Though during this Pandemic situation everybody has understood that depending on one source of income is not at enough ,just like only having a bcom degree cannot lead you to have a good life . We need to keep changing and evolve ourselves with the new normal and should learn about how this life goes . When we talk about Finance ,for students who want to pursue there career in finance . First of all they have to understand that only B.com will not help them get a good job in this market for that they need to update themselves with studies that are necessary in this field . Yes with studies I mean to say certifications for entering into this industry such as FRM , CWM , CFA. Though in many finance companies they don’t even ask for degrees but experience and knowledge about that field , so just mugging up also is not going to be enough.
