I just graduated and got a BBA and my parents on to me about getting a job.


I want to make a lot of money and this seems to be the job to do it.


The problem is that all the postas make it sound like you you have to cold call or door knock etc.


I got a degree and don't see why i need to do these things.


Which company is the best for someone with my education thats looking for a M-F 9-5 where I can just chill in my offfice and just deal with walk ins wanting to invest their money?

You may want to apply at Beecher, Tool & Dye.

If you are in fact serious, and not a troll, I would agree that this is not the career path for you. I had a great deal of interest in this field, and 7+ years sales experience, BBA... let me tell you as someone starting out in the industry, it's tough out there. If you don't have SUBSTANTIAL savings or SUBSTANTIAL experience that is relavent to the industry(ie. Sales/business owner), I would reccomend you look for another career path. Without a willingness to bust your butt, and determination to succeed, THIS IS NOT THE BUSINESS FOR YOU! However; if you still feel this is the route you want to take, do substantial research and interview with as many firms as possible. Make sure you are making an educated decision when accepting an offer (if made) and READ AND COPY and hiring paperwork prior to signing.
Hope this helps give you some guidence.

The original poster is a troll and is baiting everyone for responses.

 
He has to be.  No one is that dumb.  Or at least I hope not.

you must be a troll if you asked a question like that on this site. But if you are serious than, and I am trying to be funny, you will not last longer than 1 month. You will work 12 hard hours a day especially if you are right out of school. Take it from me i graduated in December and have only been selling for a couple of months. Best of luck to you but this career will probably not work for you

Ron Paul is a bastard.

Honestly, go to TD Ameritrade. There you can just call on clients and accept walk-in's or the Mutual Fund Store, if you have those in your area. I am not sure but I think Charles Schwab may be the same way. Everywhere else you will need experience. Otherwise, you could work as an advisor at a Bank and try to convince Granny Smith to do something different with her CD when one of the tellers says she should speak to you.

What about Wachovia Securites?

Even though they are my biggest competition, I actually don't know there story. Do they pay a salary the first couple of years?

 
I think it might be hard to get on there without any experience. Not sure though.
