Career Titles     Major Skills     Web Sites

Many occupations today require a college educated individual who can write and speak
well, solve problems, learn new information quickly and work well with others on a team.
This means that college graduates use their education in a wide variety of fields, and
your future career may relate more to your personal career interests , work values and
transferable skills than any specific academic major. However, the following list contains
a representative sample of job titles of former graduates with a finance major. Use this
as an idea list, and remember that it represents some, but certainly not all, of the
careers you might consider.

Students obtaining employment immediately upon graduation are usually those with
the best college records and a willingness to relocate to find a job. Some of these jobs
also require education beyond a bachelors
