Hello All, 
I am about to graduate this summer with a degree in finance. I am currently interviewing with Edward Jones. Looks Like I will get the position and begin studying for licenses by the end of summer. I am looking to connect and learn as much as I can while growing into a Financial Professional.

They’re more selective than Harvard.

I was at home office a few months back and they actually referenced the Harvard thing. Unbelievable. They said something like 26k applicants and 3900 hired. That doesn’t seem very selective

You should be a CPA, you're not cut out for this career.
I sort of give a fuck.

Nothing to brag about. I actually took a pay cut to start out. I've been in management while working through school. Had to bet on myself. Wink
