Career Success in the New Work Environment for Investment Professionals

I had an interesting read about Career Success in the New Work Environment , available at the CFA Institute website, which focuses a lot on self awareness, awareness of the environment and career planning and navigation. The e-book also offers interviews with successful finance executives to understand their career decision making processes, as well as detailed scenarios of how different finance professionals carve out their careers amid achievements and disappointments in both their career and lives.

Apparently, work-life balance is not a given, but a cause of sacrifice at times. It is an outcome based on the work culture of our employer and our personal decisions. Something we must be responsible for, the benefits and the costs.

Though written mostly from a Western work ethic and culture, some points remain close to our hearts. The big fives of personality fits to the need to be pro-active in planning our careers or in allowing big events to steer us on a different path.

If you are short on time for the 120 page content and the subsequent 100 pages of interview Q&A with top executives, the CFA website also offers link to key portions of the book where key actionables and tools allow you to start planning your career.

A recommended read.
