  • Start by developing interest. Then take a course to understand how finance works. Then leverage the people with experience and have opportunities for you in the area you’re learning. 
  • Experience in engineering or any kind of technical skill will come handy if you move to finance. You will have a different attitude to solving problems and financial services.
  • Certification gives you a power boost.
  • Keep experimenting until you get a system that works for you. 
  • Once you develop an interest in finance try becoming the best in it.
  • If you are driven by the idea of finance as a career reduce distraction and focus on your career trajectory.
