I have a finance guy who has never asked me to explain my situation, but every time he walks into my office, he asks me to explain what the problem was with my finances. He goes through every single piece of paper that I have written, and it would take me 15 minutes or more to explain what the problem was. I am a single mom with a young toddler, and he is a financial advisor.
This happens a lot, and I’m sure it’s because the majority of us finance people feel a lot of pressure to explain ourselves to our clients. When you think about what we do for a living, it just doesn’t make sense to be so open about our job. But that’s okay. We are allowed to be as honest as we want.
We are allowed to be as honest as we want. If you think about it, in finance we are all pretty open about our jobs in the sense that we are asked to write down financial reports and come up with a plan of action. But we are allowed to not talk about it. Which means that we are allowed to not make excuses for our clients. Which is why the majority of us don’t. We are allowed to focus on our clients, not our own.
I’ve been lucky in that I’ve never been asked about my job (even though I think my job is pretty awesome), but I know plenty of people who have been asked about theirs. And it’s not just in finance. I used to work with a guy who was asked about his job every day. It was pretty awesome. I don’t think he was able to find a way to hide it.
Ive never worked for a company where people were asked about their jobs in front of me. Ive worked at companies where the job descriptions on the wall were more than a bit vague. If you were in a job that required you to do something to you for a very long time, I think you might be able to keep a secret, and I definitely think that people who work in the finance industry are able to do this.
I think the question about being in finance is a bit hard to answer. I think it is because a lot of finance jobs are not glamorous, and being in finance is probably the hardest job to explain. I mean, there is a line that separates the finance industry from more traditional jobs like the law enforcement or military. To get into finance, you either have to have a very good network and have had success in a very long time or you need to be pretty damn good at something.
Like I said though, I think finance is a very difficult field to get into. It can be hard work for some people, and it’s not all about money; it’s about being able to put your head down and focus on finding the right career path. A lot of it is about how you work, where you live, what you do, how you dress, and what social circles you fit into. The best way to do this is to get into the right program.
It is true that the right career path can be quite tricky to get into but that’s the same type of thing that happens with finance. The way to get into finance is to find a bank or at least a credit union that has branches in your area which you then apply for. Then you start working at the bank’s corporate finance department. The real tricky part is to get the right type of work-life balance. Too many people are just happy to put in as little work as possible.
I’m not sure how much I’ve learned about finance from reading a book or watching a documentary or anything like that. I’ve only been exposed to the basics by watching a lot of movies and documentaries. But those are actually what I’m going for. The actual finance itself is very easy. I am not worried about finding the perfect job right away. There is no perfect job in finance.
I am a little worried about being able to get work that I want. If I get a job that I dont want then Im just going to have to give up a lot of my time, if I dont give up a lot of my time I dont get the work I want. Maybe Im just not smart enough to see if there is a market for me.
