Currently, I'm undergoing the interview process with EDJ and will hopefully net an offer and be on the journey towards success. I found this forum to be very useful in choosing the firm that I would like to work for. So I have taken it upon myself to document my EDJ journey.A little bit about my background:Fresh UCLA grad with a BA in economics4 financial internships, some sales/customer service experienceI choose EDJ because it seems to have the most comprehensive sales training program out there. In addition, many of the wealth management teams at wirehouses focus soley on financial/customer service training but not on the core skills needed to build a book.8/20* Completed online application8/25* Completed first phone screen - went over educational and work history mostly Be sure to thoroughly read the financial advisor packet8/26* Phone interview Went over educational/work history briefly 4-5 organizational questions 1. Name a time when you failed and how you succeeded from that time? etc Answer any and all questions by: 1. Stating the situation 2. Stating the action you took 3. Stating the outcome8/31* Went in for a branch office visit. Everything went well. And HR says i'm moving forward as soon as my background check clears.9/02* Background check cleared Scheduling F2F interview and committing to 25 surveys9/09* F2F interview Went well, I could tell he was a big producer, 10 years in the business. Lots and lots of behavioral questions and about 10 questions on the surveys I snuck peek at his recommendation and it said, "Good Candidate" So I'm exceptionally excited His mentality was different than HR's STAR approach, he liked short concise 1 line answers. Luckily, I caught on, or I would have been roadkill. I guess its true with all finance professionals.9/11* Got the letter stating that I didn't get the position. What to do now...Wow, on 9/11....If anyone has any tips or suggestions on how I can smoothly make it through the interview process. Please post!
