Investment banks hoover up some. Hedge funds are very popular lately (pretty much make the market these days). Sometimes buy side research, a fair number go into sell-side. Depending on what exactly you did at the agency, some people go do credit analysis for a bank, broker, etc. When I wa there, my phone rang continually with recruiters because they knew where they could find bright, underpaid people who have a lot of specialized knowledge.

Generally speaking, it isn't a bad place to go do some time and learn things, its just a hard way to make a living while you are doing it.

I'm a CFA too (new to the boards). August to December is enough time to study for Level 1. Just be dedicated about it and you'll be fine.

Good luck!
