But there is an altogether different pot of gold waiting for these aspiring sportsmen at the end of the rainbow; a nice, fat six figure salary with a Wall Street firm just as soon as they graduate.

    The walking jobless
    There is a great depression hanging in the air like the sword of Damocles, and it is one that cuts sharp for those that are among the teeming unemployed of America. The bad news however is that this is set to worsen. The Labor department was the harbinger of bad news when they announced, quite somberly, that only 67,000 jobs had been created in the month of August. If you think that’s bad, compare that to the July figures of 107,000 before making a judgment. A large part of that had to do with the fact that the government laid off temporary Census workers during this period, and on the whole the economy lost some 54,000 jobs. On average, there is a need for some 125,000 new jobs created per month in order to keep pace with the population growth rate and the potential workforce that keeps  [...]

    Are You At the Right Job?
    Many people aren’t really sure about the synchronization between their job and their career. And many are even now aware about the difference. So, let us ponder upon these two terms, and understand what it means. When you take up a job, the only intention is to earn money. Even if you don’t like it, and the work doesn’t motivate you at all, you do it, simply to earn money. However, something that you don’t like cannot be your career choice. Hence, you wouldn’t be probably working at your current job five years from now. Career, however, is a continuous process. You may change many jobs, but your work would be similar throughout your life. During your initial years, you work towards developing your skills, and you change employment to get a high-paying job.

    Resume Is Important But Brush Up Your Soft Skills For A Job!
    Are you a Master’s degree holder in rocket science? Or are you a medical college intern aspiring for a post in a reputed hospital? Or are you a high school graduate on the look out for a sales job in one of the biggest retail stores of your town?

    Are You Investing to Increase Your Net Worth?
    The summation of total assets of any individual including the cash in bank account is called ‘individual net worth’. Is it? I don’t think so.
