There is a significant gap between what the next generation of talent wants from their employers with respect to professional development opportunities and what’s actually available to them. Think back to when you were a senior in college and looking for your first job. What did you gravitate towards? If you were like me, you probably were looking at opportunities at larger, more-established firms that touted a merit-based performance philosophy and opportunities for growth. Today’s students and young professionals are no different. They want to understand where the opportunities are for them to grow at a firm and what resources/support the firm can provide to help prepare them for that next step. In short, they are looking for a career, not a job.
So, how can you, as the owner of an advisory business, compete with these larger, more- established firms? Start with just two steps.
