Career Advice - What would be the most lucrative job for me?
I have a BA in Economics from WVU, an MS in Management Information Systems, and am about to graduate with an MBA. I have been a middle B student all the way through. I am currently the director of purchasing for a capital city (2yrs). I have experience with managing people, doing light financial analysis, and overseeing many types of projects on a million dollar scale. I want to be an Energy Analyst/Trader, but opennings are scarce. I need to find something that pays $70-80K and I cannot do a commission only job. What do you suggest??
