I was bored the yesterday and decided to update my online Monster resume to include the fact that I have my series 7 license. I get home from work and have 8 messages, all from recruiters or brokerage firms looking asking me to come in for interviews. This is a 2 year old resume that hasn't been updated since I graduated college, w/ almost no work experience. Later, I check my email, and have 10 emails (mostly generic) from various brokerage houses asking me to come in....I've never felt so loved Is there a Series 7 Shortage? I have no interest in "selling" anything other than my ability to generate wealth by trading, but it seems everyone is looking for stockbrokers. Anyone who loves calling people begging them to invest w/ you, or for appointments, get your Series 7...you'll have a job in a heartbeat.
