I just want to say hi to all the moderators and frequent posters on this forum. I'm usually not a big poster, but I hope in my ambition I can frequent here and get much needed advice on bettering my career. A little about me: I was in the Marine Corps for the last 5 years and didnt get the opportunity to do much college, but I dont consider it to be a weakness. I am a very hard and responsible worker, and just moved to NYC to pursue my dreams of success. I just turned 23 and have a job as a health insurance salesperson at Atlantis Health Plan. I hope that through this portal I can find my way into securities. About Atlantis, I dont see too much about it except good training/experience. I am hoping I could rise quickly and move on quickly. The most important thing I am hoping to pick up on while Im on my own, is networking. Networking is huge in this town, and I see we can all be beneficial to one another is some form. I work hard, and after I've paid my dues I will play hard. As the time goes, I am confident that one day I will be here helping someone else in my place to find his/her way.
Use your GI bill to get a bachelor's degree if you want to get into securities.
