On the contrary, i don't think you should do your CFA. Rather, i think you should just apply to any financial institutions. They will sponsor your CFA anyway if need be. Because you are a fresh grad, banks will train you from scratch. But the difficult part is getting in.

If you like analysis, it's best to get into risk management or research. Everyday is spent looking at industries, companies and analysing each aspect of the business. A fresh grad in a good offshore bank can earn a pretty good starting salary.

Go apply to the different banks, do your homework by looking at forums and websites about different banks, cultures and what the jobs are like. Last but not least, make sure you keep up to date by reading bloomberg, financial times and the financial pages of the newspapers.
