Hi guys I read here often but dont post all that often! I was hoping you guys could help me out with something. I have been studying hard over the last few years and so far have done the following
-diploma in international business
-double degree in management/marketing
-post grade in financial anlaysis (doing now, only just did exams today) ill be over half way through provided things go well
I work for a broking and have been for about 18+ months now in the back office. Since working there I have dealt with alot of advisors and some of the guys have noticed I was keen to get into the business and have set me up with a chance to become an advisor which is great!
The only downsides are:
- I am 22 (turning 23 at the end of the year) so very young to be an advisor
- Will need to move interstate (to the opposite end of Australia)
The main issue with moving interstate is I will need to build my own client base up and make my own way
I am meeting with the general manager of the branch to have an interview and need to let him know that I mean business. I need to let them know I will really build a client base and won't sit around and wait for the phone to ring. I was wondering what you guys can suggest? I thought you all would be the best to ask since youv had alot of experience in the industry.
The main thing I am looking for
- Is how do I let them my age won't be a issue
- How would I go about building up a client base when moving interstate? I have a general idea but your help here guys would be really appreciated!
