Pinpoint Employment Opportunities While Taking Your Course
In order to sit for your Series 7 exam, a licensed broker dealer is required to sponsor you. Do your research while taking your course and locate a "sponsor" employer. Some investment firms will hire new employees to perform other duties while sponsoring them for Series 7 licensing. Insurance companies are another viable sponsor option. This requirement is an opportunity for you to get your career moving even before you get licensed.
