    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at LPL Financial (Bethlehem, PA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I emailed the owner of the LPL branch in Bethlehem and talked about my studies and simple background questions. He tried to make it seem like it was a sought after position and limited space was available. The owner worked out of his home and it had the feel of a home business. He talked mostly about prospecting and selling to clients.

    Negotiation

    not difficult. Any student with any business background could get into it. Students probably know more about finance than the owner
