The growing economic power of women, and what it means for you
It’s a fact: Women prefer to get their financial advice from other women. In fact, 70% of women seeking advisors say they would prefer to work with a woman.1 Recent scientific evidence reveals that men and women process information in different ways, with women leaning more towards the intuitive and social cognition.2 Whether it’s brain chemistry, or a feeling that women can empathize with each other, the net effect is the same. This is your chance to connect with people whose lives you can truly improve.
Why does the financial services industry need more female financial representatives?
As women gain more control over the investment landscape, they will also seek out professional financial advice so that they can protect assets and create new ones. Women tend to put more emphasis on empathy and education, and the majority of women prefer to ask questions and receive input from a female advisor. That’s where you come in. We invite you to consider a fulfilling career with Guardian.
Want better work/life integration? Consider a career in sales.
Women are proud of their corporate achievements, but they’re also looking for something more – a satisfying lifestyle that can include a family. For example: closing a deal in the morning so you can show up at your son’s school that afternoon as a “secret reader” at one of his first grade storytimes. Sound like a great day?
