I have a business degree, but have never worked in the financial sector. Rather, I've worked on an NGO research program and done a stint developing industry reports for a business publication.
I applied for an Associate-level opening in equities marketing research at a top-tier bank that surprisingly did not require a financial background. It was quite a vague description requiring strong writing skills, a background in research and ability to communicate with clients and industry experts. Weeks have passed and I've suddenly been called in for an interview on Monday, the person said they need someone to start as soon as July 1.
I googled the interviewer's name and he seems to turn up as a contact for a series of conferences and emerging markets research developed by this bank. Can anyone shed some light on this position? Does it offer growth prospects (or is it maybe a conference-planner role)? Would it be worth it, just to get the bank on my resume? Salary norms? Any tips?
I'm thinking about getting into wedding planning. I've read online degrees aren't necessary but I will need to get certified through someone. Are there any affordable, online wedding planner certification programs that won't require me to pay a bunch of money or spend years in school?
Yeah what the title says. I've searched for an answer everywhere but I couldn't find it, and I'm confused on what major you gotta study.
Thanks in advance!
I enjoy setting up fantasy football drafts and birthdays/get togethers for friends and families and everyone always has a great time when I put these together. Is there any jobs out there that would have similarities so I can get paid to set up events either minor or major for people to enjoy? Schooling never hurts, but is it mandatory to get a job in this field?
thank you for your clear cut answers guys
I am in admin work and have been for 13 years and I hate it! I have wanted a career change forever. At my prior job, I was on the event planning committee. I also loved organizing conventions for the marketing department. I think I would love doing this but I want to make sure before I pursue it that I can make good money at it. How do you get started?
I looked online am there are do many option for online schools but how can they all be true???
I also read another article saying in order to get certified you must have 2 years of experience with 4 planned weddings???
If anybody has taken a course for certification or knows any information on how to go forward please let me know!
Any event including wedding, party, conference, concert planners. What is it like to be an event planner? Do you enjoy it? Is it a good career to make money in? How did you get there?
I am currently a preschool teacher. I have a knack for planning events and have done so both professionally and in a volunteer capacity. I would like to do this full time. I would like suggestions on how to get into the industry and what education requirements I may need.
I really want to be a wedding planner when i grown up, so what would my major be in collage?
I have been searching for the "ideal/perfect" career for many years now, I find great difficulty in satisfying my need for an organized/structured career, yet something with creativity. I am a gemini and feel like I'm trying to satisfy two different aspects of my personality. A few years ago I went to a career counselor and was given a personality type assessment. I am an ESFJ. So, I am really trying to find something that suits me.
ESFJ- Extroverted, Sensing, Feeling and Judging.
Obama is talking about all the new jobs that are going to be created in the near future such as solar jobs rebuilding highways etc.I would like to find out what jobs specifically will likely come to the Cali area and how do i get trained for them.seeking employment
What is the role of an Urban Developer? I want to know because I'm considering studying to be an urban developer? Who do urban developers work for? major companies? clients? self employment?
Please, any urban developers out there? *esp explain if self employment is possible- because I think once I'm a qualified urban developer I will be able to buy land and build houses on them then sell them, am I right?
In three months, I will be graduating with a bachelors degree in psychology. For the first two years of school, I was convinced I wanted to become either a research/experimental psychologists or a counseling psychologist. But about a year and a half ago I realized that is not at all what I want to do, but it was too late to switch my major, as I had already had a significant amount of psychology credits completed.
My real passions lie in writing, reading, planning, and organizing. My dream careers are: technical writer, editor, event coordinator, or wedding planner. The only related things I have on my resume are a few publications in my university's journal of literature and art, and a semester of working with the university's newspaper. I've also done some volunteering where I helped organize an event but that's the extent of it.
I can't go back in time and change my degree. Also graduate school is not an option at this point, as I am financially independent of my parents and can certainly not afford it, nor do I even want to continue my education at this point. So can anyone help? Thanks
RoaringMice, thank you so much for your answer. Very informative and helpful, I greatly appreciate it.
What can somone really do with a degree in a forign language? That is other than teaching or translating?
How can I do a Home Care Caregiver?, would it be bad job for a foreing?, how much can i charge per hour?, do i need any kind of collage degree?
I just joined "Second Life" this week and I find that you need money to really do anything there (just like real life). What is the best and easiest way to make some quick start-up cash? Thanks
I'm currently in grade 12, 17 years old. I need to go back for one semester(4 classes) then i'm done high school. Im planning to take travel and tourism. Is there else you recommend I can take?
I love traveling, what kind of jobs can I get with travel? Like what about travel planner, or plane assistant..whatever they are called. How hard are thoses? Do you have to go to college?
any info would be great!!
I'm really interested in this one thing, and I think there might be a career somewhere for it. I like to plan and coordinate events. Kind of like a wedding planner: plan and schedule different events and activities, but as a full time job. Does anyone know any kind of career like this (the title, please; and NOT a wedding planner) and maybe where you could be hired doing it? Thanks!
