Career progression for FEs

Attended a good event at Haas yesterday, focussing on Career paths. I found it interesting, even though I feel like I know some of it by now..But some things that stuck with me were:
  • Buy side has fewer designations, and the org structure is more like a rectangle than a pyramid...
  • Speakers when asked what made people successful in finance, indicated - "fire in the belly" (which is really true IMO), whether you are an "innovator" or a "replicator" (both are important, but the first cannot really be taught in school - either you have it or you dont), and a good bit of luck too!!
