I'm a student in college studying Computer Science, and so far all my internships have been software engineering related. Through some networking, I've gotten to know some wealth management associates at a prominent firm, and am going to aim for an internship for Summer 2018.
However, when I looked up the salary for Wealth Management Associates atand MS, I saw an average of only 65k, which in the Bay Area/New York is insanely low. The 'Wealth Advisor Associates' make even less. Is this information accurate? Do Wealth Management associates get large bonuses? I am trying to determine if the industry is worth pursuing, or if I should stick to software engineering. Also, would there be any suggestions of things I can do to skill up to help secure an internship at the firm?
Thanks for the input and advice.
