SYCAMORE – Financial-services firm Edward Jones is looking to hire more financial advisers in the DeKalb/Sycamore area, and will host a career development seminar where potential entrepreneurs can learn more about the company.

According to a news release, the number of individual investors looking for help from financial advisers is growing, and Edward Jones is growing its network of local branch offices.

“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,” said Chad Walton.

The career development seminar 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.

The seminar will begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 19, at the Edward Jones office of Ryan Genz, 1170 DeKalb Ave., Suite 109 in Sycamore. For more information, call 630-232-2204 or visit www.careers.edwardjones.com.

Edward Jones financial advisers come from diverse backgrounds. Teachers, bankers and engineers all have joined the ranks, but have one thing in common: They are self-starters who enjoy working with and helping other people. Edward Jones stresses the importance of meeting face-to-face with clients and providing them with the attention and guidance that they need and deserve.

The firm offers an extensive training program for new financial advisers. The firm is consistently recognized for delivering industry-leading training. 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. The company was also named one of the best companies to work for by FORTUNE Magazine for the 14th time. The firm was ranked No. 8 on FORTUNE’s list; the 10th time it has made the top 10.

Edward Jones provides financial services for individual investors in the United States and, through its affiliate, in Canada. The firm’s 12,000-plus financial advisers work directly with nearly 7 million clients to understand their personal goals and create long-term investment solutions that emphasize a well-balanced portfolio and a buy-and-hold strategy.
