Hi Y'all!!



Can u please explain which is more useful...Series 66/7 versus Canadian Security Courses (CSC).



Can u use the CSC in the States or the Series 66/7 in Canada.



Which one would u take & why? I'm currently studying for my series 63 will do 65 later. Combine them & get 66 then later the 7.



I chose this option because this was cheaper than the CSC & I think easier as I do 3 diff. exams but I'm wondering if I should have chosen the CSC as I will work in Canada?



Thanks in advance

Icecold..i have a college degree in a business related field. So I might not be the smartest chick in the block but I can learn.



I know that I need the 7 before 66 but I havent been able to get a sponsor so I thought I'd get the 63 then the 65 by myself (those are equivalent to 66). Once I show that I'm serious & dedicated enough to go with the 63 & 65 all by myself I'm sure I'll be taken more seriously by employers.

I cant edit...anywhere's given my unique situation looks like I need the 66 (63+65) just to prove myself before I can get a sponsor for the 7.

Before you do another thing you need to find out why no one will sponsor you and address that (those?) issue(s).

I think the fact that the boyfriend says smile but don't talk, goes a long way to explaining this troll's problems with getting sponsorship.  Unfortunately, you can't just sit there and smile during an interview.

Hey man clear out your inbox will you??

Let's see - if I want to work in Canada should I obtain the licenses required to do so or should I obtain the licenses for the US?

Hmmmmm.  That's a tough dilemma for sure, BJQ/mrsobama/thatgirl.  So confusing.

Ah heck, why not just go ahead and get SOMETHING now and find out later if it serves any useful purpose?!  Yeah - THAT'S the ticket!

Get married to your plastic surgeon, sign a prenup, and then smile and don't talk until you can't handle that anymore then divorce him.  Then look for a good adviser.

Phil...they wont sponsor because I have never had a regular job before. So its impossible to write a resume as I have too many gaps from the time I graduated till now.
 
Any suggestions?

Reason why I asked is because I thought it might be more like a CMA etc. I know that a Canadian trained CMA etc althoughtrained to specialise in Canada can still work in the States so can an MBA so I was wondering if the securities courses are the same. Same goes for doctors etc.

Give up.  Really.  Better to swallow your, um, pride now and pursue something you have a chance at than wasting any more time and energy at this, and STILL not get anywhere.

If you had half a clue you would realize the difference between a designation (like CMA or certified whatever), a degree (like an MBA) and a license (like series 7).  The first two might be nice to have, but a license is REQUIRED.  And the licensing in one country does not apply in another. 

So someone with a CMA can only work in the States if they hold one of the relevant US licenses, such a Series 7, and having a CMA or not will have ZERO influence on being licensed.  Similarly, holding a Series 7 does NOT license you to work in Canada, or Holland, or anywhere outside the US.

I repeat: do yourself a favor and give up now.

First of all, it's Philo...not Phil.



As to your other question, why would ANY prospective employer in the brokerage industry want to give you the right time of day? What could he/she possibly have to gain by spending the many thousands of dollars necessary to put a broker in business? As I said before, until you know that, you've got nothing to offer.



And by the way..."I'll work REALLY hard" is bullsh1t.

Thanks for the explanation. And NO i'll not give up...I've come a long way to do that. I'll get my series 63, 65 & take it from there.

Why did the admin ban thatgirl when she was actually interested in this career field based on her questions albeit she made a really really bad 1st impression!

Your 2nd & 3rd impressions aren't much better.

Wow, that was a great way to announce your come back.. Thanks for the heads up.. ha ha ha.. Ever get that interview with Jones? Did you give up and decided you should get a real job first?
 
On a serious note.. If you want to work at Jones or any other firm for that matter.. Get a job hold it down for 5 years make some serious sales and then come back.. They will hire you.. Stripper or not.. if you can show them you are able to hold down a SERIOUS job and make money doing it.
