“Many employers hesitate to hire millennials. Candidly, there are some nuances that will need to be addressed but can be corrected through proper training. Millennials, though, bring a fresh perspective and aren’t afraid to make suggestions for improvement. They are quick learners and can easily pick up a new task and work through challenges. Students from this program come prepared with a basic knowledge of all areas of financial planning. As an example, they know what an RMD is and how to calculate it; they even know that there are special rules for inherited RMD’s. They quickly pick up on and are able to navigate financial planning software and general office programs, which is a tremendous help with back office support.” -Christina Michalczak, CFP, QPFC, Owner & Financial Planner, Waterford Advisors
