" Since I was young, I had the explicit goal of pursuing a career in financial planning. However, having the idea and knowing how to bring it into reality is vastly different. That's where New Planner Recruiting and Caleb stepped in, bridging the gap between my dreams and their realization.

In reaching out to Caleb with an introductory email, I didn't just present my resume. Instead, I shared my passion for the financial field, highlighted my commitment to continuous learning, and conveyed my innate drive to serve others in the industry. Caleb and the New Planner Recruiting team saw these qualities in me and decided to provide an opportunity where others only saw inexperience.

What transpired next was nothing short of a dream coming true. With Caleb's guidance, I have been placed in a firm that I am proud to be a part of – a place filled with remarkable individuals dedicated to the same values I hold dear.

New Planner Recruiting is not just about securing jobs for candidates; it's about crafting careers and cultivating dreams. Its platform recognizes raw passion, fosters learning, and champions ambition. The path they carve out for aspirants like me is a testament to their unique and compassionate approach to recruiting.

My heartfelt thanks go to Caleb and the entire team at New Planner Recruiting. Your belief in me has propelled me into a fulfilling career and cemented a positive, life-long transformation. Indeed, you're not just shaping professional trajectories but cultivating futures."   Cesar Sandoval

What Type Of Candidate Are You?

Majority of FP career entrants
(average candidates)
Very limited supply, in high demand
(above-average candidates)
Extremely limited supply in very high demand
(top candidates)

Do you do what is required or do you go above and beyond what is expected? If you go above and beyond, how far above and beyond do you go? There is a clear difference between an average candidate, an above average candidate, and a top-tier candidate.

An average candidate does the minimum.

An above average candidate goes above and beyond the minimum requirements. They are curious and seek to increase their knowledge and learning through additional experiences.

But a top-tier candidate has a deep desire to succeed and looks for even more areas to increase their skills to put them on the right path to success. These candidates demonstrate they are on the opposite end of the spectrum.

At the end of the day, it’s all about a mindset. Which mindset do you have?
