Earlier this year I was hired by an investment firm as an financial planner. My first priority after I got the job was to get my series 7 license. A couple days after I started to study for my test I was told (by someone at the firm who hired me) that I would not be able to get a series 7 license. He said that this was due to the fact that I had very bad credit and I had written a bounced check a couple years earlier. I was also involved in a business with a partner. After investing 10,000 dollars in the business my partner screwed me and I was left severally in debt. I found the only thing I could do was file bankruptcy. So my question is, am I still able to get a series 7 license? I have bad credit, I have a bankruptcy on my record (I know that this will make the license cost more), and I am still making some late payments to the IRS. The test itself I find easy buy some people have told me that I am no longer qualified to get a series 7. Is this true? Thanks.
