So many financial advisors companies trying to attract fresh grads to enter using their high pay as a selling point.
They make it sound like it’s so easy to earn 5 digits per month eg by selling 1 case per week. And they even say they have support and training courses.
I wonder what are the cons of a financial advisor job? They almost never say the cons
Here are some of the cons of this job:
- The con is that its a con
- It’s a ‘self-sustained business’ which requires lotsa inner faith
- Poor work-life balance
- You might lose all ur friends when they ask u to start touching ur warm contacts. You might nt do well as an advisor. You might not enjoy the job and there are pretty stiff penalties for dropping out
- The cons is you only succeed if you’re a chiobu
- You go be one then share with us your experience lah
What netizens think:
- It’s not an easy job. You got to be brave enough to face endless rejections (easier said than done), believe strongly enough in what you are doing, and let people know how sincere you are. I’ve been in this line for almost 2 years now, and I don’t sugarcoat because new recruits will find out eventually anyway. Success stories are great and motivating, but not everyone has it that smooth sailing. Nevertheless, I still enjoy what I’m doing and that’s why I’m still here. If anyone is really considering joining this industry, my advice is join a team that has similar beliefs as you.
- It’s a professional beggar job. U need to beg and convince ppl to invest and then, you can get your high commission.
- I advised you not to join. No free lunch in this world.
- You need to find a boss who knows how to generate COLD leads on demand. Not all that personal network, roadshow, canvassing. Those work yes but in today’s world what worked 50 years ago is not always the best now.
