What begins with formal training and mentoring may quickly evolve to job shadowing, cross-department learning and leadership opportunities. Across divisions, departments and roles. Tapping into your creativity. And helping you discover how you can contribute at the highest level, grow as a leader and build the career of your dreams.
Our formal training programs are tailored to your individual needs – and we encourage and support your professional development throughout your career. Based on your interests and development needs, you can complete training to boost your understanding of our products, improve your management skills – or increase your capabilities in a number of areas. Your training may include the opportunity to learn more about another area of the firm by shadowing a colleague. Formal training continues long after the class is over through on-the-job application, stretch assignments, coaching and feedback and performance support.
We offer all home-office associates formal mentoring opportunities through our Inclusion Mentoring Program. Mentoring is two-way development. For mentees, this is an opportunity to learn from someone with experience – whose experiences are different from your own. Mentors are able to develop – and even deepen – their understanding of a particular topic while coaching their mentees. For both, it’s an invaluable opportunity to see things from someone else’s point of view – and grow in their own development.
Professional development isn’t limited to the training we offer at Edward Jones. Many roles require or encourage seeking professional licenses or designations to further expertise (e.g., Series 7, CFA, etc.). We also offer tuition reimbursement to those working toward an undergraduate or graduate degree.
