Melanie Marshak, a Managing Director within The Execu|Search Group’s Financial Services division, recently served as a guest speaker to students at Pace University Law School. The course focuses on the compliance sector within the field of financial services and covers topics such as: bank compliance, general compliance topics, suitability, AML, FINRA, and SRO regulations.
Melanie lectured a class of second and third year students pursuing a certificate in Financial Services Compliance, providing a firsthand account of:
- The current compliance market;
- Tips on getting a job in compliance or financial services;
- Interview best practices
“This was a great opportunity to speak with students who are pursuing compliance as a second career,” says Melanie. “Not only does this educate compliance candidates on what to expect in the market upon graduation, but this also gives them a better understanding of the types of roles employers are looking for as well as the skills they need in order to stand out against competition.”
