FPA of Minnesota Career Day 2015

Are You Looking to Hire? Looking to be Hired? FPA Career Day is designed to simplify the process for you!

Career Day brings together established financial planning professionals and those newer to the industry with a day of speakers, workshops, discussions and interviews. Join us!

For Employers
This is a great opportunity for you to meet and interview top talent among student graduates and career changers.  Space will be limited to the first 10 firms that respond, so please respond immediately to reserve your space.

Expanding your firm by hiring a new employee, whether for an internship or full-time position, is a difficult and time-consuming task. Determining the responsibilities for the new hire, establishing a career path for the individual, and the actual interview process can take months of planning and consideration. Perhaps the most difficult obstacles, from the business owner's perspective, are finding quality candidates, coordinating your schedule with theirs, and then allocating hours of time to actually interview them.

Firms participating in Career Day will have access to the resumes prior to the event and will provide the Career Development Committee with a list of the attendees they'd most like to interview. The schedule provides the opportunity to meet up to ten candidates for twenty-minute interviews.

For Students and Career Changers
Attend this day to learn more about the financial planning profession, meet FPA members, and interview with area planning firms.

The keynote session features Sabrina Lowell, CFP®. Apart from being a Certified Financial Planner, Sabrina is also Chief Operating Officer at MOSAIC Financial Partners, Inc., a wealth advisory firm based in San Francisco, CA. As a long standing member of the Financial Planning Association (FPA), she chaired FPA Experience in 2013 with over 3,000 financial professionals in attendance and previously spearheaded session tracks for the FPA National Conference (2007, 2012). She twice chaired the FPA NorCal Conference (2010, 2011), served on the national Consumer Advisory Group and the Professional Development Advisory Group task forces, and participated locally on the SF FPA Career Development Committee and SF FPA Speaker’s Committee.

As a past President of NexGen, a national organization supporting young financial planners, she chaired its 2008 national conference. As an advisor, her mission is to help clients feel like they have a solid framework for making informed decisions during times of transition, focusing on debt management, comprehensive financial planning, Social Security and Medicare planning. In 2014, Sabrina was named to the 40 under 40 list by Investment News. Sabrina has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal’s Smart Money Magazine, CNNMoney.com, Talking Money with Jean Chatzky, Dow Jones News Wire, Money Magazine, Financial Planning Magazine, Investment News, AdvisorMax.com, Today’s Advisor, The Minneapolis Star Tribune, Investment Advisor, and The Journal of Financial Planning.

Sabrina received her BA in business from Principia College, and holds a Certificate in Personal Financial Planning from the UC Berkeley Personal Financial Planning Program. She has also taken classes through Golden Gate University towards a Master’s in Taxation.

In addition to interviews with planning firms throughout the day, there will be opportunity for roundtable discussions, resume review, mock interviews and networking.
