Shouldn't be difficult. You just need your resume to look like a quant's resume not a software dev's resume.
Yes, CQF will definitely help sharpen your understanding of the kind of models, algorithm and infrastructure you will handle.
Most importantly, soon as your knowledge of the Finance space grows(via CQF), reach out to industry participants and try working on personal projects similar to what they do in the industry.
