Career Day is a full day of networking and interviews. We connect employers with potential employees by creating a central meeting place. Our mission is to help candidates get employment opportunities to further their career goals and, at the same time, help employers find their next Star to add value to their firm. It’s a program that helps both professionals.
RSVP at your earliest convenience as spots are limited.
How Does Career Day Work?
1. Students and interested interviewees must send in their resume to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, December 11, 2013, to be considered for interviews. (On the email please note whether you are looking for a full time or internship position and your current status – in school, recent grad, experienced, or career change).
2. FPA DFW Career Development Committee will post the resumes and send the resume website link to interviewing firms for review by Monday, December 16, 2013.
3. The interviewing firms will review resumes and inform the Career Development Committee by Wednesday, January 8, 2014 who they would like to interview. The committee will schedule it for them.
4. The Career Development Committee then provides a schedule to the firm and the student.
5. The job applicant and firm will know the interview schedule by Friday, January 17, 2014.
6. Anyone planning to attend Career Day, whether as an interviewer or interviewee, will need to register online for the event. The registration information will be posted on the FPA DFW website so please check the website regularly for registration and event details. You will find an easy link to all event information on the home page at www.fpadfw.org.
There is no better opportunity for you to get significant face time with numerous prospective employees, network with the FPA DFW chapter membership, and further the profession's brightest minds.
Also, even if a student or firm is not actively seeking opportunities or is not selected for an interview, there are many chances throughout the day for networking and ad hoc interviews.
We look forward to having you and students at this event as we begin to "Bridge the Gap between Student & Professional." Should you have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com .
What can the FPA internship program do for your financial planning practice?
"The work that interns have provided to Strategic Financial Planning over the last 5 years has been invaluable. What started out as a desire to help college students and career changers 'dip their toe' into the financial planning world and see what it's all about has turned into something that our firm routinely relies on. The passion that these interns bring to the industry is always impressive. With the continued growth and improvement of the CFP Board-Registered programs, their knowledge many times matches this passion. If our industry is going to continue to attract some of the best and brightest, I think it's important that we share our knowledge and experience for the betterment of us all."

"I have found that the use of interns is extremely valuable in that not only are we accessing bright, young talent but we are getting an opportunity to see how they work with our firm, clients and we are able to audition them for possible future employment. This gives us an opportunity to evaluate their work ethic as well as their ability to multitask--an essential skill in a small financial advisory firm. I have also found that I am getting good value from the work they are able to complete in exchange for spending time mentoring them concerning our profession."
