Financial planning would be a wise path to consider according to a recent press release from the UWire College Press releases & wire services. It is a career that offers growth, opportunities, flexibility and a chance to give back to the community. If you are on a job hunt it should definitely be on your list.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there is an increase in demand for financial planners and the number is expected to grow four times faster than other professions. Financial planning does not only offer freedom but also the possibility of promotion.

Brittany Castro, a Los Angeles-based Center for Financial Planning (CFP) professional said there is so much transformation in one's life when finances are well organized or put together. She added that it gives her a great feeling to assist her clients to reaching their financial goals.

CFP Pros serve as active members of their community by helping to set a budget, planning for retirement and assisting with taxes and insurance coverage. They help other members of the community with their financials and enable them to plan for the future.

There are a lot of reasons to consider the financial planning field. One doesn't necessarily need to be a big math person in order to become a financial planner. The job is about more than just math, it is about solving problems, building relationships and communication with clients, which is how CFP Pros help people look at the big picture.

Financial planning allows flexibility and enables a good work-life balance. There are different ways to make a career out of it such as going out on your own or joining a small or larger firm. In a tough job market and with a projected increase in job growth for financial advisors, this career is a sure safe bet.

According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median pay for personal financial planners is about $89K. The job is all about helping others while helping your bank account too, ULoop reported.
