How to get into this industry with only sales experience and no degree currentlyO
I am 29 years old and the only thing I currently have is ad sales experience. I do not have a degree nor did I attend a prestigious university to get my measly 54 credits I currently have under my belt. So the question is with the way things have changed so much in this industry how do I even start to try to make my way into it?
I have really started to follow the markets and the financial news a lot more over the past two years but obviously that is not enough. I tried scouring Craigslist for potential broker jobs to at least have a starting spot. But it seems like all those jobs are scam companies or at least companies that have bad reps. But then again in today’s day and age who doesn't?
So am I completely shooting to high here? Or can someone tell me just what my plan of action to start toward a career in the financial world is going to take?
