Day in the life of
Financial Analyst – Adam Garcia
As a financial analyst, I can assure you that a single day’s routine cannot describe my professional life. My day at the office is stressful at times and the other times I enjoy it a lot because I have a lot to learn about, especially when I have to analyze the research and discuss the data with senior financial analysts. An average day begins at 5:30 in the morning watching the news about the industry and ends at 10:00 at night.
The tasks that I perform most frequently include data gathering, financial modeling, spreadsheet maintenance, and communicating the details with clients. However, the intensity of these tasks varies each month and each year. All the data I gather is shared with senior analysts as well because they use this data and information to develop new business strategies and ideas for clients.
