 Could anybody enlighten me on what a college graduate with a Bachelor's in Finance can do, especially if the student doesn't have any internship experience. A number of people suggest BA/QA courses or some of those programming courses but my knowledge on computers is limited to MS Office package....

Most probably not, still, what could I do? 

I just received 3 phone calls from Indian consultancies who'd train me for BA/QA courses but would charge me for it.....they offered job placement help....but I don't know if its a good idea...

Does anybody have any clue?

 dolphin, 

It seems like they only take college grads with Computer/Engineering majors. 

Riten bro, 

Since I need not worry about maintaining my status, I'd rather look for a job or something right now instead of going to do my MBA. MBA is damn expensive too. 

I called a few Indian companies in Texas and California, seems like they all want 1000-2000 bucks for their training - something I'm not sure if that's worth paying for...

 Bidroh, from what you have mentioned about not being worried about maintaining status, I assume  you are not on a student visa but are a PERM or Citizen. If thats the case, lemme tell you something, if you have a Finance degree from a decent university with a good GPA and do not need work authorization to work, you would not be here in Sajha posting this thread. You should have a job by now. Now unless you graduated from some college that noone knows of or really do not have anything good to show on your resume( be it gpa, internships or any other activities), you are right about joining any DESI consultancies.

Also, to answer your another question about GRAD school being expensive, why don't you think about doing good on GMAT and writing some good essays, so that you can earn some scholarship or maybe even get assistanships. Now if your only intention is to get a job, good luck with that. But like I said, if you have what it needs to get a job, you would not be posting this thread here.

Don't just think MBA...also consider MS in Finance.....the best MS Finance  programs r ones offered by Princeton, MIT and Vanderbilt in that order...u didn't mention abt your undergrad school and your academic performance....but if u have a good GPA, get a good GMAT score and can get into one of the top 5 or 6 MS Finance programs, u should be able to find very good placement even in the current situation in the finance industry.....however, since u r a perm resident, i must say that working after undergrad is the best path in finance rather than going to grad school.....which area in finance r u interested in? have u applied to any finance firms yet??( the big ones r in NY, Chicago and LA primarily)...what abt an internship during the summer coming up?

If I were a fresh 22 year old graduate with Finance degree, I would seriously consider the following:

1. Seek work in the field of finance with firm intention of joining a reputable MBA program 2 years later.
2. Join a reputable grad school in MS or PhD program in Finance or Economics.

I would certainly not waste my time with Indian consultancies.

Here's why:

As a newbie BA or QA contractor, that too from Indian consultancy, you will probably make around $40K per year.  You will also probably have limited career advancing prospects in that situation.

However, if you graduate from a Top 10 MBA program, you will immediately start out with six figure salary.  Furthermore, your career prospects will be in totally different stratosphere -  I am talking about someday becoming a multi-millionaire industry captain.  I know that is quite a leap, but you will have that option to consider and shoot for; something that would not be even available to you as a BA from an Indian contractor.  I am not saying BA contractor is a dead end job.  It does not have to be.  But why go that roundabout road when you have the option of choosing more direct  and focused path.

Similarly, with Phd, you have the option to be in the academic circle or in the industry; both will pay you handsomely and the career satisfaction to boot.

So, take a deep breath, sit back, relax, and THINK !  We are the product of the choices we make.

Riten, your advice is good but my GPA or my work experience aren't that significant, so to speak. Shit happened during my college years that really proved detrimental and while its a no-brainer to get into a good MBA or even a Graduate Degree Program, the main issue is, I don't qualify for one! Same with jobs added with the current economic condition.
