Jobs

With hundreds of human beings around the world losing their jobs every month; if not more.......

What kind of "Occupation/Job/Title" do you think is the most important,
if not one of the most important to have during this crisis?


Like for instance.....

Would you say that Social Workers,
are a "need" nowadays.....because of the amount of homeless
humans, evicted from their homes, or the amount of humans
who need their special services?

Speaking of "services".....
Do you think the porn industry,
is a vital part of our economy, and that porn stars
are needed at this point of time, to lift people "spirits" up?

How about Auditors/Accountants?
Do you think they have a HUGE task at hand,
trying to fix up the f**k ups of those people who currently
manage and work at the Big Corporate Banks?


What say you?

And do you know of anyone who has lost their job,
and how it affected them and everyone around them?


Something to think about....
While humans around us, struggle to survive and make ends meet.


Rockn.

Don't believe everything you hear, it's not just the banks fault here. It all starts with the Clinton administration and his desire to provide affordable housing to the less fortunate. When Freddie Mac and Fannie May told him he was crazy, he told them to pipe it and do what needed to be done.
So here comes the banks, being told they have to give loans almost 100% of the time even if the person(s) don't have a checking account. With the rise in home buying/building, the banks saw the opportunity to capitalize on the money so they "dove" into the subprime mortgage business looking to make a very quick buck. That's when the bubble finally bursts. This leaving the banks will all the bad loans (that the government knew about, but turned their heads to).
So to answer your question, no job is safe. This recession is hitting everyone. And it's not fixing itself anytime soon. And yes I work for a bank that was just bought out. And it's great waking up every morning wondering if your going to get "that call". Just count your blessings if you have a job!

Great point there.....

And your assessment on the matter is spot on,
coming from a "banker"...........it's good you ain't an IRS agent....

And yes, the mortgage fallout, is the one that started it all......
with the credit that those banks just give around, without accountability,
like party favors in a kids birthday party.....

The worst; February; is behind us.......so it should get better regarding job opportunities in the near future.........but always have a backup plan.


BTW, do you really need to be a "CPA" nowadays, to have an excellent position in a big time bank?

Well let me back track a bit. I shouldn't have stated no job is safe right now. The only concrete job I see not losing positions is the military (ha ha), silly I know but it's a guaranteed occupation. As far as your questions about CPA's in banks, that's a tough one. At this time, the banking industry is getting hit the hardest...yes, harder than the automobile industry.

I'm seeing co-workers with MBA's, CPA's, CFP's, etc getting the boot. It's just an ugly time for all. For those of you up coming college graduates, don't fret, in time this will blow over and we can put this behind us. Here's hoping people learn to live within their means and stop living the upper class life when they have a combined income of a middle class life. Another words, just because the jaguar is sexy looking, you can't afford it. Get the Honda instead.
