    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...

    Has anyone worked in a call centre before?

    Sounds like my Master's. One of the reasons I'm leaning on it is because you work weekends every now and then. This gives me the chance to do interviews on the weekdays that I will have off. Just the market is really bad now and can't afford to stay unemployed for months.

    Has anyone worked in a call centre before?

    Is it bad? That places I'm considering is for big bank call centres. Working at these would allow me to get an insurance and mutual funds selling licence which can lead to possibly better jobs when the market gets better. I need a job soon that isn't retail. If I go into retail, I'll be...

    Why do some of you use make-a-layman-scratch-head kinda words?

    OP, you talk down to people on purpose? I have a friend who failed out of university but I wouldn't be surprised if he can destroy any of us with words. He's hardcore into philosophy and I haven't got a clue what he's saying sometimes. I just ask him to explain and tell him the words I don't...

    Finally! I'm done!

    I presented my M.Sc. project today. Finally! I decided not to do a Ph.D. as I found Acadamia really interfered with my pursuit of learning anything. Anyways, I had ideas of other research I can do and I bumped into an M.Sc. student from Computer Science that is working on exactly that. Which...

    Buying car on credit, is this a sound decision?

    This is you. Fact: Most people live in urban areas. I even moved to get closer to public transportation. Now I can go out by walking. Enjoy public transporation. Have a place in a prime location. I still save money! If I move to Vancouver, I would live downtown. You save being close to...

    Attitude about working in teens. Common or not?

    I agree that he's just lazy. My guess is that he's on Facebook or some other type of entertainment. People are living passive lifestyles nowadays. Everything must be passive from entertainment, learning, work and more.

    Buying car on credit, is this a sound decision?

    You don't even need a car! Why is everyone in North America (excluding Vancouver) neglect to take public transportation!? It's so cheap! Only $80 a month here. I can read a book while going to work. Buses come every 5-10 minutes so I'm hardly waiting. Subways are every 2-4 minutes. You get...

    Buying car on credit, is this a sound decision?

    Well I don't even drive. I'm 26 years old and also live on my own. I own a 1996 Dodge Neon but it's not rusted up like yours. I keep it at my mother's house. I never ever drive it. Been over a year now. I drive a little scooter around during the summer and ride my bike during winter to get to...

    Just a rant I guess.Tonight my friends wanted to show me this

    How old are you? If this is Canada, they will let you off so don't worry. Note: Yes, I love Canada for that reason. I don't mind letting go of a few bad apples to save the good ones. Yes it's a risk I'm willing to take.

    Looking for jobs. Should I tell them I have a Master's?

    Hi everyeone, I'm applying to entry-level jobs in banking or just about anything. I have a M.Sc. in Math. I'm not getting any calls whatsoever for any kind of job (well not literally). Even if I'm qualified, I don't get a call. My cover and resume are very nice. I have community volunteer...

    Flirting allowed?

    No offense but I sense a lot of judgements here are made through personal insecurities which is no better than the flirtie. I'm friendly with both sexes. I smile, I touch them, and so on. If someone can't handle that, clearly I can't handle them and I cut the rope. I can not tolerate...
