Financial ModelingQuestion: I am very passionate about financial modeling and hungry to succeed; what advice can you provide that would help me channel this energy into actions that are really going to help my career?

Answer: As they say, more important that the desire to succeed is the desire to work hard to succeed. There are no short cuts to success. If you have a lot of passion for financial modeling, that is a wonderful start. Next, you have to translate this passion into garnering as much financial experience as you can. Employers often like to see what you did that was “above and beyond” just passion. If you build complex financial models of your own initiative, or form a society of financial modelers and give out weekly assignments, or hold competitions on innovation in financial modeling within your school or college or amateur professional association, they will see leadership and hardwork backing up your passion, and will likely consider you for strategic positions within the company.
