Deciding that you’re ready to change careers can be a daunting task — where do you start?

Maybe you’ve considered a career in finance or maybe it’s never crossed your mind. If you have thought  about a career in financial services, maybe you’ve pictured the Hollywood-esque Wall Street lifestyle with all of its dramatic ups and downs.

With Northeast Financial Network, a career in financial services comes with an intensive training program, a network of experienced financial advisors as mentors, and the ability to create your own work schedule so that you attend the events that matter.

Sound appealing yet?

Northeast Financial Network is different from other agencies. We understand the importance of supporting you through every step of your journey towards a career in financial services.

Still a little wary? Here are four reasons to consider a career in financial services.

  1. We know the importance of sharing experience as new hires arrive.

Typically, the financial services industry is dominated by individuals ages 55+. At Northeast Financial Network, our average age is 40. We know that the more seasoned advisors possess a wealth of knowledge that shouldn’t leave the industry when they do. Throughout our training program, we pair our new hires with experienced advisors as mentors to help you step into your new career with knowledge and confidence.

  1. You make your own schedule.

Once you have finished your training with Northeast Financial Network, you make your own schedule. You choose when you will take meetings with clients, when you’ll be in the office, when you will travel to and from the office to avoid traffic. This flexibility allows you to establish a better work/life balance, which ultimately leads to better productivity in the office and a higher success rate in your career.

  1. You can make a difference for others.

When you work as a financial professional, you are helping your clients plan for their futures. This may mean helping a young family save for their child’s education or an older couple plan their dream retirement. Either way, you are helping people achieve their lifelong goals.

  1. You can make a difference for yourself.

At Northeast Financial Network, we make sure that our financial professionals are prepared for the work as well as prepared in their lives. As a financial professional, you must be financially responsible in your own life before you can help others to become financially responsible. We work hard to help make sure that our associates are going to live their most successful, happiest lives, and then they can pass that success on to their clients. Making the shift to a career in financial services makes a difference to your clients and also to yourself.
