Nicholas Billeci, who graduated in 2013 with Honors and a BA in Economics, is a financial consultant with Fidelity Investments in Walnut Creek, California.  He also earned a BS in Business Administration with an option in Finance at Chico State in 2013.  During his junior and senior years Nicholas worked as a tutor in the Economics Department and a research assistant at the Center for Economic Development.

After graduation he accepted a job as a financial advisor with Edward Jones Investments.  They invited Nick to participate in their Financial Advisor Career Development program, which is designed to prepare recent college graduates for careers as financial advisors.  After accepting this offer Nick studied for three months for the Series 7 and Series 66 exams and after completing these exams he moved to Arizona for seven months for the training program.  Upon completion, he assumed responsibility for his own branch of Edward Jones Investments located in San Ramon, California, where he worked until 2015 when he moved on to Fidelity Investments as an investment consultant.  In 2017 Fidelity promoted him to financial consultant.

"I was fortunate enough to be able to apply the skills I learned studying international markets, statistics, and economics while at CSU Chico to build my own business in the area I was born and raised in," Nick stated in a recent email.  (Last Updated 9/17/18)
