Recap: Career Day 2015

The FPA Career Development Committee hosted its 9th Annual Career Day on Friday, February 27 at The Doubletree - Minneapolis. As in years past, we had an engaged audience comprising of over 30 students and career changers. Attendees participated in round table discussions, mock interviews and resume reviews throughout the day while participating employers conducted interviews. The keynote speaker was Sabrina Lowell, CFP®, CFO of Mosaic Financial who shared her career path and offered great insight into the industry for anyone looking to explore career paths in planning, whether student, career changer or employer. The lunch panel discussion comprised of Ben Wacek, CFP®, Wacek Financial Planning, Ellan Krubsack, Fure Financial, and Amanda Moore, Cornerstone Wealth Advisors.  They shared their experiences of their first years in the profession and offered career advice.

The Career Development Committee thanks the following employers - JNBA Financial Advisors, Clifton Larson Allen LLP, Carlson Capital Management, Waddell & Reed, Financial Designs, Inc., Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, Lawing Financial, MetLife Premier Client Group of the Upper Midwest, Heritage Wealth Architects, and Ameriprise Financial.
