Career Options in Finance Video Series: Alternative and Future Career Options by Jamie Marsh Finco

Career Options in Finance Video Series: Alternative and Future Career Options

Our fourth and final focus area that we will cover as part of our series is Alternative and Future Career Options. Finance is a very versatile major that prepares students for careers in virtually any functional area of business, so we want to make you aware of careers in industries outside of the finance space. Learn also about future career paths that some finance positions lead into after a 2-3 year time period.

In this video, you will learn more about alternative career paths that finance majors typically pursue. Some examples of specific roles include:

  • Consulting
  • Government
  • Non-profit
  • Sales and Marketing
  • And so much more!

You will also learn about future careers that entry level finance roles may lead to after 2-3 years in the industry. Some examples of these specific roles include:

  • Hedge Funds
  • Private Equity
  • Venture Capital
  • Corporate Development

Do hedge funds and private equity firms recruit at UW? Only a few because these careers are typically entered into after you have gained some experience.

Below are a few examples of consulting firms who recruit on campus. This is by no means a complete list so make sure to login to BuckyNet to search the full database of opportunities.

  • Accenture
  • Bain & Company
  • Boston Consulting Group
  • Huron Consulting
  • Mercer Human Resource Consulting
