CFA Institute provides a list of job titles that qualify for the work experience an individual must gain to be awarded with the CFA charter; click here for the list. However, be warned that a job title alone is not sufficient.

You must have spent at least 40% of your time utilizing financial data or supervising or teaching those who utilize financial data--for financial analysis, investment management, or other typical financial decision-making processes.

Additionally, your employment with the stated job title must have been full-time; accrued employment from summer, internship and part-time positions do not qualify.
