I'm not sure if this is posted in the right section, but I will post it here for starters.

I am an extremely indecisive person. After completing my undergrad degree in Finance in 2009, I am still unsure as to what I want to do. Although i've always had an astute interest in the foreign/world markets because they are always changing. I feel that I am a suitable candidate for such work since I like constant change.

I have been applying to a plethora of jobs, nothing too specific, just whatever gets my foot in the door. I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not, although most are finance related. I'm ready to start a career and get out of retail/customer service since I no longer enjoy the work and the commission based pay is very unreliable.

Analytics have always interested me as well. I recently decided to buckle down and start researching what I want to do because I would like to go back to school and specialize. I've come down to accounting analysis or fixed income analysis. Both seem like interesting prospects. I'm interested in the accounting analysis for the simple fact they deal with the ever changing laws based on the GAAP, FASB and local laws and regulations. Not to sure about world markets. Fixed income analyst deal with fixed securities and are more market based. Both also require a great deal of research, which I enjoy.

Which one seems like a more suitable fit for my always changing demeanor? Maybe I am missing some important specifics of both that would also be important in my decision. What are some good entry level positions that I can start to apply to that would make me a suitable candidate for analyst positions in mid-level career?
