Hey Finance Heads, I pose a question (Series 7, 63, 66)

post #1 of 4

Hi,

I am desiring my Series 7 and 66 probably, obviously you have to be sponsored in order to take the tests. Of course you have to get into Financial Advising in order to get sponsored, such jobs which are not too hard to get, since they are commission based.

Here's the thing...I have little interest in getting into Financial Advising with a company at this point in my career, but I want the certifications...what are the stipulations companies put on when they sponsor you? I'm assuming I wouldn't be able to just get hired on with them, then take the tests then quit...or how does that work?

I see no value for these certifications outside of needing them for a job. In addition, they expire after two years of not working for a broker.

I haven't heard of any lock in/stipulations at investment banks.

Don't waste your time. If you land a job that requires them, the tests are easy enough that they won't be an issue - no reason to get them in advance of needing them.
