I have an interview in a couple of weeks for a firm that specializes in training new financial advisors/planners, which would be a great opportunity. Part of the year-long residency would be getting my series 7 and 66 certifications, which I honestly know almost nothing about.
Has anyone on /biz/ taken these exams? Are they easy or hard? I've always done well on standardized tests. I had a 33 on my ACT and when I thought about grad school I was in the 90th percentile for my GRE score. How much effort should I put into preparing for these if I do get the position?
>>1031726 That's what I figured. I was just curious. I'm not looking to make a fortune, just live comfortably and help people with their finances. I'd be willing to bloodsuck from a few rich cows though if that's what it takes.
>>1031633 I would have take you seriously if you didn't have the stupid photo attached to your post! I started my business in 2013 and I'm making $10k / month working 2 hours / day. Next year I'll be at $20k
Well, that entirely depends on what your current situation is like. Whats your age, education, work experience, etc. like?
P&G definitely pays well as far as marketing and sales jobs go. Out of my undergrad I am making 60-something a year with a very good life balance. I definitely think my quality of life is better than my finance friends who went into banking etc.
P&G does not offer as much upward mobility as other CPG companies... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My mom is really pushing me to take up nursing in college because pretty much all of my family is a nurse. They all make good money, but it's not really the job I want to be. I'm more of the lawyer or the investment banker type, but it's highly unlikely due to my moms disapproval and I won't be attending a top 10 school.
Can I still live the life I want to live while being a Nurse?
>>1031597 If the reason you want to be an IB or a lawyer is because of the prestige/money associated with it, why not become a doctor?
If it's because you like the culture surrounding finance and law then you are only going to be satisfied doing that. Doctors/nurses (other than psychiatrists) make money from helping people, lawyers and bankers make so much more money by often exploiting other people.
Let's say I can telecommute and do not need to show up anywhere
Where should I live, tax wise?
All I really want is fast internet, least amount of interaction with dumb Americans, and a winter that's milder than Michigan. The rest of the world is shit compared to the US so I might as well stay here
>>1031440 >Does anyone here make a decent income off of drop shipping? How long did it take to get where you are at?
It's a margin business.
I used to sell a few things, but one I sold a lot of. I also can program and can sysadmin, but I was selling for a friend.
We sold one product which sold well. To dropship one cost $39.41 plus UPS shipping. To ship six to us was $36.01 each, and orders over $200 to our office from the supplier were free, so we got free shipping. I... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm young and single. I make roughly 48k-55k a year. Wtf do I do with all my extra money? My expense are around $1000 a month and I have around 2k extra every month. I have no clue on investing but id like to get into it . I'd also like to run a business one day but have no idea on how to go about learning the necessary skills to start one too. Any good books for noobs at investing / starting a business
>>1031413 Where do you live? My rent alone (in a tiny efficiency) is 2k/month. Making 100k but it doesn't feel like it when 75% of your money if gone after taxes, living expenses and retirement savings.
So /biz/ here's the situation. I have a small tile business. I know for a fact that the other tile business in town is KILLING it with google. They are bringing in like 2-3 job leads a week, I think from Google searches, and Google Ads.
I want to do exactly what they are doing. So do I just call Google Adwords line? Pay an SEO guy? What's the best way to do this shit?
/biz/ I am a humble young man man wanting to make smart investments for his future via stock market trading. how do I go about getting started? I've been gathering info on here and various other websites users post when replying to some specific post but it is really quite overwhelming for someone with 0 experience in this field.
So I'm here requesting that you give me a website, a book, a magazine, a blogger or whatever that will tell me all the basics, and from the basics on to the intricacies of the stock market trading world.
And my question to you... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Im working on my resume and im having a few issues. Mainly Its 3 pages long! I know that's too long. I would never read a full page when I was hiring. Here is the issue, i've trimmed, and trimmed, and trimmed... I really cant lose much more.
Another issue I have run across is a few people have told me I come off as arrogant and entitled after reading it. However if I take out the "favorite project" section, I feel it lacks soul or personality.
Id love to post it here but converting RTF to JPEG is only showing the first page. Any help on that?
>>1031320 They're not hiring you for your soul or your personality. They're hiring you to kiss their ass. If they even bother to do something stupid like ask for your bestest favoritest thing, you better put on a shit eating grin and make something up related to the job, because that's all they care about. Cut relevant work history last.
I went into cloud-based technology out of undergrad some time ago.
I did it because I figured when shit is bad, software automation makes a good replacement for human labor. When shit is good, we can amplify human effort with software automation.
IT investment generally holds strong during recession because companies need to maintain operational efficiency.
I have friends who went into pharmacy and electronic engineering and they're both kind of stagnant. I'm in the Denver area making $110k and interviewing for a job ~$130k tomorrow. Salaries keep going up.
I'm developing an app aimed at cashing in while the marvel and superhero phase is still going on. It ocurred to me way too late however, that all those characters are owned and copyrighted by massive corporations.
Can I weasel my way out of it if I just name batman batmon, and superman uberman? stuff like that? sort of how the chinese do it, lol ???
How would I go about advertising for a Japanese head baker who has trained and worked in Japan?
I am opening a Japanese style bakery in my hometown (property is cheap) but although I have baking experience, I really need a professional Japanese baker who ideally is looking for a greencard to the USA.
Japanese people don't emigrate as often because they already have a high standard of living, so I really can't count on finding anyone local. Are there sites or headhunters that can match a employer in one country with a professional employee from another?
>>1031233 Why do you need a Japanese person to do the baking? Why not get a job at a Japanese bakery while you are in Japan, then come back to the US and open your own Japanese bakery. In the US you don't even have to worry about racist Japanese fucks thinking less of your goods because you're a gaijin. Americans and Japanese-Americans will just be equally happy to buy Japanese-style baked goods.
