Please ellaborate on what you enjoy doing and what you enjoy reading about within the realm of finance. There are two sides to finance (banking industry); 1) the buy-side and 2) sell-side. The difference between the two is that buy-sider walks into a store with money in their pockets (assets) and has the ability to purchase different financial products and services (investment manager) while the sell-side is behind the counter offering these goods/services (financial products; research reports, options, stocks, bonds, derivative, prime services, fx etc.).

Financial industry is very broad and has many departments such as Finance/Accounting, Legal, HR, Investor Relations, Event Planning, Research, Sales, Trading, Banking and Operations.

Good luck.
