Finding a job in Toronto
I was hoping for recommendations. I have 4+ years of experience in a Buy-side (Pension Fund) environment in the middle east as an investment analyst. However, the Pension Fund is a very small one (less then USD 3 Billion in Assets) and not a very recognized employer. Prior to this, I was a credit analyst for a regional Islamic bank for 2 years.
My education is a BSc Economics & Finance from UK and an MBA from DePaul University Chicago (US). I have cleared Level 1 CFA & am a Candidate for Level 2 this June. I am 28 years old.
I am going to move to Toronto in August and start looking for work. I wanted to know the best way to approach job hunting and breaking into the Canadian Banking / investment industry. Also, what roles should I target?
Any insight would be appreciated.
