JOSEPH GOETZ: I think it makes a lot of sense for students whoare drawn to majors like psychologyor social work or other traditional helping professionsto really consider financial planning. ERIN S.: It has the atmosphere of accounting. It still has the math behind it.
You can often determined that an oven bake or broil element t is burned out by simply checking to see if … It still has the service for peoplebut it’s more one-on-one, so it’smore of the service atmosphere. T. MONTANO: It’s like a combination of both aspects. You get to help people more on a one-one-one basis. You get to see what your work is actually doing. ERIN S.: Including investments and real estate. Everybody buys a home at some point.
And then everybody has a retirement plan in their life. I have this problem… that whenever I leave my house, an important package is delivered while I’m gone…. So it’s really cool to be able to learn that and show somebodyelse how that works. T. MONTANO: The professors build relationships with you. All my professors know my name. And they know every other student in my classroom.
ERIN S.: And they’re willing to helpyou find internships and find jobs because they havea very tight-knit community. JOSEPH GOETZ: You get to have lifelong relationshipswith clients. And there’s a huge amount of fulfillmentthat comes from that. So I really hope students who want to work with individualsand want to– it sounds cliche but want to help people–financial planning should definitelybe on their short list. Because you can have a powerful impact on improvingindividuals’ lives.
