I recently interviewed for a Financial Analyst position where I did very well. After meeting with a bunch of people, I began to realize the position would have mundane financial reporting, but began to perk up the more the higher ups talked about some of their goals for automation, which I have a ton of experience doing. They loved it and are nearing an offer stage. In order to lure me away from a competitor, they have now actually changed the job duties to match my talents for automating processes first and doing reporting second. If they show this much interest, is it reasonable to think they may come in higher than where my recruiter submitted me? I'm truly excited, but I am also not afraid to negotiate my salary, knowing they really want my unique skills that will serve them well. I would love some feedback from hiring managers, HR personnel, or people that have been in a similar situation. I really appreciate it! :)
I recently took a position with an insurance company as a Financial Analyst. It doesn't seem to be the same structure as in a banking firm. As a Financial Analyst, I report to an Accounting Manager, and he in turn reports to the Controller. As opposed to a banking firm, where I could go from Financial Analyst I to Financial Analyst II and beyond, it seems like the room for growth as a Financial Analyst in the insurance industry is a bit stifled. Are there other positions where people in Finance go into at insurance companies? I'm just trying to wrap my mind around what my future might look like. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Especially from those that work in insurance and related fields! :)
I am thinking about going into the statistical side of finance. I am not sure if I want to pursue actuary positions or possibly portfolio manager positions. I have a degree in economics and I find the accounting-intensive position to not be very challenging. It's nothing like the 4 semesters of calculus or 3 semesters of grad level stats courses I had to take to get my degree. Am I pigeonholing myself by working in insurance? Being that we follow SAP as opposed to solely GAAP, I'm beginning to wonder if that predisposes one to the insurance industry.

My boyfriend just got a job offer from Fifth Third Bank to be an Assistant Branch Manager. However, his credit is pretty bad. He can't even get an apartment. So, my question is, will they withdraw the offer after they check his credit. Or have they already done so prior to making the offer? Just don't want to get my hopes up for a better job for him and he won't even be able to take it.

I went for the interview and after a few days, I wrote to them to follow up and was told - "we have decided not to take things further with you for this position". Then I went to take a look at their website and noted this - the same position (same job description) but title different - OFFICE MANAGER/PR MARKETING MANAGER
What can I do/write to make them reconsider me for this job?
Their expansion plans fit in very well for me. The manager said that later I could move in HR/PR/Acounts etc. I told him that I had an interest in recruitment but the only area that I could not do was PR. However, I clarified what type of PR work (no need to speak to Media) was required, I told him that it would be no problem.
Age group that I would be working with - younger than me. I said no problem.
What to do? I really interested in working for them and growing with this company. Any suggestions? Can I ask him to re-consider? What should I write?
Thanks for your suggestion Alex Smith. Actually, I haven't done alot of the things mentioned in the job description but I emphasized that I good in admin and support roles.

A large city government was putting on a number of seminars for managers of various departments throughout the city. At one of these sessions the topic discussed was motivation—how to motivate public servants to do a good job. The plight of a police captain became the central focus of the discussion:
I’ve got a real problem with my officers. They come on the force as young, inexperienced rookies, and we send them out on the street, either in cars or on a beat. They seem to like the contact they have with the public, the action involved in crime prevention, and the apprehension of criminals. They also like helping people out at fires, accidents, and other emergencies.
The problem occurs when they get back to the station. They hate to do the paperwork, and because they dislike it, the job is frequently put off or done inadequately. This lack of attention hurts us later on when we get to court. We need clear, factual reports. They must be highly detailed and unambiguous. As soon as one part of a report is shown to be inadequate or incorrect, the rest of the report is suspect. Poor reporting probably causes us to lose more cases than any other factor.
I just don’t know how to motivate them to do a better job. We’re in a budget crunch, and I have absolutely no financial rewards at my disposal. In fact, we’ll probably have to lay some people off in the near future. It’s hard for me to make the job interesting and challenging because it isn’t-it’s boring, routine paperwork, and there isn’t much you can do about it.
Finally, I can’t say to them that their promotions will hinge on the excellence of their paperwork. First at all, they know it’s not true. If their performance is adequate, most are more likely to get promoted just by staying on the force a certain number of years than for some specific outstanding act. Second, they were trained to do the job they do out in the streets, not to fill out forms. All through their careers the arrests and interventions are what get noticed.
Some people have suggested a number of things, like using conviction records as a performance criterion. However, we know that’s not fair—too many other things are involved. Bad paperwork increases the chance that you lose in court, but good paperwork doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll win. We tried setting up the team competitions based on the excellence of the reports, but the officers caught on to that pretty quickly. No one was getting any type of reward for winning the competition, and they figured why should they bust a gut when there was on payoff.
I just don’t know what to do.
I am Japanese. Although I can't speak and write English so much, I am writing this question because I want to hear the real voice of you.
In Japan, military sexual slaveries a very historical,deep, and seriouos problem. Korea, China, and other countries insist that military sexual slavery were there in the pacific war, and these countries ask Japan to apologize. However, some Japanese say and believe that "there were not military sexual slavery", those women choosed there job by themselves. So, Japan doesn't need to apologize.
There are so many information. I don't know what is the truth, although I think Japan has not apologized about the pacific war to Korea, China, and other countries enough yet.
Would you please give me your opinion as a third party?
I am sorry for my poor English. I just want to hear your opinion about military sexual slavely in Japan as a third party.
Thank you very much.
