When you think investment, you might think “lots of money”. And while it’s true that people who work in investment deal with lots of money (and in some cases make lots of money), not everyone working in investment works with millions of dollars. If you’re interested in a career in investment, here are a few options:

Investment banking is the one that springs to mind most immediately: working with companies and their assets. As a recent grad you’ll likely start out as an analyst and work your way up. This job invites only the best and demands long hours, but pays very well.

You can also become a financial planner, a generalist who coordinates and makes sense of a wealthy individual’s recommendations from all their financial advisors. Depending on the state you may need a license to become a financial planner. Another option is to become a securities analyst and research various companies’ prospects in an industry.

You’ll need a bachelor’s degree and lots of initiative for all of these jobs, as many of them are performance-based, so get your hustle on.
