Becoming a Financial Professional

What We Look For in a Financial Professional

We seek talented people to grow with us, people who possess special attributes that afford them the opportunity to earn the respect and prestige of an Equitable Advisors financial professional.

The ideal individual will have:

  • Achievement-driven goals
  • A desire to help others
  • A team-oriented focus
  • Motivation to learn
  • High integrity and professionalism
  • Effective communication skills

To qualify, you should have a strong personal history of success. You should be results-driven, possess unequivocal honesty and integrity, and be motivated to helping others achieve financial independence. Having an educational background in law, accounting, banking, brokerage or executive management will be particularly useful and an advanced degree and designation (MBA, JD, CFP®, CPA, ChFC) are definite pluses.

How to Get Started

Your Professional Growth

At Equitable Advisors, training and development is a continuing process in which financial professionals build their business. We have an integrated training strategy that provides comprehensive knowledge and skills to support Equitable Advisors' expansive offering of financial products and investment services. Training combines instructor-led programs, eLearning courses, licensing and certification, field training and mentoring. Plus, you will be personally coached and mentored by an Equitable Advisors Vice President committed to each new financial professional's development. And while getting off to a great start is crucial, helping you to grow with Equitable Advisors is something that we are just as committed to. We have something called the "Career Path Tracks." This progression model is housed electronically so that you can take the initiative to grow professionally and develop as quickly or as slowly as you want.
