*warning! life update post ahead!*

*skip to post two if you don't care*

*read this post and go straight to post three if you do care. do not read post two. do not collect 200.*


I'm through to the second stage of interviews for a new job with my company. :beer:

It'd be a massive promostion for me, and I'm woefully underexperienced for it, but I must be doing something right as I keep advancing to the next round of the process. I didn't think I'd even get a first interview, but I did. I thought there was no way I'd get to the second interview, but I did.

The sky's the limit! (more realistically, I think I've just reached my limit, but what the hell)

I've made it through on bullshit and stylish writing so far. The next stage actually requires some sort of advanced technical knowledge, which I don't have. I only do basic technical knowledge and advanced bullshitting. So that sucks. But the company know I don't have much experience and have still given me the chance anyway.

They must see something they like. And it can't be my ass.

Next interview is on Tuesday. Think lucky thoughts!

(btw, if I get the promotion I should be a Senior Analyst within a year. Currently I'm just a glorified call-centre peon. So this would be huge for me. But I won't get it. But maybe, just maybe, I will.)

Are there some technical books you could brush up on so you might be able to BS the rest?

I'll be attempting to do that, naturally. I also have a couple of exams to study for at the same time, so that doesn't make things any easier.

But yeah, I'll do everything I can do pick up more knowledge before Tuesday. Learning a few relevant buzz words couldn't hurt.

The job would be analysis into collective investment schemes.

Basically half of the job involves meeting with fund managers and quizzing them about their methods and objectives, plus analysing their past performance. The other half of the job involves writing pieces for client consumption (either direct mailings or through our magazine/website) to let them know what we think about certain investments.

I'd like to do this job one day. Even if I'm unsuccessful this time it should position me well to get a similar job a year or two down the line when I've accumulated more experience.

They're all bullshitters who decide investment policy according to kick-backs and guesswork.

Investment schemes sounds really illegal.

Good job so far. It is ABSOLUTELY CRUCIAL that you take 3-4 straight shots and smoke some pot before your interview...drown the smell heavily in cologne and you'll do fine!
