During Career Impulse Meetings we are bringing closer the stories of some outstanding CFA Charterholders whose careers did not go in the direction one would typically expect. We show the stories of people who strayed away from a usual finance career and had the courage to go on a completely different journey. Together with these people, we will explore how their journeys evolved since they became CFA Charterholders, what helped them to make a decision to move away from typical finance roles. We will discuss whether CFA Charter is still of the importance to them and what finance skills did they took over to the new role as well as what was it that they still had to learn. Our goal is also to evaluate the impact of being a CFA Charterholder on their success in the current role.
