I did a bit of research and see that most companies hiring a financial adviser will want you to have a college degree with a focus on business, finance, statistics, economics or a related field.
Best of luck in your search and future.
Patrick recommends the following next steps:
Build a portfolio of great grades and constructive activities during your studies. Of course, take quantitative courses.
Before you complete your degree, determine where the companies that you'd want to work for are based (figure that out your freshman year and land pertinent internships thereafter, as feasible; don't ignore opportunities at boutique advisories). Consider companies such as Prudential as an initial training ground once you graduate; again, consider smaller firms if their leadership is made up of seasoned finance veterans.
