Watch out for fees! Most are still pretty high because of old school active investing, but that is changing. Read up on what Warren Buffet suggests for funds (Vanguard). And then look into the e-trades of the world for the lowest fees. Stay away from Morgan Stanley, Wells Fargo Advisors, etc. Then don't touch it. Just add 10+% of each paycheck. You'll thank me in 10 years.

FYI financial advice should be customized to you based on your personal goals, best to go to fiduciary to discuss specific investment plan.

10k to invest, no debt, 2 years out of undergrad, no children/spouse.

There are significant financial benefits to home ownership if you're planning on being in the same location for a bit: building equity, mortgage interest deduction, property tax deduction.
