Career Resources

 

Please share our career resources with students.  We connect them to financial services employers who offer scholarships, internships, and great careers.  Scholarships are usually for reimbursement of certain college or exam preparation courses that prepare them for a first or better position in the financial services field.  Students may inquire about Wheatberri Scholarships at Contact Us.

A significant percentage of the current financial services workforce is expected to retire in the next few years and there is a shortage of applicants for the positions available. Industry sources say the most difficult positions to fill are: Actuarial, Analytics, Claims, Compliance, Executive, Product Management, Sales, Marketing, Technology and Underwriting.  We introduce your students to employers in the fields of investments, banking, insurance, financial advisory and supporting services.
