Financial securities advisers, also called financial planners, help clients manage their money. They listen to their clients' goals and needs to develop individualized financial plans and recommend securities that might benefit the client. Financial securities advisers need to have excellent customer-service skills and must be experts in investing and managing money.


Entry-Level Prerequisites

Securities regulators don't have any formal education requirements for securities advisers, but most employers require that you have at least a bachelor's degree for entry-level jobs. Your degree can be in any subject, but a major or coursework in areas like finance, math, accounting, economics or business will give you an advantage over other job-seekers. You'll need to obtain one or several licenses to sell securities. These licenses require that you have relatively clean personal, professional and criminal backgrounds. Factors that may negatively affect licensing decisions include arrests or convictions, regulatory actions, bankruptcies, civil actions and judgments resulting from customer complaints against you.


Landing the Job

Financial advisers typically work for banks or financial planning firms. These employers look for candidates with good financial sense, even if they haven't used those skills in a professional capacity, so you want to emphasize your experience planning finances for yourself or family members on applications or during interviews. Mention cars or homes you've financed, your investment success or financial difficulties you've overcome, if you lack more traditional qualifications. Financial planners may also choose to work independently. Approximately 25 percent of financial planners are self-employed, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Required Licenses

Financial securities advisers typically need to pass the Series 7 and 66 exams. The Series 7 is a 250-question, multiple-choice test that enables you to sell most types of securities. The Series 66 is a 100-question, multiple-choice test that enables you to work as a securities agent and investment adviser. The primary requirement to sit for these exams is sponsorship by a securities company -- usually your employer, though if you want to work for yourself, securities firms may still sponsor you as a representative of their firm. If you also want to sell insurance products, you need to obtain a license from your state board of insurance.


Career Outlook

The BLS expects the number of financial adviser positions to grow by 32 percent through 2020, more than double the national average for all occupations. Nevertheless, you should expect competition for these jobs, due to the minimal education requirements and attractive earnings potential. The BLS estimates the median annual wage of financial advisers to be $64,750, excluding bonuses. Financial advisers who demonstrate leadership skills move into management positions, which may require a master's of business administration degree.
