Hello, I'd really appreciate some advice as I have a lot to consider. I'll try and keep it short. I'm a corporate pilot, been flying for over 16 years. It's been an amazing ride but the work conditions in my business keep deteriorating. It's been a lot of fun but being constantly on the road is taking its toll. I'm never home and have not had a designated day off in 5 years. I'm flying more than ever and see no light at the end of the tunnel. No real job stability and I have no career backup. While my passion for this industry is long gone I am very passionate about trading. I've long had an interest in the markets. I trade actively and enjoy studying and learning about it, the markets and economics. I'm considering leaving aviation and going back to University to finish a bachelor in Finance. And complete any necessary further education such as a Masters or financial certifications. By the time I complete my education and would start looking for work I'd likely be around 43 years old. Going from a jet captain with a comfy lifestyle back to school will be a huge hit, but I increasingly feel that I may need to do this. I have a few questions whose answers could be real helpful as I consider this: 1) I love the markets. I love to trade. I like to strategize and analyse. With that in mind what are some specific jobs in finance that I should consider shooting for. Portfolio manager? Market strategist? Financial analyst? A good one for the long run. 2) Any advice considering I'd be new to the business in my early 40s. I assume age is no factor, competence is. But if you have any opinions I'd appreciate it. 3) Any suggestions on the education that I'll require. A bachelor as a minimum, I expect that I'll need a masters plus some specialty certifications. I like economics but seems like finance is the way to go. I prefer practical vs theoretical. 4) Does the ranking of the University matter in the end? I'm in Canada. I'm hoping to do it at the University of Toronto, Canada's best business school. However scheduling and costs may mean I have to do it at an average school. 5) For those in the business.. What do you find the job satisfaction in the long run is? I can tell you in my business it's low. This career is awesome in the beginning but it slowly grinds at you. Especially as you get older and you can't be there for your family. I know many that have left and are happier for it. I'd appreciate any suggestions. Especially regarding which specific job to shoot for for someone that simply loves the markets. Thank you in advance!!! And happy trading!
