Personal Finance Careers

Personal finance deals with the financial decisions of individuals or families. If you’re interested in a career in personal finance, there are many paths you can take depending on your interests.

If you’d like to help others personally with their finances, you could become an accountant, financial advisor, or financial planner. These careers involve a bachelor’s degree and additional study along with certification.

You can also work with a company that creates personal finance products–that is, products that help people manage their money, from everyday budgets to investments. You can work in product design and development, financial support, marketing, or sales. You’ll need a bachelor’s degree for just about all of these positions and an interest in the company’s mission.
