Okay I'm in a bit of a dilemma right now... I'm currently interning at a brokerage/investment firm and I'm not officially working for the firm yet. I am being sponsored by the firm for the series 7 and series 66. I paid those study guides myself and I think they will likely pay for my test fee.

The thing is, after obtaining my licenses, I might move on without accepting a contract offer from the firm, and hopefully get into either PWM or commercial banking or corporate finance at f500.

Does this look bad in the eyes of an employer? The reason I'm asking is because I see all these job positions listed on websites and some require series 7 / 63 / 65. I was thinking that if I stay with this firm to get my series 7, I could eventually tell the potential hiring firm that I already have mine.

Any advice as to how I should go about this?
