Do I need to be paper qualified to join this industry?
Never too late to switch. Our government are also encourage people in the 40s to have a career swtich too, and you should be in your early 20s.
Financial industry is a little tricky. There are certain basic skills that must be learnt in school. Do consider getting your paper qualifications. In the meantime, please also try to see if any company is willing to hire a junior positon and is willing to teach and guide you as well.
Good luck. :)
It's never too late to pick up a new skill and apply it in your career of choice.
Ideally, it's important to know which career path you would like to embark on base on your personal interests and passion before making a decision and acting on it.
Having the necessary academic qualifications may only get you through the door, the rest is about gaining work experiences and applying the knowledge you have.
Stay focus and go for it.
No, it is not too late as you are still young. Perhaps you could take up a course in finance to see if you really like finance before deciding on what path to take. Just my humble opinion.
It depends which specific area are u refering to. If u are refering to sales (personal sales), then there will just be some regulatary papers u need to take. Those are fairly simple.
If u want to go into corporate, then you probably should try to get a degree.
You have not started on your career, so it is still early. =D
