I plan on graduating in May. I was offered a job with an investment company (to remain nameless). To become a liscened broker you need to have a certification and liscense through the NASD (government). Well this company wants me to pay $777 to take classes (books included) and that is to go to the cost of the test, certification, ect. This will be reimbursed when I pass the test. Some people say it sounds good, family thinks it shady and a bad idea to put that much money into this. I know I will be good at the job, its sales mostly, and it something I will most likely enjoy.

Sales for an investment company is a tough racket (I know how rude i can be on the phone!). The investment houses that I know of have programs either in-house or affiliations with someone and pay for both the coursework and normally pay a stipend during that time (I’m talking about series 6 & 7 testing). It may be different if there isn’t a longer term work track record or for those fresh out of school.
