Is Military experience good for a Finance career?
I am a senior in college and intend to enter the Finance field (As a trader/stock broker and eventually in a Hedge Fund or as a Portfolio Manager).
If I can’t get a job right away I was thinking about joining the military and then going for a Finance job after my first 4 yrs.
I would hope to learn another language (already know english and spanish) and other intangibles that might be appreciated in the Finance field while using the 4 yrs to practice my technical Finance skills.
Is it a good idea? Any thoughts are appreciated.
