have an offer to work at Prudential selling life insurance with a direct path to become a financial advisor but have an interview with Bankers life for the exact same thing. Would anyone have any input to which company i should choose?

    Pass on the life insurance gig. They are giving those away to anyone that applies. Find a broker dealer or bank that has a training program. Once you get licensed there’s lots of opportunities. It’s hard to find solid licensed associates.

      Wouldn’t there be a benefit to at least obtain a license from selling life insurance and move onto somewhere like a brokerage or bank after I have more relevant experience? It’s worth to mention I’m currently working towards an undergraduate degree currently.

    I would for sure go with prudential if you’re looking for an answer to your question. But honestly I would look into the XY Planning Network first.

      I’m not planning on leaving completely. They’re paying for college in full. There just isn’t much opportunity to advance within the next few years into a salaried position.

      I’m in an entry level position in the parks now and there isn’t much room for advancement with the recent expansion.

      You’re going to be selling insurance door to door or chasing ambulances. If you want to be a financial advisor your better bet is to go through a major bank. Most of the big banks, Chase/BofA/JPM have a path to becoming an advisor within their centers. If you can’t sell credit cards you won’t be able to close million dollar business so it’s a good way to cut your teeth without going full commission.
