Financial ModelingQuestion: Are associations important to join as a financial modeling professional?

Answer: Associations are always good to join. They keep you updated on changes within your organization, networked with your professional peers, give you a forum to standout through courses and presentations, and bring job opportunities to you before they go out to the general public.

You definitely should join the Association for Financial Modeling and Educational Technology (AFMET). You would also be well served to take on relevant certifications such as the Chartered Financial Analyst, and join the CFA Institute which is a global association of investment professionals. Additionally, the CFA designation opens a lot of doors because employers know that you have passed certain tests, and meet basic criteria such as relevant work experience, that would qualify you for financial modeling jobs. If you have a background in accounting, you should consider earning your Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) certification.
