Mark asks…

What kind of career possibilities are there that involve giving financial advice?

I am interested in finance and investing, and am currently in school for business. I am unsure of what career possibilities await me after graduation though.

I was considering positions like: investment adviser, financial adviser, tax consultant, financial planner, etc

I would like to be giving advice, but not putting huge pressure on my shoulders (ie- I don’t want to physically make the decisions of how to invest others’ money)
I like researching different ways to invest that would avoid high taxes, and other ways to maximize returns

I would like to stay away from sales as much as possible, as I don’t want to sell a product I might not necessarily believe in; and sales really isn’t my thing. I hear that financial planners is really only 5% planning/researching, and 95% sales/marketing

I will say that degree in economics or diploma in business management would be enough for you to get a job in financial sector. Or to become a stock broker, after graduation you have to apply for a sixth month training program provided by any stock broker firm. There are many job opportunities available for financial advisor you can take job in banks, university and some MNC which give very good salary.
