Stockbroker Careers

Stockbroker careers are not for everybody. Stockbrokers work in an environment that is exciting, but at the same time very fast-paced and stressful. Individuals who work well with this sort of action may consider a stockbroker career. This occupation deals with math and economics. Those interested in a career as a stockbroker should begin learning about this field early.

Granted, in high school many students are undecided as to what they want to do. However, those who know they want a stockbroker career should take courses in math, economics, and business. These courses are excellent with teaching future stockbrokers about investments, risks, and returns.

Joining an investment club is also a great way to become familiar with the stock market. These clubs will likely offer hands-on investment training. They train members on how to analyze stock and ways to determine whether a particular stock is a wise investment. Members may also have the opportunity to purchase stock that has a minimum investment.

Stockbroker careers require a four-year degree from a college or university. Brokers generally receive degrees in finance, economics, or business. Along with obtaining a position with a brokerage firm, stockbrokers must pass a series of examinations. Some firms will hire a stockbroker before they complete necessary exams. However, the employee will not become a registered representative until they have successfully completed general examinations.

Unfortunately, many who begin a career as a stockbroker eventually start careers in other fields. This is a competitive field. Developing an in-depth knowledge of stocks and building a cliental takes time and patience. Similar to sales positions, the first few months to a year are stressful and tiresome. Many new stockbrokers burn out quickly. However, if a stockbroker can endure working long hours and negative responses, they will have a profitable and rewarding career as a stockbroker.
