.

However, a few finance careers are outshining the others, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics The job market for Meeting, Convention and Event Planners will increase by 33%, Market Research Analysts by 32%, Personal Financial Advisors by 27%, and Cost Estimators by 26%.

Finance Salaries

Money is always the bottom line in the finance industry. The median annual salary for some of the most popular careers in finance ranges from a minimum of $67,000 to a maximum of $110,000. Depending on the complexity of the job itself, it's likely that finance professionals could even earn much more. One of the best perks of working in the industry is having a better understanding and access to stock markets and other investment opportunities.
