SHELTON CAPITAL MANAGEMENT LAUNCHES SHELTON ACADEMY
Offering Encouragement to Graduates Entering the Workforce by Reframing the Dreaded Entry-Level
Denver, June 15, 2022 – Shelton Capital Management (Shelton) today launched the Shelton Academy, a program for entry-level candidates that seeks to address the evolving demands of young professionals. The program is an 18-month, full-time, paid opportunity for recent graduates interested in starting their career in the financial services industry.
More than simply offering graduates a foot in the door, Shelton Academy provides a broad set of skills and hands-on experiences from fund administration and client service to sales & marketing. Shelton recognizes that for this new generation of employees, a competitive salary is no longer enough.
Many entering the workforce expect to find both personal purpose and growth opportunities in their careers. Changing expectations require that employers give entry-level employees the opportunity to engage with all sectors of the business in order to understand the company’s wider purpose and their own role within the company to remain competitive in the current job market.
“The dreaded entry-level job should be on its way to extinction,” said Steve Rogers, CEO of Shelton. “Shelton Academy is a fresh approach that can equip young professionals with a holistic understanding of business in a way they would never get through the traditional entry-level job.”
In addition to work experience in each segment of this business, the program also empowers its participants by investing in their education. Candidates accepted into Shelton Academy will receive resources and training to obtain the FINRA Series 7 and 63 licenses, education necessary for those intending to continue their career in financial services.
“Many recent graduates have not developed a meaningful grasp of their own professional strengths and weaknesses or even what role would best build upon their existing knowledge and skills because they do not have enough real-world work experience,” said Amy Grillot, Human Resources and Operations Manager at Shelton. “Therein lies the value of our program; each candidate will have the opportunity to build skills in different departments exposing which roles they excel in and may be interested in pursuing after the completion of the program.”
