FPA Houston 2nd Annual Career Day

Mark your calendars! The Financial Planning Association of Houston invites you to join them for the 2nd Annual Career Day on Thursday, January 11, 2018. If you are interested in hiring interns or full-time candidates, this is the event for you!

What is Career Day?

Career Day is a full day of networking and interviews.  Our mission is to help candidates get employment opportunities to further their career goals and, at the same time, help employers find their next Star to add value to their firm.  There is no better opportunity for you to get significant face time with numerous prospective employers/employees, network with the FPA Houston chapter members, and further the profession’s brightest minds.  There are many chances throughout the day for networking and ad hoc interviews.

Participating firms and candidates are subject to change. 


NO CONTACT BEFORE INTERVIEWS: If a participating firm contacts interviewees prior to Career Day, they will automatically forfeit their interviewing times for the entire day. Likewise, if an interviewing candidate contacts an interviewing firm prior to Career Day, that interviewee will forfeit all of their scheduled interviews and no refunds will be issued.
