Finance career paths have the potential to range from the ordinary to the extraordinary, striking just about every pay grade level in between. One of the most profitable jobs in the world of finance is that of the hedge fund manager. Not designed for the faint of nerve, the job of the hedge fund manager can be a physically draining, emotionally taxing, and monetarily rewarding venture. Stories of 20-something hedge fund managers earning millions of dollars a year are not uncommon.
As in any business, this level of monetary earning is dependent on the individual's skills—the life of a high-level performer is one lived with extreme drive and intense competition. Fortunately for many, the field still provides ample opportunity for earnings at a much higher level than other finance occupations. Connecting with a recruiter is the best way for qualified applicants to find work in this highly lucrative field.
