I got a phone call about a resume I posted online a couple days ago.
It was from a financial advisory firm.
I was still half asleep when I answered the phone so I wasn't entirely sure off the bat whether or not it was actually happening. It was.
I pointed out that my degree was in Engineering, not finance. Apparently that doesn't matter.
Am I the only one that finds that more than a little unnerving?
I wonder if they were to find my blog and looked at the debt tallies on the side if they would still be calling me about a job...
But whatever, I told them they could send me the information if they'd like and I'd take a look at it. I watched all 19 of their Youtube videos and gave them a call. What could it hurt? Based on the fact that they didn't care that I had an Engineering background I knew before I called that it would be a commission base position. That being said, I am interested in finance, and it's better than sitting around waiting for an Engineering position to open up.
I'm still on the fence about whether or not I even want to be an Engineer anyway.
So, this morning I'm going to go talk to them. Something may come of it, or I might walk away shaking my head. Who knows, but its worth a shot.
