Transitioning from the bench to finance

Hello all, I am approaching the final years (hopefully) of my PhD candidacy and I would like to pursue a career in financial analysis for a pharma company or an investing firm with a pharma section/division. The problem is that I do not really know how to make this transition from the bench to the cubicle that will be my life. Currently, I am taking business course and plan to take the level I of the CFA exam in June. I know that there is a diversification of career options for PhD’s, I just trying to figure out how to get into finance.

Thanks a million,
