Edward Jones Hosting Recruiting Event Jan. 8
In an effort to serve the growing number of individual investors who are looking for someone to understand their needs and goals, the financial services firm Edward Jones is looking to hire more financial advisers in Moore County.
As the firm continues to expand its business and grow its network of branch offices in Moore County, Edward Jones is hosting a recruiting event at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 8, at the Edward Jones office in the Stein Mart shopping center on U.S. 15-501 in Southern Pines.
"As we expand, we're looking to hire local candidates who fit in with the Edward Jones entrepreneurial culture, one in which high achievers who have a desire to run a business with the support of a much larger organization can serve clients and the communities in which they live and work," local financial adviser Craig Stokes said.
Edward Jones provides financial services for individual investors in the United States and Canada. Every aspect of the firm's business, from the types of investment options offered to the location of branch offices, is designed to cater to individual investors in the communities in which they live and work, a news release said.
The firm's 12,000-plus financial advisers work directly with nearly 7 million clients to understand their personal goals - from college savings to retirement - and create long-term investment solutions that emphasize a well-balanced portfolio and a buy-and-hold strategy.
In January 2012, for the 13th year, Edward Jones was named one of the best companies to work for by Fortune magazine in its annual listing. The firm ranked No. 5 overall and No. 3 in large-size companies. These 13 Fortune rankings include top 10 finishes for nine years, consecutive No. 1 rankings in 2002 and 2003, and consecutive No. 2 rankings in 2009 and 2010.
Edward Jones is headquartered in St. Louis. The website is www.edwardjones. com, and its recruiting website is www.careers.edward jones.com.
Edward Jones financial advisers come from diverse backgrounds, including teachers, bankers and engineers. The firm offers an extensive training program for new financial advisers. The firm is consistently recognized for delivering industry-leading training, the news release said. Earlier this year, Edward Jones was ranked No. 15 on Training magazine's "2012 Training Top 125" list, its 12th consecutive year on the prestigious list.
As part of that training, Edward Jones financial advisers build their businesses by calling on people face-to-face in the communities where they have chosen to live.
The recruiting event is designed to attract job candidates interested in learning about the challenges and rewards of building a business as an Edward Jones financial adviser. Edward Jones financial advisers will be present to answer any questions.
