I've been trying to get a job as a financial analyst since i graduated college in may 2012. Before now i had no experience of any sorts when it came to finance. I have recently obtained a job as a Revenue Agent (Tax Collector) for the state. Would the experience i am getting here be relevant to a financial analyst or am i just wasting my time? Also what are some of the job duties of a financial analyst (day to day? Do companies offer training or are you just thrown in? Thanks for the help.
