Edward’s Answer

I'd get a job at one of your local credit unions. There are thousands of them, and many are small enough that the experienced people should have time to train you without a lot of red tape and bureaucracy.

Edward recommends the following next steps:

online search for credit unions in your neighborhood
apply at a shortlist of CUs

Scott’s Answer

Many of the finance apps (like Stash, SoFi etc) give free training on how to buy and sell stocks. But please remember that day trading (ie buying and selling each day) is risky, the best strategy is to buy and hold the stock.

If you wanted to actually work in Finance, then see what jobs are available. They’re likely to be very competitive tho, but pay well. If you don’t have experience, maybe try starting at a bank as a bank teller, and then see what opportunities develop. As that can be a good way to get into investments.

Online marketing likely has more entry level positions. Try to learn about it online and then apply for entry level roles. Once you have more experience you can move up, or freelance.
