I want to become a certified financial planner. I am currently attending College of Financial Planning. I have five more classes to complete before I take the CFP exam. How can I gain experience in this industry before I separate from the service. I have two years left on my contract.
I agree with John's comments.
You may also consider working part time or volunteer time at a financial planning firm so you can learn more. For example, if there is a 1st Command office near you, call and see if any of the advisors need an administrative assistant. You may be able to learn from the other assistants or advisors before you're CFP certified and maybe get a foot in the door while you're there.
get certified as a financial planner (CFP)
Google for the course and testing information and requirements.
First of all CFP is really a sales job. You have to sell your CFP services to clients just like in real estate or as a stock broker.
