NAPFA: The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors

2011 NAPFA National Conference Scholarships / Career Day

In collaboration with New Planner Recruiting, LLC, NAPFA is holding its second annual Career Day in conjunction with the 2011 National conference. It’s a win-win for both employers and those who are looking in enter the Fee-Only financial planning profession.

Career Day gives students from CFP Board registered programs an opportunity to potentially interview for internships, part-time, and full-time jobs. It gives employers a chance to interview a couple of people while attending the conference.  
This is a terrific opportunity for students to meet and have prescheduled private interviews with some of the industry's top Fee-Only financial planning firms. If you’re a firm owner or principal it’s a perfect chance to interview potential future employees. This is a NAPFA member benefit and there is no cost to participate.

Students should send resumes to and specify in the subject line "NAPFA National Career Day" to have their resume posted for NAPFA member firms attending the conference to review.
