Jobs & Professional Residencies

We are pleased to offer this opportunity for students and employers to connect. The School of Financial Planning at Texas Tech offers a bachelor's in PFP, an accelerated bachelor's to master's in PFP, a traditional master's in PFP, and joint graduate degrees coupled with concentrations in Business, Accounting, and Law. This gives our students great depth and diversity and makes the Personal Financial Planning program at Texas Tech a great place for students to get an education and for employers to find highly qualified candidates for a wide range of career opportunities.

As part of their degree plan, students in the undergraduate program are required to complete a 300-hour paid Professional Residency. Their participation in the Professional Residency Program results in better preparedness for their future careers in the financial planning profession. This experience increases the value of our students' education by giving them an opportunity to further develop their technical skills while also establishing relationships with professional mentors in the financial planning community. Firms hosting Professional Residents get a chance to recruit some of the most talented financial planning students in the country and contribute to their education and the overall advancement of the financial planning profession. 

How to Hire Texas Tech PFP Students
