Exploring This Job

Read books such as Mutual Funds For Dummies (For Dummies, 2016), by Eric Tyson, to obtain a good introduction to the types of funds, investment strategies, and related topics. As a high school student, take as many marketing, sales, business, and economics classes as possible. Join a high school or college chapter of DECA (http://www.deca.org), a nonprofit organization that hosts competitions, leadership training programs, and educational conferences for students who are interested in careers in marketing, finance, management, and hospitality. If you’re in college, consider attending the American Marketing Association (AMA) International Collegiate Conference to participate in professional development opportunities, networking events, and competitions. Visit https://www.ama.org/events-training/Conferences/Pages/AMA-International-Collegiate-Conference.aspx for more information. Information interviews with wholesalers and other marketing and advertising professionals are another good way to learn more about the field and make industry contacts.
