    News Recession Ended in June 2009

    I agree with russ waters is saying. There is a definition one must follow and to not confuse the terms. Saying the recession ended doesn't imply people will start getting jobs. Whether we are in recession or not has no relevance to me at the moment. The most relevant thing is jobs. Typically...

    Thinking of Becoming an Actuary, in last year of high school

    My friends works in Toronto and it's a tough business. And yes, you should study hard for the course for sure! I'm studying for something similar and that is the CFA Exam and I'm sure I'll fail in December. Having a weak background in finance and registering late. Most of my friends are...

    Thinking of Becoming an Actuary, in last year of high school

    My friend is in the industry and he said its tough if you plan to work specifically in the insurance industry. Personally, I think studying actuarial sciences would be dumb. Go into computer science and take statistics as a minor. Start your exams immediately after taking a probability course...

    To take off or not to take off

    I'm designing websites. Something I've learned on my free time. Whether I would have dropped out for one term to learn this, I doubt it.

    Best Grocery Items?

    Exactly. Best way to go. I can't stand frozen foods anymore. I remember I used to eat them but now I can't... not even a little bit.

    Best Grocery Items?

    Michelina's is gross. I rather punch myself in the throad than eat that. I used to just spend 3 hours on Sunday cooking every meal of the week. Pasta, Chili, Tacos, Potatoes, Chicken, and throw all the meals in the freezer. You can put 6-8 pieces of chicken and lots of potatoes in the over...

    Science or Finance?

    Hey! I'm coming from a similar path but I have a mathematics and accounting background (accounting I did years and years ago). I finished my M.Sc. in Number Theory (not finance related at all). I was going to take any job but decided to move back home and do more study. I want a finance...

    Has anyone worked in a call centre before?

    For sure. I just need to keep working hard. I will write the CFA (Financial Analyst) exams too. And probably apply for CGA (Accounting Designation in Canada). We will see. I hope I get it.

    Has anyone worked in a call centre before?

    Good way to put it. Pay the bills. Make a living. Then the economy will roll around and pick up. Employers will see I didn't sit around and do nothing!

    Has anyone worked in a call centre before?

    I have a background in Finance and Accouting, and I have an M.Sc. in Mathematics. My two preferred options is to get a real finance/accounting job or teach mathematics at the college level. Neither of which are available right now. This is the reality of a bad economy. Canada's economy is...

    Has anyone worked in a call centre before?

    Oh this is not something I want to do. I don't think anyone here understands. The reality is... you need to work. I can't get the jobs I want right now. Sure I would to sit around unemployed for a year like everyone is doing nowadays, but really I don't want to do that. I might as well...

    Has anyone worked in a call centre before?

    Most of my friends graduating from graduate school in science aren't getting jobs. When you need to make a living, you need to do it and it doesn't matter what you like or don't like. Yeah, I rather teach college. I rather work at a finance or accounting firm but I can't wait a year to land...
