CLEVELAND — We are helping you rebound from the coronavirus pandemic. Maybe you lost your job, or the global health crisis made you realize it's time for something different.

News 5 is profiling companies that are hiring right now. That includes a company in Ohio City that hasn't slowed down during the pandemic.

"Someone who really wants to take a comprehensive look at their retirement, their college funding, risk mitigation and they want that put together in a package in a concise way, typically would come to someone like us," said Dan Brennan, with Skylight Financial Group

Skylight Financial provides financial planning services to individuals and businesses across Ohio and is looking to grow its team of financial planners.

"There's not a lot of other places you can go if you want to be in this industry and you want to be trained and supported and financially assisted when you begin your career," said Brennan.

The financial planners are independent contractors, and it's that independence Brennan says is so attractive to a lot of people. Especially, working moms. Brennan says they've received a lot of interest since the pandemic hit from that demographic.

"A good candidate is somebody who thinks entrepreneurial," he said. "Thinks like a businessperson that wants to grow their own business. If they don't have experience, are coachable so they can be helped in growing their business, but really we're looking for self-motivated and self-initiated individuals."

He says they offer benefits, and income is determined on your own activity and success. "However, generally in your first two or three years you should be looking in that $55,000 to $70,000 range, and we have people here who are well into seven figures," said Brennan.
