OUR MILITARY EXPERIENCE
Are you a military professional? Make your second career as meaningful as your first one. Whether you are a pilot or airman in the Air Force, a soldier in the Army, a rifleman in the Marines, or defending our shores as a Coast Guard member or Navy sailor, we speak your language.
Are you a Guardsman or Reservist looking for a new career or second career? First Command is proud of our advisors and employees who serve our country. As a member of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), we are committed to supporting our Guardsmen and Reservists.
Are you a military spouse in search of a rewarding and portable career? Many of our Advisors and employees are military spouses. As a Financial Advisor, you can move your business with you and continue your career with First Command when you PCS with your active duty spouse. We have offices located worldwide, near every major military installation. No more job searches after every PCS!
We have seen time and time again how the skills acquired during military service and successful business leadership are the same skills needed to be successful as a First Command Advisor. These skills include mission-first focus, strategic thinking, discipline, follow-through and a commitment to serve others and make a difference.

We’re more focused on hiring leaders who understand and have a passion for serving the military community. Our training programs are designed to teach you everything you need to know. We hire leaders, and for those who answer the call, joining the First Command team can be the start of a very rewarding career.
