LPL Launches Career Match Service

LPL Financial Services has launched LPL Career Match, a new online service to help its representatives find qualified candidates to join their branches.

The service enables LPL representatives to post jobs for 12 months at a time on, a Web site that receives more than 750,000 visits a year. Potential reps visiting the site can then search by location for careers with existing LPL offices and apply online.

LPL‚s branch development department pre-screens potential applicants for product mix and business type, runs regulatory and credit checks, and provides LPL representatives with a list of pre-qualified candidates to interview.

Once they‚ve posted a job, LPL representatives can either check back to monitor the activity on their ad electronically or simply wait for Branch Development to supply them with their list of pre-screened, qualified applicants.

LPL Financial Services, headquartered in Boston and San Diego, provides services and support to more than 4,600 investment professionals in 2,200 branch offices in the United States. For more information about
