But perhaps being an investment banker is an option.
According to an article in Fierce Finance,
<<Investment banking paid an average weekly wage of $8,367, compared with $841 for all private sector jobs, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said in a routine report issued Thursday.
The report also showed how far ahead hedge fund managers are of other investment bankers in making money.>>
Remember though, if you want to compete for these jobs, you must compete on impact to the bottom line and strategic positioning not responsibilities held or things you did.
