Default How to enter Finance related industries with Engineering Degree ?

Just got my engineering degree. But do not really like the job scope of an engineer and engineering pay scale seems to be too stagnant. Anyone care to share any achievement or experience with regards to my thread topic?. Need your kind advise guys.

Hi. I guess you just have to apply for it. I do have friends with engineering majors going in insurance and finance-related consulting jobs.
