Working in finance can be an exciting and profitable career choice. The industry is secure, with businesses and individuals looking for specialists to manage their money safely, analyse budgets and protect their savings ensuring the best returns on investments. Often highly paid, jobs in finance require an individual who is trustworthy, competent and always willing to learn. These careers can also flourish from home as well as a company office.


Casino gaming

Some casino games have poor odds, but these can lead to bigger wins if you play well. Keno is a simple game with low odds, but players who have a comprehensive understanding of keno strategies and are able to make the most of any promotional bonuses on offer can include the game as part of a successful gaming career. Online Keno games offer more generous promotions than brick-and-mortar casinos and use a Random Number Generator to select numbers.

Trading stocks

If you are ambitious and patient, you can make a career in trading stocks. There are few barriers to starting since you need little to no personal capital. Trading can be a full-time or part-time opportunity and you can choose to be a pattern day trader from home or work as a contractor for a trading firm. With trading open across the globe 24/7, all you need to do is find the right market for you. The foreign exchange (forex) or currency markets are a popular opportunity for many since accounts can be opened for as little as USD100.

Investment professionals

Investment professionals create mutually beneficial partnerships between those who need funds and investors who are willing to supply the resources. Highly skilled individuals, investment professionals must be licensed to work, with excellent communication, negotiation and critical-thinking skills that ensure that their suggested investment strategy works for all parties. Investment professionals include financial analysts as well as endowment and fund managers who work for an investment firm or foundation managing a large portfolio.

Corporate finance: financial analyst

A career in corporate finance means that you handle the finances of a particular company or organisation. This means involvement with budgeting and planning as well as liquidity, including cash management. Those in corporate finance do not work on deals, but are responsible for financial planning and analysis and do not work on “deals”.  In times of economic downturns, many investment professionals look to corporate finance as a more secure, reliable career path.

Financial planning and advice

Financial planners meet with a client directly to create a plan for personal funds or business finances. In this career, professionals need to be familiar with financial law, investing practices and insurance policies.


Banking is a good entry-level career option for someone looking to get into the financial field. Commercial banks offer a wide range of financial services and a variety of roles from marketing director to bank teller and many others. Working in a local branch can lead to promotion to head office or a broad range of other career opportunities both within the financial industry or elsewhere since it shows experience of interpersonal communication, customer service and administrative skills.
