Student Spotlight: Blake Wilson, Edward Jones

Eller PDC Student Stories

Blake is working this summer at Edward Jones as a financial advisor in San Diego, CA.

Tell us a little bit about how you landed the internship:

At Eller Career Immersion Day I made a connection with the Edward Jones recruiter, applied for the position, and continued to follow-up and network with the recruiter.

What do you like about your internship so far?

I like how in this industry you get the opportunity to work for a big company that provides you with support and helps you along the way. However, you also get the autonomy of managing your own clients. You are treated as if you are running your own business. Your salary is purely commission based and you get to make your own hours. Best of all, you get to help people make smart decisions with their money.
