There's not enough good things I can say about it. You get the chance to be a professional, you can develop a clientele, you learn hands on things like finance, estate planning, accounting, investing, how to run a real business, and so much more. My only regret in college is that I didn't do more with the internship. I learned 10 times more through the program than I did in any class in college.

Tacoma, WA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The autonomy, resources, support, mentorship, continued education, and ability to make a difference in lives.

Downers

Delayed gratification from the time you meet someone to the time that you get paid on the recommendations you help them implement. The career is very difficult to get started in and build a network of clients. The learning curve is very steep because most of the things that are to be learned for financial planning are not taught in school.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you are long term focused, self motivating, autonomous, hard-working, and persistent, this will be a good opportunity for you. However, if you need immediate results and lack the autonomy to act as a business owner this might be too much of a challenge. You will be asked to step outside of your comfort zone on the daily to continuously grow and learn and you should be okay with challenge.

Sample Interview Questions

How do you like to compensated? Monetarily, Recognition, Leadership opportunities?

Tell me about a time you had to overcome a personal struggle or tell me about a time you took on a lot of responsibility.

Advice to Management

I would prefer the recruiters to focus on the quality of potential interns rather than the quantity, as the more interns who have poor experiences because they are not cut out to handle the internship might have negative things to say about the internship when they were not suited for it all along.
