Our office culture aims to give individuals an opportunity to build authentic relationships with advisors and staff. We are a team that supports and helps one another.

College Financial Representatives are required to attend client meetings with current financial representatives, so they can begin learning the roadmap to financial planning. Over time, they will see the diverse ways that financial representative’s run their meetings and build relationships with clients. The confidence you develop, coupled with insight you have gained as a college financial representative, can put you on the path toward a profitable and fulfilling future.

  • Practical guidance in your career selection process
  • The chance to develop networking and business relationship skills with the help of a mentor
  • Flexible work schedule
  • Securities registration and state licenses for life, health and accident insurance
  • Compensation in the same manner as a Full-Time Financial Representative
  • An opportunity to try out or get a head start on a career as a Financial Representative

One out of three former interns become a Full-Time Financial Representative following graduation. Our internship will give you a solid foundation of business-building skills and knowledge for immediate and future career success.


We Support You

Our Managing Director, Eric B. Waggoner, and Managing Partner, Mitchell B. Glover, were both former College Financial Representatives. They credit their personal and professional growth to mentors they developed on campus and during their internship experience.
