Im seeking to train in a small brokerage that will sponsor me for the series 7, train me, and pay for it. How do I approach this? Whats the best way? I live in Orlando, FL so I'm thinking google"brokerage/financial planner/financial advisor in Orlando Florida" and what ever pops on contact them in person, email, phone or all of the above. Does that sound logical?I have been contacted and interviewed by Waddell and Reed Advisors and it doent seem legit. I have to pay them to train, and pay for the series 7 to work for them on commission with no real training or lead help? huh? are all brokerages like that?With no experience in the b/d, fin. analyst field I dont expect to be sponsered by a large brokerage. My ideal senario would be to sponsered by a small firm, gain some experience with the firm and then move on to a more reputable brokerage and move up the corporate ladder.Please help!? My background is in economics. I have a BS and MA in economics (economic forecasting concentration), and worked as a data researcher/forecaster/analyst as an intern at a few places. I just finished grad school and I'm 29.Thanks in advice for any help you can provide!
