We are currently seeking ambitious, driven and competitive men and women transitioning out of the military to become fully-licensed Financial Advisors.
No financial background? No worries...
We realize most transitioning or retiring military service members do not have the licenses required to be a Financial Advisor. These licenses usually consist of a State Life & Health and a Series 6, 63 & 65 Securities License (or Series 7 & 66).
We have a proven training program and a 50-year history of equipping transitioning and retiring U. S. Military Service Members with the tools necessary to build a successful business as part of a local District.
Successful Financial Advisors have integrity, are coachable , competitive, ethical and have a natural market.
If these characteristics describe you and you have at least 6 years of honorable military service and a Bachelor’s Degree and would like more information about this opportunity, please click below to apply and someone from our recruiting department will contact you.

Becoming an advisor is like going into business for yourself, but without the capital investment required in starting a business.
Financial advising is about helping others – helping them to prepare for the risks we all face and being there when they need it most. In this career, you will literally change the course of people’s lives.
For more than 50 years, the people of First Command have been proud to serve those who serve — helping thousands of military professionals and their families plan for their financial futures. Our history begins in the late 1950s, when Air Force Lt. Col. Carroll Payne had worked closely with the families of several crew members killed in an aircraft accident. Saddened by the survivors’ financial difficulties and eager to help other military families effectively plan for their financial futures, Lt. Col. Payne founded the company which would grow to become First Command. Click here to learn more about who we are .
