Every financial advisor job I look at requires experience what do I do?

I went to college to become a financial adviser in financing/accounting but, every job opening I look at online says you must have experience like 3-4 years sometimes 5-10 but, how am I suppose to earn experience in the job field if there is no job that I can find that accepts someone without experience? Should I tell them ill work for less money until I get more experience? Will they hire me that way? Thanks. You wouldn't hire someone who hasn't had any experience? Just cause I don't have experience doesn't mean i wouldn't be good at managing your money I mean after all that is what i went to college for so i'm sure i would know how to manage it.

Just like any industry, it pays to be specialized in a couple of things compared to having general knowledge of a lot of things. I found that getting my designation really helped me in terms of being... More
