    The investment firm that bought us earlier this year has basically let go about 25% of our staff, but offered opportunities to work with them for the rest of us still here. In the name of self-preservation, I applied, and lo and behold got the job. So now instead of helping bastards with their computers, I now will assist them with mergers and acquisitons as an investment research associate, which is a another term for stock broker monkey. :o If any of youse want to buy or sell, give me a ring. Peace.

    None. I have to take the Series 3 test, which they pay for. Even if I fail, I can retake it again...but it's not a difficult thing to pass they claim.

    Well, we get paid whenever clients acquire or merge, so the hours will vary. I could make a whole paycheck off of one dude if I play the cards right.

    Hmmm. Well, how do you feel about it, Terry? It does sound like it will offer a lot of opportunities, if you are interested in the field. :huh: Good luck with it.

    wow you really lucked out. The I.T. field is ***** in the U.S. nowadays since everything is being outsourced. The business field, however, is booming. There will always be many opportunities in the business field. Congrats Terry.
