Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) March 22, 2007
Tax season is here and demand is high for financial analysts and personal finance advisors. However, January through April is not the only boom time for financial planning consultants, according to a feature on LocalEdu.com, an online resource that provides location-specific school information (http://www.localedu.com). LocalEdu.com's feature article highlights a Bureau of Labor Statistics projection that employment of financial analysts and personal financial advisors is predicted to increase "faster than average" for all occupations at a rate of between 18 to 26 percent through 2014.
LocalEdu.com features program listings for finance degrees and other business administration fields, along with an array of features on careers, education and other opportunities. LocalEdu.com's business education feature article "It Pays to Earn Your BBA in Finance in Charlotte," spotlights just one of LocalEdu.com's business finance programs in the context of the bright long-term forecast for financial planning consultants nationwide
The article explains: "With baby boomers entering retirement, people living longer and the market becoming increasingly globalized, these financial experts will be in great demand--especially in Charlotte, where many of the companies handling these concerns are based. Median annual earnings for financial analysts in 2004 were a healthy $61,910, and for personal financial advisors they were $62,700."
The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors recommends that comprehensive financial advisors have not only a college degree, but also pursue advanced education in financial planning topics such as investments, taxes, insurance or estate planning.
