cqf graduate not finding a job

there was discount on the price tag. so no money back guarantee. mfe after cqf? are you doubting the credibility of the cqf curriculum. there are many graduates with unrelated experience who get jobs. so its probably not being based at a financial center and not knowing the right people.

Short term asset/liability ratio < 1, positive yield curve?
