Today in History
On 29 October 1929, ”Black Tuesday,” Stock Market crashes triggering “The Great Depression”.
I’ll tell you one random thing that gets me so curious these days.
It all begun when my previous classmate from engineering told us that he recently passed a Broker Licensure Exam. I just failed to bombard him with questions that time for I didn’t have any idea what to ask, and how to absorb his answers which might be filled with business/financial jargons. In short, I didn’t want to look dumb. Who does anyway?
I don’t know if he finished Engineering, but I bet he didn’t. Never heard of him doing so, or maybe, he dropped out. He is the type of guy who belongs to the geek-looking category but is not a geek-slash-nerd at all, is physically incapable of breaking someone’s body part, and socially incapacitated of offending another person. In short, he’s head-over-heels nice, quiet, shy, and harmless. With that in mind, I wonder how he’d pull it off.
But his stockbroking skill is not what I’m contemplating about.
… It’s me, my communication skills, my career, and my future financial standing.
Though I’m working for the contact centre industry, I couldn’t set aside the fact that it is for a financial service provider and that we are required to learn procedures, laws, and money-making business strategies at work. And to think that I am enjoying an office environment, sitting on a comfy reclining chair, and facing the computer all day while talking, doing Maths, and devising tactics, it makes me want to excel and keep it as a career ‘til the time I have to retire.
However, I’m taking up Engineering, and considering such path would make me shift to a business or a finance degree. (Sigh.) I’m so fickle-minded.
