I am taking the CFA level 1 in June and have no industry experience. I currently have a somewhat lucrative career in a different industry however I would like to pursue positions in the Investment Management field. Will passing the level 1 open any doors? If not will becoming a CFA Charter holder open any doors? Asset/Investment management is my hobby so I find a lot of value in the level 1 material however I would like to get some feedback on future possibilities. Any suggestions, comments or advice is appreciated.
