Currently, I'm a federal employee (GS) and a Navy reservist. I am considering a career change as a financial planner. I am enrolled in the College for Financial Planning, and I am scheduled to complete my CFP education by November. My initial plan was to take the exam in March 2020, but I haven't decided whether that's what I want to do. I'd like to learn more about the financial planning career field before committing to the exam.
